Our 2012 celebrity breastfeeding round-up!

2012 saw a whole lot of celebrities talking about breastfeeding their babies and nursing in public.  We thought you’d enjoy this round-up of some of the more memorable celebrity moments!

Breastfeeding had its first ever celebrity event promoting breastfeeding and Motherlove was proud to be a sponsor!  Held in partnership with Healthy Child, Healthy World, the event at Jenna Elfman’s featured celebrity hosts Kelly Preston, Laila Ali, and Jenna Elfman.  Host Jenna Elfman said, “Education and awareness are the first steps.  No one can do everything, but everyone can do something, and every action counts.”

Beyonce says, “I lost most of my weight from breastfeeding and I encourage women to do it; It’s just so good for the baby and good for yourself.”  She nurses baby Blue in public, too.

After stating that she wouldn’t breastfeed, Snooki breastfeeds baby Lorenzo, says she loves it, and tweets that it helped her lose weight.

Pink talks about breastfeeding her 13 month old, calling in to a radio show while breastfeeding, and says she’s willing to fight over nursing in public.

Jessica Simpson says “Sometimes I worry she’s not getting enough, but it’s been an amazing experience.

Mayim Bialik, (whom we interviewed for a podcast!) responds to Time Magazine’s breastfeeding cover photo:  “I breastfeed my 3-year-old because he’s not done breastfeeding, and I’m not ready to tell him not to. ... t is still a tremendous source of discipline, and of bonding, that occurs between a mother and a child.”

Selma Blair says, “We all have nipples. I don’t care who I offend; my baby wants to eat. If I can’t get a cover over me quick enough, so be it.”

Isla Fisher says the secrets to her weight loss are breastfeeding - and Spanx!

Kourtney Kardashian says, “Even at night when I’m getting up to nurse her, I love that my house is quiet and we have moments of just me and her breastfeeding in her little pink room.”

And don’t forget Hugh Grant posing with a breastfeeding fan!
