6 Celebs Who Breastfed Over a Year & Ignored the Critics (PHOTOS)

salma hayekIn-laws, friends, and clerks at Target making you feel like a weirdo for "still" nursing that child who can walk? Screw 'em! You know what's best for your kids and you'll breastfeed them for as long as you damn well want to. I nursed my son almost up to his third birthday and I have no regrets.

Here's some extended breastfeeding celebs to keep you company. OBVIOUSLY you do not need a crew of crunchy celeb moms to validate your choices! But it's still nice to know this is something women of all walks of life do.

2Jada Pinkett Smith

Jada Pinkett Smith says she breastfed her son, Jaden, until he was 18 months old. "That baby never even saw a bottle. He went everywhere with me — premieres, award shows. I would just find a back room and hook him up."

4Alicia Silverstone

Back in March Alicia Silverstone was snapped walking and nursing then-11-month-old Bear Blue. She hasn't made breastfeeding headlines since then, but given her crunchy ethic, I think she most likely kept nursing her son past the age of 1. Maybe she's still nursing him now.
