Blake Lively: The PERKS of breastfeeding

Blake Lively took to Instagram to post a photo of herself breastfeeding baby James—and highlighting its "perks."

Blake Lively, 27, shared a pic of her travels with baby James in Bankok. And it's been making the rounds on the Internet—pretty much because, as you see above, it's a photo of her breasts with a caption suggesting how "perky" breastfeeding makes them.

"The PERKS of breastfeeding," she writes. Ha, punny mama! *Cough.*

Apparently, Blake took a break from filming a scene for her next flick, All I See Is You, to breastfeed six-month-old baby James and snap the Instagram pic. And maybe it was a little tease for hubby Ryan Reynolds, whom she's been away from for a week while on the job.

There's been lots of talk about Instagram and Facebook's policies around posting breastfeeding photos. It's interesting to note that, unlike celebs like Alyssa Milano and Olivia Wilde, she's cut off the pic so you can't see the baby or the actual act.

Oh, and there's a piece of rice in Blake's hair. Not really sure what that's about except that maybe she noticed it was there after the shot was taken and wanted us to know it wasn't dandruff?!
