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.

Lesley-Ann Brandt Defends Breastfeeding Photo

New mom Lesley-Ann Brandt shared a breastfeeding selfie via Instagram.

Shortly after posting the image feeding her newborn son Kingston, the proud nursing mama slammed some online critics.

“This is motherhood,” the Lucifer actress, 35, captioned the image breastfeeding her son.

She added: “Needing to pee so badly but you just rocked the perfect latch and Bebe is nuzzled in nicely for a good feed. Priorities people. Priorities.

#kingstonpayne #myking#normalizebreastfeeding#breastfeedwithoutfear#theseboobsareoutofcontrol.”

After receiving a series of negative online comments, the actress issued a statement.

“Apparently an innocent photo of me feeding my child has ‘offended’ some on [Facebook] and sparked a really interesting and disturbing debate. ‘It’s a private moment, she’s seeking attention, why would she post that, gross, women have been doing it for thousands of years, so what, you should cover up.’ The irony is that these some men and sadly women, are all but fine to see these boobs in my work (Spartacus) but breastfeeding my son? How dare I!” she wrote.

She added: “What does it say about how we treat mothers and women when folks are fine for an actress to show cleavage or boobs in a show, but heaven forbid she celebrates what is arguably one of the hardest things she’s done – nourish her child. Using my social media to positively show breast feeding is my choice and will hopefully give other mama’s out there the confidence to NOT go to a bathroom to feed their babies. AND if you have a problem with my son eating, ‘suck it.’”

The Spartacus: Blood and Sand actress and husband, Suits star Chris Payne Gilbertwelcomed their first child – full name Kingston Payne Brandt-Gilbert – last month.

“Kingston Payne Brandt-Gilbert I love you. Welcome son @chrispaynegilbert thank you for this incredible gift,” she announced at the time.

Peta Murgatroyd On Being A First-Time Mom: “It Was Overwhelming”


Dancing with the Stars pro Peta Murgatroyd covers the latest issue of Fit Pregnancy and Baby with her 4-month-old son Shai and opens up about family life with fiancé Maksim Chmerkovskiy.

On her surprise pregnancy: “Maks and I were so careful, but one night we weren’t. Days later I had this massive hot flash and I thought, ‘I better take a test.’ So I did. ‘What?! How?!’ A tear went down my cheek, because I didn’t know what to do. I was thinking, ‘Do I go to work? Do I call 100 people?’ I called Maks, who was in Vegas, and said, ‘Well, I’m pregnant.’ He thought I was kidding. When I told him I wasn’t, he said, ‘Wow, that’s good, babe’ in kind of a monotone. It was really weird! He added, ‘I’m in a car full of people. I love you so much. I’ll call you back.’ He did a few minutes later and he was absolutely thrilled and came straight home to celebrate.”

On being pregnant during DWTS: “I had to dance through nausea, which wasn’t great. The worst thing, though, was fatigue. I’d literally fall asleep on the couch in the studio while I was supposed to be teaching Nyle [DiMarco, a model and deaf activist]. Eventually Nyle said, ‘I know your secret.’ He’d figured it out, because my boobs had grown and Maks was bringing me food every day. But Nyle and I won the season with me eight weeks’ pregnant!”

On her birth story: “I was induced at 40 weeks, because they thought Shai was going to be too big. [He was 7 pounds, 11 ounces.] My plan was to give birth naturally. But my doctor warned me that induction would hurt, so I got an epidural. Then I got pitocin, which gave me terrible shakes. Because of the epidural, I never had to feel intense contractions. Half the time Maks and I were laughing, half the time we were staring at the monitor. Sometime during the night, my water broke. I pushed for 30 minutes and he was here! Suddenly my baby was on my chest. Maks and I were in shock for the first 30 seconds. Then Maks started to cry, and then I did too. Shai looked at me, took his first breath, and just made a little noise. It was the best day of my life.”

On her post-baby body: “I still looked five months pregnant right after I gave birth. A friend who came to the hospital said, ‘Oh, you sure there’s not another one in there?’ I laughed, then went into the bathroom and cried. I’d just had this beautiful kid. I was high on life. That was a joke that I didn’t need to hear. Back home, I didn’t recognize my body. I had massive DDD boobs. It was overwhelming. So I posted a selfie on Instagram as a way to reach out to other women. I’m a dancer who is usually pretty damn fit, and I looked like a different person. Now I know you have to give yourself time.”

On the newborn phase: “At first, I had no idea what I was doing. I’d never even held a newborn before. I was nervous, and I didn’t want to make any mistakes. I tried to give Shai a bath and he was so slippery, I felt like I was going to drop him, so I had my nanny do it for weeks. She’s a godsend. She said, “You’ll do it when you’re ready.’ And eventually I did. Now his bathtime is one of my favorite times of the day.”

On breastfeeding: “Shai latched on right away, so that was incredible. What they don’t tell you is when breast milk comes in, your boobs go rock-hard. That was super painful! I had Maks in the shower with me, massaging my boobs. My nipples were bleeding too. But now, breastfeeding is totally fine. I even look forward to pumping. I write notes on my phone, watch videos, plan my choreography. The only funny part is my left boob no longer produces anything. All the milk comes from my right boob. Everybody at work knows I’ve got one big boob. It’s hysterical.”

On their scare: “When Shai was 11 days old, he got a fever and we took him to the hospital, where he stayed for two days. He had a bacterial infection. That experience made me more fearful. Our house went into lockdown. We put a Purell dispenser at every door and allowed only family to see him. No friends. Having visitors can feel overwhelming anyway. And I wanted Shai to myself for a while.”

Candice Swanepoel’s Breastfeeding Selfie


New mom Candice Swanepoel posted a breastfeeding photo with son Anacã, 2 months, via Instagram Sunday.

Along with the selfie, the Victoria’s Secret model, 28, shared a strong message about women’s rights to nurse in public.

“Many women today are shamed for breastfeeding in public, or even kicked out of public places for feeding their children. I have been made to feel the need to cover up and somewhat shy to feed my baby in public places but strangely feel nothing for the topless editorials I’ve done in the name of art..?” she wrote.

She continued: “The world has been desensitized to the sexualization of the breast and to violence on tv…why should it be different when it comes to breastfeeding? -Breastfeeding is not sexual it’s natural- Those who feel it is wrong to feed your child in public need to get educated on the benefits breastfeeding has on mother and child and intern on society as a whole. #mothernature.”

In October, the South African beauty introduced her newborn on social media.

“Life is sweet. Anacan (Anacã) 5th-October -2016,” she the image of her baby boy, whom she welcomed with fiancé Hermann Nicoli.

The model mom recently posted a sweet photo holding her baby boy.

“2 months of pure joy with my little love,” she captioned the cute snapshot.
