It’s silly this is even up for discussion, but Gisele Bundchen has upset a whole bunch of people with an Instagram photo of her breastfeeding one-year-old Vivian. The supermodel isn’t just breastfeeding, though; she’s doing it while having her hair and nails done by a glam squad. She shared the photo with the caption, “What would I do without this beauty squad after the 15 hours flying and only 3 hours of sleep #multitasking #gettingready.” Most people looked at the photo and saw a mom just being a mom but others got angry, saying she should breastfeed in private (and that Vivian is too old to be breastfed, anyway).
We don’t know who took this photo of Gisele, but we saw good job. Breastfeeding is great if you can do it and experts do recommend you breastfeed your baby through the first year if you can. Besides, the photo shows her being normal and changes the way we see celebrities. It’s easy to assume that when you have that much money you just pay people to deal with the messy parts of being a parent, but Gisele shows us she’s not that type.
Honestly, Gisele kinda looks like she’s living the life. Who wouldn’t want to be able to have special mommy time with your baby and then be able to get out of your chair looking fabulous? The people that say what she’s doing is unrealistic and makes the rest of us feel bad forget that looking a certain way is part of her job. If she had a different job, maybe the photo would show her breastfeeding little Vivian while she was, say, typing.
