One of the conveniences of breastfeeding is you can feed your child whenever he gets hungry — and you don't need to bring bottles and formula milk. It should also follow that moms can feed their child anywhere, but breastfeeding moms know finding a private place to do so can be difficult in our country.
Kylie Padilla illustrated it today when she shared on Instagram a photo of her nursing her 1-year-old son Alas Joaquin in a public restroom.
"No plans on stopping anytime soon," the 25-year-old actress wrote as a caption with the hashtag #breastfeedingmama. She first posted it on Instagram Stories with the statement, "When he wants it, he gets it," referring to nursing her son on when needed.
A lot of her followers reacted positively to her post, lauding the celebrity mom for still choosing to continue to breastfeed her son for more than a year now. Fellow nursing mamas also empathized with Kylie's situation of having to nurse her baby in a bathroom. They know all too well that many public places in the country still lack adequate breastfeeding-friendly stations.
There were a few disapproving comments because of the photo itself and the fact that Alas can already walk. Many of her followers, though, have shot down those comments, saying breastfeeding is and should be normal.
