Whenever a mother breastfeed her child, she makes sure nobody sees it. Breastfeeding is very important for a newborn and a nursing mother. Even, mothers of new generation find it hard to break the stigma associated to lactation and providing nourishment to her child in a safe manner. The issue has been addressed by many Bollywood stars. So, let's know what Hollywood women have to say about it:
Soha Ali Khan is the mother of a little daughter Inaya Naumi Kemmu and she shared her story, "As a working parent, I found myself having to pump in the oddest of places. I have pumped in an airplane bathroom. When the seatbelt signs came on, I had to hurriedly dismantle everything, spilling lots of very precious breast milk along the way. When I came out and made it back to my seat, the air hostess asked me if I was doing my make-up inside. I was like, 'Uh...no.'"
Lisa Haydon on the occasion of World breastfeeding wrote, "'ve gotten loads of posts asking about life after having my son... esp to do with weight and fitness. Seeing as it's World Breastfeeding Week- time to give some credit where credit is due. Breastfeeding has played such a big part in getting back into shape after giving birth to my baby. Breastfeeding has been challenging+time consuming (literally hours spent every day trying to stimulate milk supply) but it's such a beautiful way to bond and connect with your child plus all the nutritional benefits that your child gets from your milk. "
Also, the mother of two Mira Rajput said, "I have spoken about the importance of feeding the baby in the past too. I was extremely religious with Misha and I am going to do the same with my newborn. It is the greatest gift you can give your baby."
While Neha Dhupia took to Twitter to post: "It’s been 8 months since I embarked on this rollercoaster and there is no better time than now to talk about how truly grateful I am for all the joy that our little one has brought into our lives...motherhood like all else hasn’t been easy... the sleepless nights, the feeling like a food source, the blues are all a part of this wonderful package. It's amazing how the mommy brain can do so many things at the same time and works on autopilot ...like resting the baby’s head just right, knowing when she is done with her feed and of course becoming the burping expert of the world. I breastfed Mehr exclusively for 6 months and still continue to do so ... It truly made me realise the value of a wonderful support system that I have and sometimes the lack of it and also the lack of facilities. Like once I was on a plane and had to feed her, and I literally had to take her to the washroom and was only hoping that the seat belt sign does not come on before she is done ...of course, I came out n apologised for using the washroom for so long.."
