Jada just became my favorite breastfeeding celebrity. Not a fan of the kids music but hey, its all good. Recently she was quoted as saying this about nursing:
“When I’m with my kids I’m creating but I’m still a mom. I don’t wear two different hats. My kids have always been on the set with me. I was breastfeeding on set. None of my kids would take a bottle so they could not leave my side for a very long time.”
Sounds a little like her own very version of what some are calling "attachment parenting" to me. I love it.
And back when she was pregnant with Willow she was also outspoken about nursing. When asked how long she nursed Jaden she said this:
"A good 18 months. That baby never even saw a bottle. He went everywhere with me — premieres, award shows. I would just find a back room and hook him up."
Yes it would have been nice if she didn't have to find a "back room" and promoted nursing in public but hey, I'm still impresed! Not only is she a beautiful black woman with a great career and powerhouse family, she nursed into toddlerhood and was able to manage career and motherhood with exclusive breastfeeding. Go head mama! I'm a fan!
