Selma Blair breastfed her kid in a very public place: The Grove in Los Angeles. The Grove is a large outdoors Disney-esque shopping center. There’s even a trolley, on which Ms. Blair took her breastfeeding break.
There are two arguments that are inevitably going to come out of this:
— Should women breastfeed in public?
— Is her son too old to be breastfed? (He’s 2.)
I think it’s no one’s business and I think women should breastfeed their kids wherever they damn well please, because it’s not about showing boob, it’s about feeding their hungry kid. (Shanna Moakler has a completely different view, calling breastfeeding “incestual.”)
So even though it’s no one’s business and it’s her choice, you know people are going to debate this anyway, so let’s just have it out.
What are your thoughts on breastfeeding in public? And at what point is a kid too old to be breastfed?
