Gisele Bundchen, a skinny model lady that gave birth to her child a while back, stated that “there should be a worldwide law that mothers should breastfeed their babies for six months. ”
Is she for real?
I’m sure what she meant to say was that she encourages and wants moms to breastfeed for at least six months. I am giving her the credit for that. It was probably one of those moments where the media made it sound like something it wasn’t, or exaggerated to a point, but either way, I can see what she is saying here; she wants moms to breastfeed for six months. As you know, I’m all for breastfeeding. I did it for 12 months and I promote, encourage, believe in it… but a law? I don’t think that’s the best thing to do.
Encouraging and doing all we can to help moms breastfeed for six months? Absolutely!
But a law? Um, no.
