Kailyn Lowry’s Controversial Comments About Breastfeeding Make Perfect Sense

kail lowry teen momEver since she gave birth to her second son, LincolnKailyn Lowry has been determined to share her breastfeeding story with her fans. Whether she's posting some seemingly controversial pictures while she feeding her son, or fighting the good fight on behalf of all nursing moms, she's on a mission to bring awareness to breastfeeding.

"It’s very important to me and I think a lot of people are a little uneducated about it," the Teen Mom 2 star told The Stir in an exclusive interview. "I certainly was when I had Isaac, so I want to spread the word and explain to girls that there’s more to breastfeeding that I think people really know or understand."

But the woman's not stopping there. She's obviously endured her fair share of flack and backlash for posting her breastfeeding photos (seriously, some fans were really not happy with the snapshots), but she's intent on continuing to share the message. If you're looking for an apology, you won't find one here.

Like I’ve said to many people, if my baby’s hungry then I’m going to feed my baby whether other people like it or not. So at the end of the day, the negative comments don’t really matter.

YOU GO GIRLFRIEND! She's definitely not backing down. And for good reason. The plan is simple: do what you need to do to be a good mom. Forget what everyone else has to say. The easygoing attitude is best -- carry on with what is best for the baby and ignore the rest.

After all, "that’s what women were made to do," she adds. "Breasts were made to feed our babies, so I don’t see why it’s controversial."

Unfortunately, breastfeeding continues to be a highly talked about issue. And breastfeeding in public? Good luck trying to get everyone to agree to it. But for Kailyn, and for all other moms, the best plan is just to carry on with the goal. Pay no mind to the judgy stares or the snarky comments. Baby has to eat, right?

Do you agree with Kailyn's comments on breastfeeding?

The prudes can go jump off a cliff. Not a single one of them will freak out about bikinis or magazine covers. It's just when the word "women's rights" come up that people feel like they are being told what to do so they want to throw tantrums

Breast or bottle I don't care, if your kids hungry FEED THEM. F-ck what everyone else thinks, it's not their kid

If you don't like it, don't look. It seems simple. I'm not sure if I would do it in public, but that's my hangup and it's my business. I respect the choices of other women to do whatever is best for them.

If she wants to help spread the word and help people understand breast feeding, that's fine. As long as they want to know. Not all! But a lot of breast feeding women are so in your face, and have that "I think I'm better than you if you don't do what I do, and if you do do what I do I do it better" mentality. In my opinion no one needs to help spread the word about any type of feeding because it should not matter. Wait until someone even chooses how to feed their child, then ask if they want advice or help if they chose what you want to talk about. And I think a lot of people would change the way some people dress these days. I will never understand why someones shorts need to be shorter than your ass hole but it's gross and you look trashy.

Controversy aside, she's not doing much. Oh I'm totally gonna change how I feed my kids on the advice on a teenage mother who's sole job is living off publicity. Yup. That's my role model right there.

No Einyn, but she is a role model to some younger women and teenagers, and if she helps even one of them see that breastfeeding is normal and it encourages her to try it, then Kailyn has been successful.

I'm really tired of this even being considered a controversey. Hundreds of years ago women didn't cover up or worry about what people thought of breastfeeding because that was the only way they could feed their babies. The only reason people are being dumbasses and making it an issue now is because we live in a hugely pornographic and demeaning generation.

I'm so sick of this topic getting shoved down our throats.
