RANT: The benefits of breastfeeding are well known-- both for newborns and their mothers. But supermodel Gisele Bunchen created such a stir, saying it should be a worldwide law that new mothers nurse for at least six months. What do you think? We could air your thoughts at 10:00 tonight!
There's no shortage of celebrity moms stirring up controversy over breastfeeding - from Salma Hayek giving her milk to an african orphan..."it's amazing he's really looking at me..." To Angela Jolie baring it all on the cover of W magazine.
But no one has been more 'in your face' about the benefits of breastfeeding than supermodel Gisele Bundchen.
In next month's issue of UK Harper's Bazaar - the new mother and wife of NFL star Tom Brady says, "some people here 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
mother's should breastfeed their babies for six months."
