We are accustomed to knowing just about everything you can possibly know about the lives of MTV's Teen Moms. They do allow cameras to follow them 24-7, after all. Fans are privy to every argument, every brawl, every court date, and every up and down with a baby's daddy. However, fan fave Kailyn Lowry has taken her expsosure to an entirely new level.
The reality star has posted a photo of herself breastfeeding infant son Lincoln along with the caption:
Perfect! I find more and more people don't truly know what breastmilk can do. Breastmilk can saves lives yet people are so turned off by breastfeeding. Thank you Ashley for capturing this. I love it so much. ðï¿½ï¿½ï¿½ #miraclemilk #miraclemilkstroll
It's a sweet sentiment, but the image is rubbing some fans the wrong way.
This photo is just the latest controversial breastfeeding pic from a star. Just a week ago, Jason Bigg's wife Jenny Mollen tweeted a photo of her exposed breast at a fast food restaurant with their newborn. She was clearly trying to be comical, but it brings up a serious question: what is TMI when it comes to breastfeeding moms.
Sure Kailyn and Jenny have a right to take these intimate photos of what most of us consider a beautiful thing between a mother and child. But should they share it with the world? Of course, both have plenty of supporters too. Many people are proud of that pro-breastfeeding stance and are inspired by the bold photographs. So I doubt this is the last we will see of either of these moms or their boobs.
Do you think these images are TMI?
