Miranda Kerr's Beautiful Breastfeeding Photo Causing Controversy?!

Posted by Andria at 4:25 PM
You all may know Miranda Kerr as just a Victoria's Secret supermodel but as of Jan. 6th 2011, she and actor Orlando Bloom welcomed their 9lb. 12oz. baby boy, Flynn into the world. Miranda had an all natural birth, with Orlando being her ever supportive coach and husband during the labor and delivery. The proud parents decided to post on her Kora Organics site a beautiful photo of Miranda proudly breastfeeding her new baby boy. Orlando himself caught what I believe to be, a lovely moment of bonding and nurturing.

So, here I am thinking to myself, "Wow, how awesome that a huge celebrity mom like her would show the world that she's chosen to breastfeed". In a world where there's clearly no where near the amount of breastfeeding support as there should be, I wish more famous moms out there would help normalize it. I mean, let's face it, celebs definitely get tons of attention so I do think it could help. Apparently there are some not so awesome people out there who don't share my enthusiasm for Miranda's photo. As I looked through the comments on People.com, I came across this comment:

"Nothing wrong with nursing a baby, but it is an odd choice of photos to share with the public".

Odd? A new mother looking completely "love drunk" while cradling her baby to her breast is odd choice of photo to share with the public!? This comment seriously confused me but the next comment made me laugh and bothered me at the same time. Check it out:

"First of all, that is a ridiculous name. Secondly, babies WEREN'T born to be breastfed. They were born to populate the world and to make sure that continued on. Breastfeeding is so old and isn't needed anymore. It is 2011, I am sure that formula is just as good now and isn't going to hurt your babies. It doesn't make them any different whether they are breastfed or bottle fed so why not make life a little easier? Also who the hell breastfeds their child to the age of 3 years old? That is just creepy, kids shouldn't even be on a bottle at age 4. Weirdos"...

Crazy huh? And there's so many other awful comments like that out there on various sites. Now let make a few things clear. No, this is not a "formula feeders are the Devil" post. I myself had some major issues when I tried nursing my daughter so it was very short lived. My daughter did end up being formula fed for the majority of her infancy and yes I will be writing a post about that story someday soon. However, am I a huge advocate of breastfeeding? YES and comments like the ones you just read do irk me to death.

I personally think that the photo is beautiful, natural and tasteful. I mean really, is it THAT bad?! I think that Miranda being as bold as she was to share that photo with the world is a great thing. I also don't think she thought of it as "bold" when she did it. I think she thought of it as just normal. Good for her! It's just sad that so many people out there don't...

Egh, people.... drive me bananas. It is a beautiful shot. It captures everything in one moment, the love and the connection they are sharing. I hate that people are being insane and making negative comments because a person choose what she believes is best for her baby. Makes me wonder what people would say if I posted photos of me nursing my 11 month old.

I agree! That is such a beautiful picture.. & I just don't get how it can cause more controversy than her wearing her lingerie & bathing suits in ads.. It's not like it shows anymore than that, & either way it's an expression of beauty.
For such a "forward thinking" generation, people can really be prudes. Breast or bottle, you do the best you can for your child, & showing your love for them, however you decide to do so, is only to be admired. The world needs to grow up

I think that is an amazing shot! I wish I had looked that good right after having my son lol.

I breastfed my son until he was 2.5 until my supply dried up and he was diagnosed with FTT along with an eating disorder caused by sensory problems (later dx'd autistic). I don't understand people who complain about breastfeeding, they are usually the same ones complaining if you are using WIC etc to get formula!

Heya! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any problems with hackers?
My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended up losing many months of hard
work due to no backup. Do you have any methods to prevent
hackers?
