Breastfeeding is constantly seen as taboo. There's a constant, on-going debate about whether it should be permitted in public, and there's even the question of whether or not it's the right choice for a mother. Obviously the answers to both of those questions can only be answered by the mother, herself. In a recent tweet made it clearer than ever that breastfeeding mommas are rockstars.

Childbirth is a miraculous feat, in and of itself.

Once the baby is born, a mother's body produces a magical cocktail of nutrients that comes naturally from her body.

However, one history professor realized that the effort mothers put into breastfeeding is not something to scoff at.

Her tweet reads,

"Someone just told me she had spent roughly 4866 hours of her life breastfeeding and that breastmilk is only free if we think of women's time, bodies, and carework as worthless. . . . . . . . 🧠💥"

Wow. Say it again for the people in the back.

People are reeling from the truth of Lovell's revelation.

I know I don't say it enough. Thanks, Mom.
