The paparazzi has scored parenting gold. They took pictures of Maggie Gyllenhaal (I have to look up her last name every single time I type it) nursing her baby in public. I suppose a lot of your reaction is going to be based in how you feel about public breastfeeding. I am all for it. I don’t think I ever nursed in public, but it was mostly because I had twins and I was too chicken shit to take them anywhere public for very long when they were young.
Celebrity Baby Blog is reporting that most of the feedback they have been hearing about Gyllenhaal nursing her daughter in public has been positive. Either they have a very specific audience, or people are getting more tolerant in general. Don’t lynch me, but it also helps that breastfeeding is very in style right now. I know, I know, breast is best, but it wasn’t always so acceptable. I know when my Mom was nursing us it wasn’t nearly as common.
Here is the real question. How uncool is it of the paparazzi to take a picture of Maggie’s exposed boob? Or is that okay because she was in public and she is a public figure? I don’t know.
Is it rude that I am posting it here or is it beautiful and natural?
