Now, here’s another mom who is not so keen on walking the straight and narrow. She likes to do the “forbidden”, like breast feed in the public.
She did exactly that when she was breastfeeding her daughter, Wyatt, and she was shamed for it. Of course, she shared her experience and included her own opinion.
On the breastfeeding in public experience, she said, “There were many times where I didn’t bring a cover with me, and so I just did it (breastfeed) 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.”
About the glares from strangers, Kunis said “It always made my husband and I feel a little weird,” she admits. “It took us a little aback, 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.”
