Mila Kunis reveals she felt shamed for breastfeeding in public

The actress has one simple message for anyone who has a problem with mums breastfeeding in public: "Don't look".

Soon-to-be mum-of-two Mila Kunis has confessed to feeling publicly shamed by passersby while breastfeeding her now 21-month-old daughter Wyatt, she reveals in a new interview.
Speaking candidly to Vanity Fair, the expectant mama revealed her thoughts on nursing in public.
“I support every woman’s choice in what she wants to do and whatever makes them happy, but for me, I did nurse my child and I literally breastfed everywhere,” the 32-year-old began.
“There were many times where I didn’t bring a cover with me, and so I just did it in a restaurant, in the subway, in the park, at airports and in planes.”
“Why did I do it in public? Because I had to feed my child. She’s hungry. I need to feed her whether it’s out of a bottle or out of my boob, no matter where I was,” she concluded, making no apologies.

The Bad Moms actress went on to explain how the judgemental stares made her and her high-profile hubby feel “a little weird”.
“It took us a little back because people actually looked at us in a shameful [way], and we were like, ‘Oh my God,’ because it’s so not a sexual act.”
“It didn’t matter to me what other people thought. If it’s not for you, don’t look.”

Mila isn’t the only Hollywood mum challenging nursing rights.
Earlier this year, Chrissy Teigen appeared alongside Fergie and Kim Kardashian in the M.I.L.F.$. music video, breastfeeding her newborn daughter Luna Simone.
Recalling the spontaneous moment the model mum decided to nurse her sweet bub on set, John Legend’s wife quipped, “They closed down the set [because] Luna was so new.”
Chrissy was more than proud to show the beauty of nursing in the clip that has since been watched over 50 million times.
“She was maybe four weeks old. They turned off the air. They cleared people out. And it was her natural lunch time anyway.”
“It was [like], ‘[Luna’s] here, and it’s “MILF Money” — I would love to capture this moment with her,’” she says.
“I think it’s beautiful.”
