Jaime King posted a photo of herself breastfeeding her 8-month old son, James Knight, to let the the anti-public nursing crusaders that they’re ridiculous. The photo, which features a cameo by an adorable and sleepy-looking pup in the background, is of Jaime lying in bed just doin’ what some mothers do. Some, because Jaime and I agree that whatever floats your parenting boat is all good, as long as it makes everyone happy and healthy.
That’s the point, get it?! Just employ whichever feeding option makes you and your child(ren) comfortable, whether its breastfeeding your hungry baby in the middle of a shopping mall or popping a bottle in there instead. That’s all there is to it, and we didn’t even need to wait until Farrah Abraham’s Christian parenting book came out to come to that conclusion! Because neither option is as big a deal as the universe likes to make it, considering the fact that this photo has been placed onto the internet by Jaime and hasn’t caused even one inferno or stampede.
The photo was posted with the following caption:
“#JamesKnight is now 8 months old! These are the moments a mother lives for. Breastfeeding should not be taboo- and bottle feeding should not be judged- it’s ALL fun for the whole family:)”
I couldn’t agree more. Plus, little James doesn’t give a damn about our society’s nudity complex and neither does her dog, who actually could not care less. Instagram almost does, but they mostly have a vendetta against female nipples, so she’s in the clear. Because at the end of the day (and technically at the beginning and middle, too) they’re just boobs, of which nearly half of the world’s population are the owners.
Now, my real issue here is how little pillow action that puppy is getting! It’s barely enough surface area to rest its weary head after a long day at the office. Okay, like, maybe even that highly important issue comes second to Jaime’s message that everyone needs to calm the hell down about baby-feeding methods. Possibly.
