Alyssa Milano Asks Why Her Breastfeeding Selfie Received More Backlash Than Kim Kardashian’s Naked Pics

  • Actress Alyssa Milano, whose breastfeeding selfie apparently received a ton of backlash, wondered why she took more heat than Kim Kardashian did for her naked Paper magazine photo shoot. She tweeted, “Wait! I don’t get it. No disrespect to Kim but… people are offended by my breastfeeding selfies & are fine with her (amazing) booty cover?” TRUTH. [You Beauty]
  • Kim Kardashian recently spoke to the Australian show “The Project” about her controversial paper photo shoot with photographer Jean-Paul Goude, saying, “I’m never one to preach, but I felt really positive and really good about myself. I love the photos, I did it for me, I hope other people like them.” Wellllll… [Us Weekly]
  • Charles Manson has been granted permission to wed his 26-year-old girlfriend. AND I’M STILL SINGLE. [Us Weekly]
  • Jimmy Kimmel will reveal who has won People‘s coveted (heh) “Sexiest Man Alive” title on his show tonight. I feel like the Ryan Gosling ship has passed, so I’m going to take a guess that the winner will either be Chris Pratt (weird) or maybe Eddie Redmayne? I would give it to Charlie Hunnam though. DAT ASS. [People]

Sometimes it feels like moms who breastfeed in public can’t catch a break. Or, in the case of a Virginia mother, a few sips of beer.

A woman identified as “Crystal” was thrown out of Big Woody’s Bar and Grill for drinking a beer while she nursed her baby. Crystal says she only had one sip before beginning to feed her 11-month old and was going to drink the rest once she finished nursing. Before she was able to, however, a handful of other customers complained and she was asked to leave the restaurant by management. According to the bar’s co-owner, Jeff Leroy (who was not present at the time of the incident), the issue was less with the breastfeeding and more about the drinking of alcohol. Keep reading »

  • Breastfeeding moms held a “nurse-in” at Anthropologie after a woman shopping in a Los Angeles store was escorted by a manager to the bathroom to continue feeding her kid. Might I remind you that breastfeeding in public is legal in California? And that no one should have to hang out in the toilet any longer than necessary? [Mommyish]

Glamour Photographs Olivia Wilde Breastfeeding At A Diner Wearing A Fancy Gown, As You Do

“Being shot with [my son] Otis is so perfect because any portrait of me right now isn’t complete without my identity as a mother being a part of that. Breast-feeding is the most natural thing. I don’t know, now it feels like Otis should always be on my breast. It felt like we were capturing that multifaceted woman we’ve been discussing—that we know we can be. You can be someone who is at once maternal and professional and sexy and self-possessed. [But] I mean, I certainly don’t really look like that when I’m [typically] breast-feeding. And there’s usually a diaper involved.”

Olivia Wilde is one glamourous nursing mommy in the new issue of Glamour, although she admits herself that it’s more fantasy than reality! It’s still a gorgeous photo, though. [Glamour] [Photo credit: Patrick Demarchelier for Glamour]

You Can Add Gwen Stefani To The List Of Celebs Who Are Totally Cool With Breastfeeding

In another step towards killing the taboo surrounding the totally normal act that is breastfeeding, Gwen Stefani shared this sweet photo of herself nursing her baby son Apollo. Casually hanging out next to a Swiss mountain makes motherhood a bit more picturesque for her than the average parent, but I’m still loving that she posted this picture. On top of the adorable factor, the blanket Apollo is swaddled in is contributing to AIDS research. The company that sells it, aden + anais, donates portions of proceeds to the charity (RED). Gwen is the coolest, no? [Huffington Post]

 

 

 

 

Awesome Teenage Barista Defends Breastfeeding Mom Against Bully, Is My New Hero

breastfeeding-baby-042314

Given all the stories we hear about women getting flack for breastfeeding in public, it’s so uplifting to hear about the experience of Julia Wykes, who was defended by a teenage Starbucks barista. Wykes stopped at the coffee shop while running errands with her five-month-old son; when he started to get cranky in line, she sat down to nurse him.

A fellow customer spotted this, and loudly bitched to the barista about Wykes. She asked the barista to stop her from breastfeeding because it was “disgusting.” The barista told the woman he’d take care of it and approached Wykes, but instead of confronting her, he offered her a voucher for a free drink and said, “I’m sorry you had to deal with such unpleasantness today,” prompting the bully to storm out of the shop.
