Moms mad at model's breastfeeding remarks

It's the same old story.  Moms mad at other moms for telling them how to raise their children.

Model Gisele Bundchen is having to backtrack to explain her words:

"Are you going to give chemical food to your child when they are so little?"

She also said that she believed there should be a law that all mothers should have to breastfeed for six months.

I don't see what the big problem is.  Bundchen is just expressing her feelings.  It's a shame that some mothers take this as an insult if they choose not to breastfeed.

Yes, she's extremely wealthy and can afford to take time off of work and breastfeed her baby.  True, she probably wasn't thinking about moms who can't afford that luxury.  But it's just her opinion. 

Why do we have such a hard time letting women speak their minds?

Who cares what Bundchen says?

We as mothers should not care so much what a supermodel expresses.  We should focus on doing what is right for our own families.
