‘So happy I made it home for this’: Myleene Klass shares sweet breastfeeding picture with son Apollo, 12 months, following long day at work
Myleene Klass has been doing her bit to normalise breastfeeding and shared another picture of herself feeding son Apollo on Instagram on Monday.
Still wearing the pretty maxi dress she had worn to work earlier, Myleene, 42, looked beautiful as she sat with her child, who has just turned one.
Sharing the snap, Myleene wrote: ‘After a long day at work, so happy I made it home for the night feed. #normalisebreastfeeding.’
‘So happy I made it home for the night feed’: Myleene Klass shared a sweet breastfeeding picture with son Apollo, 1, on Instagram following a long day at work on Monday
Her pride and joy: Myleene calls Apollo her little ‘miracle baby’
Back in July, the mother-of-three defended her decision to share pictures of herself feeding her son.
She said: ‘Uh oh. Some of us mums are being chastised for pumping. No one bats an eyelid prepping their own breakfast, why choose to get flustered over my baby having his? Boobs were designed to feed.
‘How funny that some fat, cells and glands could so deeply offend so many. Being a mum is hard enough. You can’t do right for doing wrong. Seemingly, everyone knows how to raise YOUR baby except you.
Proud: Myleene has defended her choice to post pictures of herself breastfeeding and revealed she felt ‘chastised’ by mum-shamers
Speaking out: The mother-of-three, 42, took to Instagram last month to air her feelings on breastfeeding in public
‘If you feed with formula, you’re supposedly the devil, if you breastfeed, you’re offending those that don’t or can’t and worse yet, the patriarchy won’t be able to control themselves…stop titillating the men folk!’
She continued: ‘My body, my baby, my choice. I’ve been exclusively breastfeeding Apollo for 11 months. He’s my miracle baby. It’s a part of our bond. I love, LOVE doing it for him.
‘The photos of other women breastfeeding, pumping, normalise things for me and if mine, in turn, do the same for other mothers who feel embarrassed, judged or that they should need to stifle their baby under a Muslin lest they offend some wallflower with their life giving, breastfeeding skills, I’ll continue posting.’
Normal: The Smooth Radio presenter said that photos of breastfeeding ‘normalises’ the process for other mothers, who may feel ’embarrassed’ or ‘judged’
Alongside the snaps, she wrote: ‘Uh oh. Some of us mums are being chastised for pumping. No one bats an eyelid prepping their own breakfast, why choose to get flustered over my baby having his? Boobs were designed to feed’
Finalising her point by going into detail about the struggles new mums face, she said: ‘The cracked nipples, feeding through mastitis, engorgement, bleeding, blocked milk ducts, the fear someone’s left the freezer drawer open and ruined your milk stash, the night pumping…
‘The leaking, the boulder sized bras cutting up your shoulders, the extra weight your body clings onto, trying not to spill a drop as you decant at work, timing your feeds so you don’t explode, watching what you eat and drink, these mums deserve support and respect, not critique. What a bunch of babies.’
Early this year, Myleene declared she was on a mission to ‘normalise’ breastfeeding and said she’s not trying to ‘race her body back’ after putting on five stone in pregnancy weight.
She continued: ‘How funny that some fat, cells and glands could so deeply offend so many. Being a mum is hard enough. You can’t do right for doing wrong. Seemingly, everyone knows how to raise YOUR baby except you’
