Celebrity Moms React To Controversial TIME Breastfeeding Cover

The latest cover of TIME showcasing 26-year-old mom-of-two Jamie Lynne Grumet breastfeeding her 3-year-old son with the title ‘Are You Mom Enough?’ recently had the internet abuzz with strong reactions. Some of Hollywood’s moms weighed in on the controversy.

[email protected] no! You missed the mark! You’re supposed to be making it easier for breastfeeding moms. Your cover is [exploitative] & extreme,” new mom Alyssa Milano, who has been open about nursing 8-month-old son Milo, tweeted.

“Jamie Lynne Grumet breastfeeding her 3 yr old on @time Magazine’s cover is causing a fuss. @brochman says extended breastfeeding is more common than we think,” Danica McKellar, mom to son Draco, wrote on Facebook. “Not sure what else to say other than I’m 20 months into it and going strong…!”

The Big Bang Theory star Mayim Bialik – who has opened up to Celebrity Baby Scoop about being pro-attachment parenting – tweeted that she was “being bombarded” to give her thoughts on the topic.

“This is not easy, to try and speak for all of us, but I will do my best to make you proud,” she wrote on Facebook.

Bialik went on to praise Grumet for her “amazing” story.

I was shocked how amazing her story was. And breastfeeding an adopted baby is incredible. And she gave an educated and eloquent set of responses. I would not have done a photo shoot myself, but I respect her and think she is a smart woman.”

The Blossom alum, who wrote about her experiences and parenting philosophies in Beyond the Sling: A Real-Life Guide to Raising Confident, Loving Children the Attachment Parenting Way, is still nursing her 3½-year-old son Fred.

Mila Kunis Was Shamed For Breastfeeding In Public

mila-kunis-breastfeeding-in-public

Bad Moms star Mila Kunis opened up to Vanity Fair about being shamed for breastfeeding her daughter Wyatt, 21 months, in public.

“I support every woman’s choice in what she wants to do and whatever makes them happy, but for me, I did nurse my child and I literally breastfed everywhere,” Kunis dished. “There were many times where I didn’t bring a cover with me, and so I just did it in a restaurant, in the subway, in the park, at airports, and in planes. Why did I do it in public? Because I had to feed my child. She’s hungry. I need to feed her whether it’s out of a bottle or out of my boob no matter where I was.”

The actress and her husband, That ’70s Show costar Ashton Kutcher, were both surprised it’s still considered taboo by some.

“It always made my husband and I feel a little weird,” she shared. “It took us a little back because people actually looked at us in a shameful [way], and we were like, ‘Oh my God,’ because it’s so not a sexual act. It didn’t matter to me what other people thought. That’s what I chose to do, but I think it’s unfortunate that people are so hard on women who choose to do it and do it in public. In the States and in our culture, we sexualize the breast so much that there’s an aspect of it that people just don’t know how to wrap their head around the idea of showing your breast in public. But I respect the opinions on both sides. If it’s not for you, don’t look.”

Now that she’s expecting her second child, she’s having fun with her maternity fashions while promoting Bad Moms.

“I can get away with different styles that I normally couldn’t since I’m pregnant, but there’s a fine line,” said Kunis. “There’s a line where I’m like, ‘I feel great. Let’s have fun and do something different and crazy,’ and then it’s like, ‘I don’t know if that’s going to fit in a week. My belly keeps growing and will that outfit still look the same? So, I go with whatever dress that is simple and feels right. I play with the size. Everything has to be fitted to a point of expansion. I don’t want to wear anything just to show off my belly.”

But will she be pregnant in heels?

“I’m one of those ladies that likes to be in flats,” Kunis admitted. “I don’t necessarily want to wear heels while I’m pregnant. I’ll only wear when them when I need to!”

Olivia Wilde: “I’ve Been Pretty Lazy This Time Around”

olivia-wilde-baby-bump-debut

Expectant mama Olivia Wilde opens up to Yahoo! Beauty about her beauty routine, feeling “pretty lazy” during her second pregnancy, what she’s learned since breastfeeding her son Otis in the pages of Glamour, and how she’s raising her now 2-year-old son to be a feminist.

On how her beauty routine changed since becoming a mother: “I certainly have less time and I think I’ve just gotten a bit more efficient about getting ready, whereas before I would have a few more minutes to experiment with different looks. Now I kind of know what I’m going to go for and I’m good about getting it done in five minutes.”

On the type of products and ingredients you put on your body while pregnant: “I just try to stay conscious of it. I try to educate myself as much as possible on what’s in the products. It’s one reason I really like the Revlon Nail Enamels because they are formaldehyde-free. And making sure that I’m not overdoing it. It’s a bit easier to be minimalist because I don’t have the time to be obsessive with makeup.

On trying to stay healthy in her second pregnancy: “It’s super hard, and certainly for the second child, I think it’s a little harder to stay healthy. You’re feeding your first kid chicken nuggets and mac and cheese, and it all looks so irresistible. I’m pretty active just running after my son and hanging out with him. I try also as a pregnant person to stay limber and relax. Honestly, I’ve been pretty lazy this time around. You have to be forgiving of yourself and realize you are doing something and working hard building a little human. Most of the time, I focus on eating well. One of my weaknesses is that I love Coca-Cola. A terrible thing that I love, but that’s something that I’ll cut out. I’m making baby steps towards a healthy lifestyle this time around.”

On how she felt about becoming the “face” of breastfeeding in public after her Glamour photo shoot: “I’ve learned a lot about that debate since that photo shoot and certainly since becoming a mother. One thing that is very clear to me is that it should be every individual woman’s choice what she wants to do. But once she makes that choice, she should be publicly permitted to do that in whatever way she needs to. Certainly there should be no pressure on women to breastfeed, or they are made to seem like they are terrible mothers. I think that’s really unfair. It was an interesting experience because that photo shoot came out of a very organic moment of having to feed my son because it was just my choice to breastfeed. But I did not in any way intend to shame women who had chosen not to breastfeed for whatever reason. It’s a complex issue, but the one thing that’s not complex is that people should be allowed to breastfeed wherever they want, whenever they want.”

On if she’s teaching her son about beauty standards and feminism: “Absolutely! I hope to raise a child who values people for what’s within them and yet I hope he experiments with his own identity and who he wants to be. I look forward to helping him feel that type of confidence I felt when growing up. On a superficial level, I just experimented with every hair color underneath the sun, every type of makeup look. I’m grateful now that my parents let me go through my own process of self-discovery and I think you can’t restrict kids in that way. They have to make mistakes, play, and then figure it out in the end. In terms of feminism, yes, I like to think he’s already a little feminist. And he is. He’s a really good guy. I want to promote the idea that the definition of feminism is equality and it’s something that’s not difficult to teach children because they are born with that sensibility. They are only taught to separate people and value them differently once they get older. Luckily, I’m just embracing the perspective he was born with.”

Karolína Kurková: “Breastfeeding Is Beautiful”

karolina-kurkova-the-edit

Supermodel Karolína Kurková covers the latest issue of The Edit and opens up about family life with husband Archie Drury and their two sons: Tobin, 6, and Noah, 3 months.

On finding time to workout: “It’s hard to stay in shape when you have kids. You work, you look after them and you’re exhausted, but to go to the gym you have to have energy. But if my body feels soft and weak, I mentally start to feel the same. When I have a good workout and get those endorphins out, it makes a huge difference.”

On motherhood: “I’m a modern mom, breastfeeding and working, being professional but giving my all to my baby. This is my fifth photo shoot since having my son [Noah] and he’s been on every one. I couldn’t do it if he wasn’t able to come with me – I need him nearby so I’m able to focus on work and not be worrying if he’s ok. I really look up to women who do it all and do it well. They’re my heroes.”

On her online #BreastfeedingSelfie campaign: “Breastfeeding is beautiful and special but it’s hard and it can be painful. When I posted a picture of me feeding my baby, I didn’t plan to start a conversation; I wanted to celebrate the women who do it too. And when we’re looking at pictures and music videos that are much more vulgar, how can we have a problem with something so sweet and precious? I’m all about empowering women, because whether you’re working or if you’re at home taking care of your kids, it’s not easy being a woman.”

On having a second child: “Having a second baby is really pushing me. I can’t believe I’m already working; with my first, I took it much more slowly. My kids inspire me to go out and create, to realize that this is not the time to be shy. They’re also teaching me that it’s ok to fail, as long as you do the best you can.”
