‘You wussed out!’ Sonia Kruger tells magazine editor she is ‘sending the wrong message’ by not putting Nicole Trunfio’s breastfeeding cover on newsstand issue.

“When I saw the cover of me breastfeeding, which was unplanned and just natural, I teared up and thought, ‘Wow this is such a special moment where my worlds have collided’,” Trunfio said. Reactions have been inevitably mixed, while many have said that the magazine detracted from a potentially powerful message by shying away from putting it on newsstands.The world has been talking about Nicole Trunfio’s ground-breaking ELLE magazine cover, which shows the model breastfeeding her four-month-old son Zion.

A nude Zion also appears in the 12-page shoot inside the magazine while his mother wears high-end clothing from designers including Chanel, Prada and Miu Miu. The last thing I want to do is be controversial, so please take this for what it is, let us #normalizebreastfeeding there is nothing worse than a mother that is judged for feeding her hungry child in public,” she writes. “#weareonlyhuman I’m so proud of this cover and for what it’s stands for. In her editor letter, Justine Cullen wrote: “This wasn’t a contrived situation: Zion needed a feed, Nicole gave it to him, and when we saw how beautiful they looked we simply moved her onto the set. I obviously don’t look like this while I am breastfeeding but this stands for all women out there, whether you breastfeed or not, we gave birth, we are women, we are mothers.

Model moms like Doutzen Kroes and Miranda Kerr have posted Instagrams of the act, while Olivia Wilde was featured in a Glamour editorial spread feeding her son, Otis. It was completely natural moment that resulted in a powerful picture.” “It’s a pitiful truth that women are still regularly shamed or made to feel awkward for performing the fundamental act of feeding their babies wherever and whenever they need to (of course, they’re also still shamed for not being able or choosing not to breastfeed, which I equally maddening,” Cullen said. “As much as I read, and as many classes as I took, I always believed my instincts would guide me — and I was right,” she said. “There was no buffer period between me before and me as a mum; as soon as he arrived, that’s all I was.” Kidspot.com.au writer Sabrina Rogers-Anderson told Daily Mail Australia the Elle cover was a gutsy move that displayed the model’s true beauty. ‘This beautiful shot took my breath away,’ she said.

The magazine also reported that baby Zion, whose dad is Grammy-winning artist Gary Clark Jr., apparently answered “nature’s call on the selection of international and local designer clothing worn by his mother in the shoot.” Oops.
