Aside from the serene nursing photo, Newton also shared a separate glimpse into the twosome’s environmentally friendly transport to the music festival.
“Off to @latitudefest with my Booker,” she wrote next to a photo of herself on a bicycle, with her toddler strapped safely into a seat affixed to the back.
Aside from Booker, the ER alum is also mom to daughters Nico, 11, and Ripley, 15, with director and producer husband Ol Parker. She is a big supporter of more natural forms of parenting and gave birth to all three of her children at home.
“I’d never been in hospital as a child or as an adult really, and I just associated hospital with being ill,” she said in 2014 after Booker’s birth. “And I felt beautiful and healthy and wonderful when I was pregnant, and being at home was the place I felt most relaxed and comfortable.”
