6 Breastfeeding Celebrity Moms
Breastfeeding my babies has been one of my favorite parts of motherhood. I've been blessed with breastfeeding success: 18 months with my son and two months (and counting) with my daughter. However, we all know breastfeeding isn't for everyone, and not every mother has a positive experience with it.
Celebrity moms seem to love breastfeeding for many reasons (although I suspect many do it for the “weight loss” associated with nursing your baby!). Check out some quotes from a few celebrity moms about their breastfeeding experience.
“All I ever heard was everyone bitch about it. Nobody ever said, ‘You are not going to believe how emotional this is.' It's like, I'll say I’m going to stop, and then I'm in there, feeding her.” — Jennifer Garner on breastfeeding her daughter Violet.
“I've heard that some babies just get over it and stop nursing. But personally, I’m still loving it. I love the bonding time, love that it's natural and what your body is made to do, love the benefits for his body and mine. I find it to be such an amazing womanly thing.” — Kourtney Kardashian during her time of breastfeeding her son, Mason.
“I'm a big live and let live-r. Seriously [do it], if it works for you, if it's easy. If it wasn’t easy, I wouldn’t have done it. Some people can't do it physically … so don't do it.” — Julie Bowen, who breastfed her twin boys.
“I didn't want him to quit. It felt like a total rejection. It was really hormonal, and trying to stop in the middle of tour was insane.” — Gwen Stefani when her son Zuma self-weaned during her reunion tour with No Doubt.
“We all have nipples. I don't care who I offend—my baby wants to eat. If I can't get a cover over me quick enough, so be it.” — Selma Blair on breastfeeding in public without a cover.
“I thought, you read all of the stuff in magazines like, ‘Oh, I breastfed my baby, and I am so skinny now.' I am breastfeeding my baby, and I am not getting any skinnier!” — Jenna Fischer on the so-called “magic” weight loss that comes with breastfeeding a baby.
