They’re nothing like seeing a 6 foot gazelle, aka, Gisele Bundchen, backpedal ungainly. The supermodel shot her mouth off in an interview with Harpers Bazaar, specifically on the topic of breastfeeding. Because she gave birth to her baby in a bath tub, Gisele is now the spokesmommy for all topics related to baby goodness.
Ms Bundchen stated her opinion to the mag: “Some people here (in the US) think they don’t have to breastfeed, and I think ‘Are you going to give chemical food to your child when they are so little?’ I think there should be a worldwide law, in my opinion, that mothers should breastfeed their babies for six months.”
Hence, Backtrack Bundchen took to her blog to give out this message of peace, love and dont-hate-me! Her blog has a nice big picture of her meditating, too. (Try not to zzzz):
My intention in making a comment about the importance of breastfeeding has nothing to do with the law. It comes from my passion and beliefs about children. Becoming a new mom has brought a lot of questions, I feel like I am in a constant search for answers on what might be the best for my child. ItÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s unfortunate that in an interview sometimes things can seem so black and white. I am sure if I would just be sitting talking about my experiences with other mothers, we would just be sharing opinions. I understand that everyone has their own experience and opinions and I am not here to judge. I believe that bringing a life into this world is the single most important thing a person can undertake and it can also be the most challenging. I think as mothers we are all just trying our best.
Okay, so that last bit was ours.
