Snooki Takes Back Her Thoughts on Breastfeeding

Earlier this summer Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi suggested breastfeeding was not something she was interested in, saying, “It just looks so painful and gross … It’s kind of like you’re a cow, and you just milk it?” However, within days of giving birth to her baby boy, Lorenzo Dominic LaValle, she changed her tune.
She tweeted, “I love nursing my little man!” in response to a follower’s question about whether she was breastfeeding. She later followed that Tweet with “#BreastPump instead of #FistPump”. I am glad that Snooki decided to breastfeed her baby boy, or at least try it out.
I understand that some women are uncomfortable about or not at all interested in breastfeeding, and that is alright. I truly think the reason I was successful at breastfeeding was that not doing it was never even an option for me. I grew up knowing I was breastfed, watched other women in my circle breastfeed, and was not grossed out or apprehensive about the process at all.
Snooki was not the only one who gave birth this week though.
Possibly the most exciting arrival was that of Bill and Giuliana Rancic. They welcomed a baby boy, Edward Duke Rancic, via a gestational surrogate.
Graham Elliot and wife Allie welcomed son Jedediah Lindsay Bowles on Saturday, Aug. 25
Anna Faris and Chris Pratt recently welcomed their son Jack.
And finally, Finn Davey McDermott was born Thursday, Aug. 30 to Tori Spelling and Dean McDermott.
Did having a baby change your opinion on breastfeeding?
What do you think?
