Alyssa Milano is not only a famous actress, but she is also known for being a breastfeeding advocate. She recently posted a picture of herself breastfeeding her one year-old daughter, Elizabeth. Milano has been very outspoken about breastfeeding and has tried to erase the stigma associated with it, stating that women should not be ashamed to breastfeed in public just because some people are bothered by the idea.
Alyssa’s photo has been liked over 33,000 times on Instagram. It has also received over 137,000 likes on Facebook. Like many mothers, Alyssa has been shamed for breastfeeding her child. In September 2015, Alyssa posted a photo of herself breastfeeding her newborn, and she received a lot of backlash for it. However, many people defended the photo.
They stated that society praises women for using their breasts in a sexual way while shaming women for breastfeeding their children. Alyssa also stated that society seems to be more accepting of women baring their breasts than using the breasts for what they were really made for, which is nourishing another human being, which also helps bonds the mother with the child.
Additionally, she stated that she may breastfeed her daughter until she is six years-old. Alyssa has posted many other photos of herself breastfeeding. She posted a picture of herself breastfeeding in a Wonder Woman concert during Halloween. She also breastfeed her daughter as she prepared to appear on “The Talk,” which is a CBS talk show.
