In the picture, the  34-year-old is seen taking a selfie in a bathroom mirror, with her Cappellazzo Couture dress unfastened as she pumps breast milk. 

‘OMG is this the level social media has got too? This is completely unnecessary,’ wrote another frustrated follower. 

‘I’m all for breastfeeding in public but some things don’t need to be plastered on social media. Take the photo, sure, but keep it private,’ another added. 

However, many praised Lorinska for the honest picture, and thanked her for helping remove the stigma surrounding breastfeeding.
