Kylie's Breastfeeding Photo Is Proof We Need More Nursing StationsKylie's breastfeeding photo and the comments it received make it clear Filipinos need to #NormalizeBreastfeeding.by Rachel Perez .
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.ADVERTISEMENT - CONTINUE READING BELOWCONTINUE READING BELOWRecommended VideosADVERTISEMENT - CONTINUE READING BELOW
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.ADVERTISEMENT - CONTINUE READING BELOW

SmartParenting.com.ph reached out to Kylie's management for a statement. "Kylie was looking for a breastfeeding station, but Alas was hungry and couldn't wait any longer," a spokesperson replied via Facebook Messenger. He also pointed out that the actress was in a well-maintained bathroom for persons with disability (PWD).
Her management also added there was a breastfeeding station in the mall, but Kylie said it was too far from where she and Alas were at the time he needed to feed. Kylie's rep added that the mom-and-son duo was in and out of the bathroom stall for approximately 10 minutes, a quick feed to help put Alas to sleep.ADVERTISEMENT - CONTINUE READING BELOW
As for those who reacted negatively to her photo, Kylie's spokesperson said Kylie was "letting them be." Anyone who knows Kylie, he added, know that Kylie always keeps Alas' needs first.
