Everyone has an opinion about breastfeeding, don’t they? If you don’t do, you’re feeding your kid poison, if you do do it, then you’re rubbing it in the faces of those mothers who can’t, or if you say "breast is best," you’re taking away a mom’s right to choose how to feed her baby, blah blah blah.
Throw a beautiful young reality star and alcohol into the mix and you KNOW someone’s going to have something to say about it. So when Kailyn Lowry went out partying last weekend while leaving her breastfed 4-month-old son at home, the Judgey McJudgersons came out in droves to question her parenting.
Kail didn’t miss a beat in defending her decision to imbibe in honor of her birthday.
If you're on my case for drinking to celebrate my birthday PLEASE tell me since you've had kids you've NEVER gotten a babysitter to go out.— Kail Lowry-Marroquin (@KailLowry) March 9, 2014
Oh my gosh, people need to chillax in a major way. I was unaware that having babies meant they were shackled to your boobs for first year or two of their lives.
Side note: Actually my first one was because she refused the bottle and I couldn't leave her for more than two or three hours at a time for over six months, but that's a personal problem and I would've killed for a night out like Kail.
Anyway. Apparently the birthday girl not only hired a sitter, but pumped milk beforehand so baby Lincoln could eat and not even have to supplement formula (not that there's anything wrong with that of course).
Furthermore, it seems as though Kail pumped and dumped the day after the party, so she could get everything out of her system before resuming her milk-machine duties.
Sounds like an awesome mom to me.
Did you ever drink alcohol while you were breastfeeding?
