Kailyn Lowry Has Perfect Response to Breastfeeding Haters

It's no secret that Kailyn Lowry is all about breastfeeding her baby son, Lincoln. The Teen Mom star has gotten heat from numerous people in the past about her decision to share breastfeeding photos online and the fact that she nursed her son while he was in his carseat. And now recently, Kailyn got crap again from people when she fed 10-month-old Lincoln during a book signing. Kailyn told Life & Style that, initially, people who were at the signing applauded her decision to nurse Lincoln in public and normalize breastfeeding. But apparently the next day, a whole lot of criticism was lobbed her way via, where else, the Internet.


Kailyn told the mag, "They wrote, 'Oh my God, that’s so disgusting. Why would you do that?'" (Yes, people actually wrote that about a mother nursing her baby.) But Kailyn's response to the haters? "I’m feeding my kid. Who cares?" Kail also added, "I think it’s crazy and unbelievable that anyone would be offended by breastfeeding." Agreed.

Like I said, this certainly isn't the first time Kailyn's been criticized for deciding to nurse her baby in public (or post photos online), but she seems to be on a mission to help educate others on breastfeeding, and, well, feed her baby! I mean, who wouldn't nourish their child if they were hungry -- regardless of where they were?!

One of the biggest take-aways from all of this, though, is the way Kailyn has managed to handle all of the negative comments she's been on the receiving end of. Instead of fueling the fires by going tit for tat with people, she's remained cool, calm, and collected -- and there's something to be said about that. I don't think all Teen Moms would handle things this way.

At the end of the day, nothing anyone says is going to stop Kailyn fron breastfeeding her son where and when she wants to. So, if people want to hate, let them hate. Clearly, it's no skin off her back.

What do you think of Kailyn nursing in public?
