Alyssa Milano wants to know why some people find her breastfeeding photos offensive. So do we!
Tweeting in support of fellow mama Kim Kardashian's internet-breaking magazine cover, Milano raised an important question:
Wait! I don't get it. No disrespect to Kim but... people are offended by my breastfeeding selfies & are fine with her (amazing) booty cover?

We've never quite understood why so many people seem to be aghast at the site of a mom nursing, while they're A-okay with super-sexy images of women elsewhere. Here at Fit Pregnancy, we think breastfeeding in public is beautiful and support a mom's right to feed her baby whenever—and wherever. And it's not only because when breastfeeding is possible, it's the healthiest option for baby. (Most doctors will back us up here—see the AAP, CDC , ACOG and March of Dimes for starters.) It's also because feeding a baby is the biological function that breasts serve, people!
Alyssa, we were already big fans of your healthy attitudes on being a mama: Thank you for sharing this latest one—and for standing up for nursing moms everywhere!
