Mylene Klass Slams Breastfeeding Trollsby Laura Driver
Myleene Klass has taken aim at the ‘babies’ who criticise mums for breastfeeding in public or sharing pictures. She said it was her body, her baby, her choice.
“Uh oh,” she wrote in an Instagram post. “Some of us mums are being chastised for ‘pumping’. No one bats an eyelid prepping their own breakfast, why choose to get flustered over my baby having his? Boobs were designed to feed. How funny that some fat, cells and glands could so deeply offend so many.”
Myleene continued: “Being a mum is hard enough. You can’t do right for doing wrong. Seemingly, everyone knows how to raise YOUR baby except you. If you feed with formula, you’re supposedly the devil, if you breastfeed, you’re offending those that don’t or can’t and worse yet, the patriarchy won’t be able to control themselves...stop titillating the men folk!”
Myleene also included a series of beautiful breastfeeding snaps with the post. “I’ve been exclusively breastfeeding Apollo for 11 months. He’s my miracle baby. It’s a part of our bond. I love, LOVE doing it for him.”
She added that seeing pictures of other breastfeeding mums helped to normalise the process for her and hoped that hers did the same.
She finished: “The cracked nipples, feeding through mastitis, engorgement, bleeding, blocked milk ducts, the fear someone’s left the freezer drawer open and ruined your milk stash, the night pumping, the leaking, the boulder sized bras cutting up your shoulders, the extra weight your body clings onto, trying not to spill a drop as you decant at work, timing your feeds so you don’t explode, watching what you eat and drink, these mums deserve support and respect, not critique.
