Beyonce Breatfeeds Baby Blue Ivy in Public, Gets Thumbs Up

B4 I read this myself, I was like, so we should jump up and start dancing ehn, that Beyonce breatfed her baby.. eyes rolling.. I understand its a big deal for celebs to do this in America.. but nigbayen nko? When then, equals to?! Anyways, you gotta still give Bey thumbs up. So, the gist: Moms who are protesting and campaigning to de-stigmatize breastfeeding in public seem to have a new face supporting their cause. Beyonce was on Saturday spotted breastfeeding Blue Ivy at Sant Ambroeus, a cafe in New York’s West village. Bey was dinning with hubby Jay-z, an observer told US weekly. She was later photographed leaving the restaurant, carrying her 8-weeks-old baby.

‘The scene’ came in the midst of a national ‘Breast is Best’ breastfeeding movement propagated by the American Academy of Paediatrics (AAP) advising mothers to exclusively breastfeed for 6 months and that nursing should be considered a public health issue rather than a lifestyle choice.

Last year, Michelle Hickman, a Texas-based was humiliated for breastfeeding at a TARGET store by protesters. Beyonce’s recent ‘demonstration’ seems to be a big plus for the campaign.
