Alyssa Milano is proving you don’t need laser vision and super strength to be a superhero. You just need to be a mom.
The actress is a staunch supporter of de-stigmatizing breastfeeding and makes that clear in a Halloween throwback photo of her breastfeeding in a Wonder Woman costume, hashtagged #normalizebreastfeeding.

The picture quickly climbed the Facebook trends charts and was applauded on Instagram. And for anyone criticizing it — you might want to rethink that.
In addition to regularly posting photos while she was breastfeeding, Milano was also known to serve any haters a dose of reality for their misguided outrage.
Wait! I don’t get it. No disrespect to Kim but… people are offended by my breastfeeding selfies & are fine with her (amazing) booty cover?

Milano has been very open about how even she has felt uncomfortable while breastfeeding in public, so hopefully this reminds all those multitasking moms out there that they don’t need to watch a Marvel movie to see superheroes. They just need to look in the mirror.
