17 Celebrity Breastfeeding Confessions That Turned Heads

17 Celebrity Breastfeeding Confessions That Turned Heads

Kristin Cavallari and Katie Lowes

It's hard to believe that in 2019, topics surrounding breastfeeding are still taboo, but it's true -- and that's something that plenty of celebrity moms have had to deal with, too. Still, the "controversy" surrounding nursing hasn't stopped many of them from sharing some breastfeeding confessions and photos of their own that, of course, turn heads. Like any part of motherhood, there's a lot of potential for things to go wrong, and even when things go right, breastfeeding and pumping are two areas in the parenting arena where the tales can take a turn for the ... unexpected.

Obviously, anytime a mom -- whether she's a celebrity or not -- opens up about breastfeeding in any capacity, we want to stand up and cheer, because that's one more step closer to normalizing something in our society that should have been normalized a very long time ago. But there are some stories that celebrities have shared that have definitely gone against the norm. Some are so bizarre that they've raised an eyebrow or two ... even if they are, in their own ways, a little bit relatable.

But just because the details are a little WTF, that doesn't mean we don't want to hear about them. Celebrities have their own breastfeeding stories to share that border on the outrageous side, and if nothing else, they're getting the word out at the very least that even though it's not always pretty, it's just another natural part of life.

Here are some of the most breastfeeding confessions from celebrity moms that turned a few heads and are actually kinda relatable if we're being honest. If anything, these confessions are quite refreshing as we're guilty of doing the same -- so it's good to be among a few mamas that will do what's necessary, because the struggle is too real.

  • 'Unclogging' Milk Ducts


    On an episode of Very Cavallari, Kristin Cavallari admitted that husband  Jay Cutler had to help her out when her milk ducts were "major clogged." 

    "Jay had to get them out for me," Kristin said in the clip. "Sucking harder than he's ever sucked." 

    Later, Kristin said that Jay saved her life, so while it's unconventional, hey, he got the job done!

  • 'Nursing' the Husband


    Kristin Cavallari isn't the only one whose husband had to rise to the occasion! In fact, she's not even the only one named Kristin.

    In an episode of her #Momsplaining YouTube show, Kristen Bell shared when she had mastitis, husband Dax Shepard had to help her out, too, and he totally stepped up to the plate. Their baby wasn't nursing anymore, so it was up to him to get it done. 

    "So I said to my husband, 'I really need you to suck this out. We could talk about it, we could be weird about it, or you could just go ahead and nurse," she revealed. "He pulled it out. He had a cup next to him. He was pulling out and spitting into this cup, and I've never been more in love."
