While the whole "celebrities are just like us" cliché often seems like a bit of stretch, there is one area where Hollywood moms have shown they're not all that different from their non-famous counterparts -- breastfeeding. In honor of World Breastfeeding Week, here is a compilation of memorable moments when celebrity moms shared their own nursing experiences.

In a July 2015 interview with Yahoo Parenting, the actress explained that her company Honest Co. supports both breastfeeding and formula feeding parents. “The overall community online was either one or the other. And a lot of my friends did both," Alba said. "So I wanted to develop a real dialogue, and create a line that’s for everyone. So whether you want to breastfeed, or whether you want to supplement feed, we’re going to give you the best in both areas.”

In her book, The Honest Life, she shared her personal breastfeeding journey, writing, “I breastfed as long as I could, but not as long as I wanted. I had to get back to work, and I wasn’t able to keep it going.”
