Chrissy Teigen gets real about the challenges she faced breastfeeding. Was Chrissy Teigen mom-shamed about breastfeeding? Kind of. People reports on the details.
Chrissy Teigen opens up about breastfeeding struggles.
In a series of Tweets, Chrissy Teigen details experiences of “shame” and “guilt” she feels as a mom. Seemingly, this is because her body struggled to produce enough milk, reports People. Chrissy Teigen and John Legend share three children. Luna Simone, 4 1/2, and Miles Theodore, 2. Sadly, their third child passed away due to complications during Teigen’s pregnancy.
Motivationally, Teigen shares that she doesn’t know why “this is [her] crusade now.” However, it is inspirational to see her so open about a difficult topic so soon after the loss of Jack. She goes on to tweet, “I just remember the sadness I felt and I want you to know you are doing it right if your baby is fed, mama.”
Other celebrities share their breastfeeding experiences.
Opening up about breastfeeding woes seems to be a growing trend among celebrity mothers. Coincidentally, Nikki Bella of Total Bellas recently shares how difficult it was to breastfeed her son for the first couple of months. This is useful information for any mother wanting to know all the details about breastfeeding.
Jenna Dewan even retweets Teigen to share her experience with breastfeeding. She commends Teigen and says her thread is great for mothers. Additionally, Dewan gives a personal example. “I too had trouble producing milk [the] second time around with Callum and wasted too much time feeling unnecessary anxiety and guilt about it,” pens the actress/dancer.

The cookbook author favors the “fed is best” school of thought, but doesn’t discount “breast is best” either.
While it may seem like Teigen is a staunch supporter of the “fed is best” school of thought, that’s not the case. Ultimately, through the series of tweets, it seems that Tiegen supports a mother’s decision to do what is best for her child. However, in her experience, it seems that she wishes normalizing formula is as mainstream as normalizing breastfeeding.
Teigen goes on to tweet about the emphasis on “breast is best” makes a new mom anxious. Ultimately, it appears that Teigen wants to use her platform to educate everyone about alternatives to the current baby feeding narrative.
The Twitter thread goes on a tangent.
It is probably not hard to imagine a Twitter thread about breastfeeding going on a tangent. This is absolutely what happens on this thread. Luckily, this tangent is all too relatable. One fan responds, “I say we… try to normalize not giving a f— about what other people want to do with their lives as long as it’s not hurting anyone else.” Insert collective sigh from the Twitterverse here. If it seems this thread can’t get any better, Chrissy Teigen responds. “Truly, IN EVERY ASPECT. ‘normalize minding your f—ing business as long as it is not hurting anyone else’ needs to be a t-shirt lol.”
