Beyonce, Alicia Silverstone, and Selma Blair have joined the ranks of celebrity moms who aren’t afraid to breastfeed in public!
Nursing a baby in the presence of others has been a hot-button issue for quite some time, but with high-profile celebrities such as new mom Beyonce being added to the list, the subject matter has come to the forefront of public debate once again!
Quickly after Blue Ivy’s birth, Beyonce caused controversy when she was publicly spotted nursing her baby in a restaurant!
And new mom Selma Blair isn’t afraid of anyone opposed to nursing in public. “The only time he cries is if he’s hungry,” Blair, 39, tells People. “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.”
Fellow actress Alicia Silverstone of Clueless fame was also spotted nursing her son Bear Blu in public while waking down the street. Talk about being a multi-tasker!
Where do you stand? Is it okay to breastfeed in public? Or is it simply too much for the eyes?
There is clear reasoning for both sides of this case, but we certainly aren’t judging. What do you think?
