“Stop PUSHING girls to feel like that HAVE to breastfeed or they are not just as good of a mother if they choose not to!” the MTV star urged. “In my opinion #fedisbest and we need to support moms in whatever they choose... okay rant over.”

“I didn’t breastfeed either of my two children and not because I couldn’t but because I didn’t want to,” another person shared. “I still have two happy, healthy and thriving kids. People need to stop mum shaming and mind their own business!”
