Gisele Bündchen Reacts To Controversial Breastfeeding Comment

Gisele Bündchen recently made headlines with a controversial statement about making breastfeeding mandatory for all new moms: “I think there should be a worldwide law, in my opinion, that mothers should breastfeed their babies for six months,” the model mom said in an interview with Harper’s Bazaar.

In a new statement released on her blog, Gisele clarifies her thoughts about breastfeeding and the impact caused by her comment:

My intention in making a comment about the importance of breastfeeding has nothing to do with the law. It comes from my passion and beliefs about children. Becoming a new mom has brought a lot of questions, I feel like I am in a constant search for answers on what might be the best for my child. It’s unfortunate that in an interview sometimes things can seem so black and white. I am sure if I would just be sitting talking about my experiences with other mothers, we would just be sharing opinions. I understand that everyone has their own experience and opinions and I am not here to judge. I believe that bringing a life into this world is the single most important thing a person can undertake and it can also be the most challenging. I think as mothers we are all just trying our best.”

What do you think about Gisele’s latest comments?

The word “formula” says it all. Sounds like something out of a laboratory.

Just like you all have strong opinions on the matter, Gisele (a model) is not allowed to? sounds double standard to me. I checked her blog and many breastfeeding advocates and new moms, healthcare professionals who feel the same way (i know plenty myself) are praising her for speaking up on the issue. So while she may have lost a few, she is gaining more supporters by the second. particularly well educated mothers. Maybe the jealous tween girls are backing off, but that’s fine. who needs their support? lol

My goodness me… people really need to find something to do. I personally agree with her that if it’s physically possible to breastfeed without harming you or the baby, then you absolutely should do it. But if you DON’T agree with her (or me), why on earth would you waste time getting angry? Just seems silly to me. You do what’s right for you- if you don’t want to breastfeed, DON’T. Stop worrying about whether celebrities- who don’t know you- are judging you or people like you. There’s no reason to call her names or judge her, she was just… Read more »

Im your so called 1% who cant breast feed for medical reasons. Im on meds for seizures and traces of the meds are in my breastmilk. Everyday i feel guilty and im sure there are alot of other people who feel the same who can not breast feed. I also know alot of people who werent breastfeed and they grew up healthy and very smart.

You yourself just admitted that you DO produce breastmilk, therefore you are not in my “so called 1%” are you?

And you do have options. Many anti-seizure medications are considered safe to use while breastfeeding, or you could go the route that I mentioned in my previous post. There is ALWAYS an option.

You are sooooo infuriating!!! IT IS A MOTHER’S choice I was going to let this go but to suggest she go through a medication change that could have serious implications for her and the baby. Let her and the rest of the women make thier own choices. It is really NONE of your business what they choose to do with their family. That goes for Gisele too. American society is NOTHING like other societies of the world whatever choice we decided to make is OUR choice and you have got to get that through your head! Let us worry about… Read more »

Being a mother comes with responsibilities. One of them is providing your child with the milk your body has been made to produce for that very reason. If you are physically unable (which is a very low % of women), that’s okay. But other than that I see no valid reason why a mother should withhold that milk from her child. Its not about the mother all the time- you are responsible for another life and you should take that responsibility very seriously. If you are not willing or ready to make sacrifices, don’t become a mother. Its great that… Read more »

WOW Most celebrities didn’t even graduate from high school, whereas a lot of models choose to continue their education. And celebrities are incredibly fake – their so-called personalities are programmed into them by their PR people, their fashions are dictated by stylists, every thing they do and say is staged. Get real! If this were Angelina Jolie everyone would be oohing and ahhing at this very instant.

Back in the 90s (when Supermodels were huge) There was a supermodel backlash when the women and their personailities became bigger than the clothes they were trying to sell, and it became TOO much. This all leads me to believe that Gisele really is the last famous,important model. Just as Naomi,Claudia,Christy have all stated. Regular models out there (even Victorias Secret) ones are lucky to even get 1 mention on 1 measly gossip website after they did or said something ridiculously stupid.

For the MILLIONTH time, when someone says something like this they are speaking of the general population (its impossible to follow every statement up with every situation that is an exception). If you have valid reasons for why you couldn’t breast-feed your child, you shouldn’t be offended by this statement. If you can’t, you can’t. I think the point is that, generally speaking, if a woman is able to breast-feed her child, she should because that is the best option. And its just Gisele’s opinion, that’s all! Nobody’s going to march into congress proposing this “law” anytime soon.

In response to the millionth time comment women are so fired up about this because they ARE made to feel wrong or even inadequate about the choices they have to make concerning THEIR children. I just shared an experience so that the impact of this type of all or nothing attitude toward breast feeding can be seen from another point of view. Women are upset by this because of the implications that a statement like this makes.

Seriously?, you are the reason so many women are made to feel that they are less of a mother because they did not breast feed. Even though a woman may physically be able to breast feed sometimes circumstances get in the way. Maybe they are on anti depressants, or any other medication that they cannot give their child? Maybe they are poor and cannot afford a wet nurse ( will you go into a poor, high crime area to be a wet nurse for free?) or live in an area where there are not breast milk banks available?

It’s a shame American women aren’t given 6 months to a year of paid maternity leave in order to breast feed. Why do you think breast feeding is more popular in Europe than the U.S.?

Maybe American women are scowling because they wish they had the nice, long, paid maternity leave policies that other countries grant new mothers. Instead, we have FMLA which is only 12 weeks and is unpaid. I would love to stay home with my son for 6 months to a year and breast feed him, but I can’t afford to loose my job if I hope to eat, pay my mortgage, and heat my house. If people in this country really cared about breast feeding, they’d work on getting the draconian maternity leave laws in this country changed.

Very well said. In some cases, women are only allowed 6 weeks unpaid. I have friends in family in England who are appalled over this when they get so much paid time off. Even the dads get paid time off after the birth of a baby. The system here in America is a joke lol

Actually a lot of people care otherwise she wouldn’t be doing interviews. Also elimination communication is not the baby wiping and flushing the toilet, its about the parents reading the signs a baby gives before they go.

I actually agree with Gisele. What I love most are the people who say that there’s no proof that breast milk is best for baby.

Say what you will about breastfeeding but the simple fact is that the people who CAN do it but DON’T do it, simply don’t do it for their own selfish reasons.

There is such a thing as pumping milk, so please stop the sarcasm. Mothers who are perfectly capable (physically and mentally healthy) of breastfeeding, but CHOOSE to bottlefeed for whatever lame reason is insanity.

what do you suggest mothers who have had double mastectomies do or mothers who have children born with clef palate do? Some women just don’t produce milk it happens they aren’t lazy or don’t want to and so what if women do formula feed their children. They have every right to and they should be made to feel guilty about their choice.

She didn’t just come out as pro-breast feeding. If she’d done that, then most would have agreed with her. She stated that there should be law forcing everyone to live the way she lives and do what she does. There’s a difference between the two. Stumping for something you believe in is one thing. Forcing everyone else to believe the same thing under penalty of jail time is something completely different.

giving a baby a bottle is 10x easier and more convenient for the mom, sure…but is it for the baby…? its a quick fix generally speaking.

Her garbage disposal comment was dead on. Many women do eat more than they should during pregnancy because they see it as an excuse to gain weight without being judged for it. I don’t remember Gisele saying that that applies to every mother except her, she said “some” women. Therefore, if you did eat healthy during the pregnancy you should not be offended. Or do you advocate that women should eat excessively during pregnancy?
