42 year old, mother of two, Alyssa Milano, is a very vocal breastfeeding advocate and regularly posts images of herself feeding her children to her Instagram account. The actress recently spoke to Entertainment Tonight about the double standards that surround breastfeeding.
The Charmed actress was recently interviewed by Entertainment Tonight and spoke about the different reactions to the way breasts are seen. She touched on how people are celebrating the fact that Miley Cyrus can walk around with next to nothing on at the VMA’s and be praised for her bravery, yet when someone posts an image to their social account showing a child being breastfed then it causes all sorts of debate.
Alyssa said “I think people are more comfortable sexualizing breasts than relating them to what they were made for, which is feeding another human.”
She then throws a message to her haters saying “I don’t care, I’m going to keep breastfeeding, maybe even until [Elizabella is] 6!”
I say GO ALYSSA! We totally agree with the fact that the world seems to be OK with the sexualisation of breasts, yet are divided when it comes to seeing breastfeeding children.
Here are some of the beautiful images Alyssa has shared with the world:
