Have you seen Pink’s latest NIP photo? She is nursing her toddler in a restaurant in Paris. Her hubby, Carey Hart, put it up on his Instagram page this evening with the comment, “hartluck @pink Willz and i out to dinner in Paris. Looks like willow is having the best meal!” Of course, as a tandem breastfeeding mother of two toddlers, I fully appreciate the benefits of breast milk and love breastfeeding humor.
I took the liberty to turn it into a poster because today was one of those days where I was tired of people spouting off their negative subjective opinions about breastfeeding moms. These people shoot their mouths off, type in all caps, or call the cops on breastfeeding moms without doing any of the research on their state laws that allow nursing in public, the actual benefits of supporting breastfeeding in our culture, or the benefits of breastfeeding in general. They think a nursing mother is being an exhibitionist and that feeding a toddler is twisted and will hurt the child. I had someone tell me a photo of me and my daughter nursing was the creepiest thing they ever saw. I dare anyone to ask Pink to cover up, move, or to stop nursing and leave. I double dare them to tell her nursing her toddler is sick.
What would Pink do? She said she would hand the baby off and fight a breastfeeding nay-sayer. Oh yea.
Watch Pink talk about it on the Alan Carr show back in September. Fast forward to the four minute mark if you’re short on time.
That’s right! It is normal and natural. Willow, who will be 18 month old on Dec 2nd, is one lucky baby to have such a strong mama and a father that fully supports her right to nurse and is proud to share it with the world.
Get ‘em, Pink! Thank you for just doing what works for you and your baby and helping normalize breastfeeding in the process.
