Celebrity Moms React To Controversial TIME Breastfeeding Cover

77ae1101120521 600 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.

“@Time 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.

Penélope Cruz: “Breastfeeding Is Addictive”

5e134.Penelope Cruz Allure jmd 121613 copy 500x700 Penélope Cruz: “Breastfeeding Is Addictive”

Academy Award-winner Penélope Cruz covers the January 2014 issue of Allure. The 39-year-old actress – married to actor Javier Bardem with two kids Leo, 2, and Luna, 5 months – opens up about breastfeeding and her BFF Salma Hayek.

On breastfeeding: “I’m supposed to get extra calories because breastfeeding you burn, like, an extra 500 a day. I was breastfeeding my son 13 months, and I plan to do the same with my daughter. [Breastfeeding] is addictive. It’s hard when the day comes when you have to stop.”

On family & her new role: ”I always knew I wanted a family because of the way I grew up. Family has always been the most important thing.” Motherhood is the central theme of her new movie Twice Born, a story of a woman’s fertility struggles, set against the brutality of the Bosnian war. “She talks in a way that is really shocking many times,” Penélope says of her role in the film. “[She's] not very politically correct. Because she had that dream of becoming a mother and [it's] not happening, she says she feels defective.”

On her childhood: “In my house every Sunday, everybody was cleaning the house. There was always music, and everybody was dancing, sometimes naked around the house. Not hippie, but very free.”

On Salma Hayek: “She’s one of my best friends. We call each other huevos [eggs]. It was because when we were working together, we didn’t have children yet, so we used to sleep much more than now. So it was a way to call each other lazy. We slept in the same bed so many times and it was like she was always trying to wake me up and call me huevos.”

10 Star Moms Seen Breastfeeding In Public

0559rdashian Kourtney JDG 072013 511593341 500x563 10 Star Moms Seen Breastfeeding In Public

Considering their lack of anonymity with paparazzi lurking at every street corner, we salute celebrity moms who breastfeed their babies while out and about!

Although it’s still considered taboo in some circles, there’s no shame in nursing your baby in public… or on the cover of a magazine for that matter! And we’re so glad that celebrity moms such as Gwen StefaniMaggie GyllenhaalKourtney Kardashian and Miranda Kerr are on board. And not to mention Salma Hayek‘s experience with wet nursing a starving infant in Africa.

Take a look through our pictures and read about 10 celebrity moms who have breastfed in public.

Reality star Kourtney Kardashian was seen breastfeeding her 1-year-old daughter Penelope last weekend in Miami, Florida.

After making taking a dip in the pool with her kids, Kourtney was later seen breastfeeding her 12-month-old baby girl.

Kourtney has been outspoken about her love for breastfeeding. When her sister, Kim Kardashian, was pregnant, Kim recalled a conversation she had with Kourtney about the possibility of wet nursing.

“She said to me, ‘One sister should babysit all the kids, so I can go out or vice-versa, and whichever sister is babysitting should just breastfeed all the kids that are there,’” Kim shared.

While Kim was “disgusted” by the idea, she went on to ask Kourtney, “Does that not freak you out?”

Kourtney responded with, “No, it doesn’t,” adding, ”That’s what they did back in the day.”

Rockstar mama Gwen Stefani shared a tender moment with her yongest son, then 3-month-old Zuma, on a park bench in Los Angeles, Calif. A few months later, the mom-of-two talked about how Zuma self-weaned during No Doubt’s reunion tour.

“I didn’t want him to [quit],” Gwen said. “It felt like a total rejection. It was really hormonal, and trying to stop in the middle of tour was insane.”

When her daughter Ramona was 7-months-old, Maggie Gyllenhaal was caught by the paparazzi breastfeeding in a New York City park. At the time, the internet was abuzz with controversy over the intimate shots. Some said the paparazzi were too intrusive, while others felt that Maggie didn’t seem fazed at all – regardless of who saw her – as she breastfed her baby in public.

The Academy Award-nominated actress has commented about the pressures of breastfeeding and raising a newborn.

“I’m not a leave-them-in-their-crib-to-cry kind of girl. Fundamentally, I didn’t find that worked. Everyone’s got their own thing, you know? You can’t tell another person when it’s right to stop breastfeeding, or how to put your kid to sleep. Every child is different.”

Modern Family star Julie Bowen made an appearance on Lopez Tonight in 2010, where she shared a picture and talked to George Lopez about nursing her then 1-year-old twin boys, John and Gus.

“It’s like two little liposuction machines on you,” she said. “They suck the fat out of you. They call it the ‘double football hold.’ You hold one here, and here [gesturing to her breasts], like two footballs… They’re doing God’s work right there, helping me return to my birth weight.”

Julie later commented on her feelings about the pressures of breastfeeding.

“I’m a big live and let live-r,” Julie said. “Seriously [do it], if it works for you, if it’s easy. If it wasn’t easy, I wouldn’t have done it. Some people can’t do it physically…so don’t do it.”

Victoria’s Secret model Miranda Kerr and her handsome hubby Orlando Bloom welcomed their first child in January 2011. The model mom tweeted a gorgeous photo of her and baby Flynn, then 3 months. “Another day in the office,” the new mom wrote, sharing a photo of herself in full hair and make-up at a photo shoot breastfeeding her adorable babe.

Having returned to work just a couple of months after giving birth, Miranda said her quick post-baby weight loss is thanks in part to breastfeeding.

“I think if you really eating the right foods, putting the nutrition into your body and doing yoga and breastfeeding; those things have helped me get back into shape. I remember I was on the elliptical machine when I was pregnant with Flynn.”

The Australian beauty added,

“I intend to breastfeed for as long as I can,” she said. “My breast milk will give our little Flynn the nutrition he needs for his continued healthy development and to all mums out there I am sure you will make the right choice for you and your baby.”

Just hours after giving birth to Flynn, Miranda shared a precious picture breastfeeding her newborn. In response to the photo, she said,

“The photo was one of the first photos Orlando took. We both loved it and we wanted to share it. The pleasant surprise was that it also had the added benefit of promoting breastfeeding which to me is the most natural thing in the world and I love it.”

W magazine’s November 2008 issue celebrated art — namely Brad Pitt’s photographs of his gorgeous family. His black-and-white shot of Angelina Jolie feeding one of their then 3-month-old twins [Knox or Vivienne] with the baby’s tiny fingers graced the cover of W. The serene, natural and relaxed shot only reaffirmed Angelina’s breathtaking beauty.

Angie opened up about breastfeeding during a very emotional time of her life.

“I had lost my mum, I’d had a baby and I’d been breastfeeding and I was in a very emotional place as a woman. I knew instinctually and talked to Brad about it, that if I could find something that would get me physical again it would be like therapy, because everything was making me cry.”

On a goodwill trip to Sierra Leone in 2009, Salma Hayek famously breastfed a week-old infant whose mother was too malnourished to produce milk herself. The actress recalled the wet nurse experience.

“The baby was perfectly healthy, but the mother didn’t have milk. He was very hungry. I was weaning Valentina [then 2-years-old], but I still had a lot of milk that I was pumping, so I breast-fed the baby,” she says, her voice dropping. “You should have seen his eyes. When he felt the nourishment, he immediately stopped crying.”

Salma says she was hoping to raise awareness that Sierra Leone has the highest infant mortality rate in the world. She went on to say, “I actually think my baby would be very proud to share her milk. And when she grows up I’m going to make sure she continues to be a generous, caring person.”

Years later, Salma continues to answer questions about acting as a wet nurse.

If you have milk, you have milk, and if they’re hungry, they’re hungry,” she said. “I think it’s a beautiful thing, because motherhood is a very strong place for women to connect and understand each other.”

James Bond star Pierce Brosnan and his wife, former journalist Keely Shaye Smith, famously graced the December 1997 issue of REDBOOK with their then 11-month-old son Dylan. Then a fairy revolutionary cover, editor in chief Kate White explained that the magazine produced two covers – one being “more traditional” – for the first time in its history because they didn’t want “to force the image on anyone.”

Meanwhile, some convenience-store-chain owners said that if customers complained, they reserved the right to move the cover behind the counter along with risqué men’s magazines like Playboy andPenthouse.

Xena: Warrior Princess star Lucy Lawless shared an intimate shot with her then 3-month-old son Judah to promote World Breastfeeding Week in 2002, which featured her quote, “Breastfeeding — My best role ever.”

Big Bang Theory star Mayim Bialik, who also holds a PhD in neuroscience, shared an image breastfeeding her 3-year-old son Fred on a New York City subway last year. The attachment parenting advocate wrote a thoughtful piece to accompany the intimate shot.

I have written about my now 3-year-old son Fred, and his nursing rhythms before,” Mayim wrote. “To recap: Fred nursed for a solid 12 months with no supplements, no solid foods, and not even a sip of water. He got the hang of eating solids around 18 months, but continued to nurse all day (with bottles of pumped breastmilk when I was at work), and on demand all night. A typical night involved no less than four wake-ups and sometimes six (every 2 hours on the clock for 12 hours of bed time was not unusual). This went on for almost 3 years.”

Lisa Loeb Debuts Album,Talks Breastfeeding & Birth Stories

7575LisaLoeb NoFairyTale Cover 300dpi 2 500x494 Lisa Loeb Debuts Album,Talks Breastfeeding & Birth Stories

We first fell in love with Lisa Loeb and her catchy tune, Stay (I Missed You), in the classic ’90s film Reality Bites. The singer-songwriter – now a mom-of-two with a successful eyewear line – is set to launch her seventh album, No Fairy Tale.

Lisa opens up to Celebrity Baby Scoop about her new album of “lyric-based songs” that she’s excited to share with “fans of old and new.” She also talk about her two children – daughter Lyla, 3, and son Emet, 7 months – her breastfeeding and birth stories, and coming up with her unique baby names.

CBS: Tell us about your upcoming seventh album, No Fairy Tale.

LL: “The album is a collection of lyric-based songs that are very energetic, intimate, and immediate sounding. My friend Chad Gilbert, of the band New Found Glory, proposed the idea and wanted to get to work producing the album right away. Although I usually take more time to think things through, this sounded like an exciting idea, so we jumped into the studio to write and record songs for the album.

He also invited Tegan Quin from one of my favorite current bands, Tegan and Sara, to write a couple of songs and sing on the album too. I’m so excited to share the songs with fans old and new.”

CBS: Congratulations on the arrival of your son Emet Kuli. How is he doing? Are you getting any sleep?

LL: “Emet is a really sweet baby: very smiley, personable, and I think he even has a good sense of humor. He laughs when he sees something funny and smiles and tries to reach out and speak when he sees his sister.

He was sleeping through the night and then we got into a bad habit of waking up a few times to eat. Over the last few days, we’ve been able to soothe him instead of eating, and I’m sleeping more now and so is he.”

CBS: How did you come up with the name Emet Kuli?

LL: “‘Emet’ is a Hebrew word meaning ‘truth.’ Like his sister’s name, Lyla, which means ‘night’ in Hebrew, but both sound Southern as well, and I’m from Texas. Kuli was my husband’s grandfather’s name; really a nickname given to him when he was a young man. Since he was a very fast soccer player, his friends gave him the nickname based in a Hungarian word, ‘Kulimasz’ which means ‘wheel grease.’”

CBS: Last time we chatted, you said you were hoping for a drug-free birth. Did you have a natural birth with Emet? Please share your birth story. Did it differ from Lyla’s birth?

LL: “I did not have a drug free birth. Just like Lyla, I went as long as I could and then when it was time, I went for the epidural. During both, at a certain point, the contractions were too frequent and strong to go it ‘alone.’

I honestly can’t remember how it differed from Lyla’s – they were both incredible experiences. I think since I’d done it once, it wasn’t as shocking to me how intense it was, and I was quicker to get the partial epidural when it was time for me.”

CBS: Are you breastfeeding? If so, how is that going?

LL: “I’ve been breastfeeding, and it’s going well. Like with Lyla, it definitely started off more painful, and [now] we’ve gotten into a groove. I think it’s so funny (not ‘ha ha’ funny) that people think it’s so natural, but it’s something that has to be learned and studied and practiced. I’m considering some weaning, with all the work travel I have coming up, but it’s not an overnight process.

Also, like with Lyla, I’ve had some mastitis issues, so it’s been important for me to have a lot of support from my doctors as well as a lactation specialist to help figure out how to manage my body properly. [That sounds so technical, but breastfeeding mothers will understand].”

CBS: How has Lyla been adjusting to the new baby?

LL: “Lyla loves her baby brother. She has times when she really needs her mom to herself, but overall, she’s a very great big sister.”

CBS: How do you and your hubby make time for each other amidst a busy household and demanding careers?

LL: “We try to stay organized, utilize our support systems, like our nanny and the grandparents, and communicate. We also try to look at it as a process of learning how to make the right choices as we continue to move forward. We try to have the weekly date night, but it’s not always weekly. It’s a priority, and we have to remind ourselves a lot.”

CBS: What’s up next for you?

LL: “Professionally, I’m touring with my album, continuing to work on my eyewear line, and I have an illustrated book with CD coming out in April with Sterling Publishing . It’s songs to move to, and I’ll be out promoting that album as well.

As a parent, well, it’s always something next! We’ve just started solids with Emet, and Lyla has been enjoying preschool and is starting some ballet lessons too.”
