Video of mum breastfeeding while doing a handstand will blow your mind

Every new mumma knows the multitasking while breastfeeding is essential to keeping yourself sane. 

However, one mum, Carlee Benear, takes multitasking to a whole other level. 

The yoga enthusiast and mum-of-three recently went viral showing a video breastfeeding- while doing a handstand. 


A beggar had been sitting by the side of a road for over thirty years. One day a stranger walked by. “Spare some change?” mumbled the beggar, mechanically holding out his old baseball cap. “I have nothing to give you,” said the stranger. Then he asked: “What’s that you are sitting on?” “Nothing,” replied the beggar. “Just an old box. I have been sitting on it for as long as I can remember.” “Ever looked inside?” asked the stranger. “No,” said the beggar. “What’s the point? There’s nothing in there.” “Have a look inside,” insisted the stranger. The beggar managed to pry open the lid. With astonishment, disbelief, and elation, he saw that the box was filled with gold. I am that stranger who has nothing to give you and who is telling you to look inside. Not inside any box, as in the parable, but somewhere even closer: inside yourself.

We are blown away. 

Not only has all that yoga made her super fit, Carlee originally turned to yoga as a coping mechanism while suffering from postpartum depression. 

"My yoga journey started after the birth of my second child. I wasn't willing to go through postpartum depression again, so I actively committed to the journey within,' she shared on her 66,000 follower-strong Instagram. 

"My kids are always around me and my two boys started their journey along with me. When we found out we were expecting again, we celebrated the creation of life together as my daughter grew inside my womb." 

As well as helping her with her postpartum depression, but Carlee told The Daily Mail that yoga has improved her s a mother. 

"Life as a mother has it's stresses," she writes. "But yoga helps us all reconnect to what is really the must do's of everyday life. To love and be loved. Bringing her to our practice of embracing life was the natural choice. They grow up learning to be limitless."

As with any breastfeeding photos, Carlee has had her fair share of critics. For her, breastfeeding is "24/7" dedication. 

"I believe as parents it is our duty to make that time for our self because we can not pour from an empty cup,' she said.

"Breastfeeding yoga has helped me combat postpartum depression and has made my breastfeeding journey free of any bumps in the road, such as mastitis, worry of lacking in supply, getting over those first few weeks of tenderness, let down control and the stresses of being needed around the clock- to name a few."

She continues to say that every mother should feel comfortable breastfeeding wherever and however she wants;   

"Society has taught us to just hand over our children and let the world sculpt them, we are losing our connections in families by this view and missing out on many opportunities to not only TEACH our own kids , but LEARN from them." 

She only has positive things to say towards those who don't approve of her parenting choices. 

"We need to stop projecting (and running away from) our hurt onto others in the form of harsh judgmental words or actions, so that we can all know peace and free ourselves from the pain of the past, resolve our buried issues and evolve together," she said.

"We may never agree, because there is no one way to do ANYTHING, but what we can learn from each other through acceptance is what makes this human experience so beautiful."
