Some celebrity moms’ have been taking some heat lately for some unconventional habits (Alicia Silverstone feeds her son from her own mouth and January Jones fessed up to eating her own placenta — in capsule form). Celebrity mom of two Mayim Bialik — who has taken heat herselfc for her attachment parenting style took to kveller to defend their actions and her own.
She wrote, “These women are not gross! Everyone has a line which, when crossed, makes them perk up their ears. For you, it may be me breastfeeding my 3-year-old. For someone else, it may be me breastfeeding at all (I know people like this).”
She continued, “For you, me holding my newborn over a potty may be the most ridiculous thing you’ve ever heard of. For me, diapers for 4-year-olds sounds pretty outside of my comfort zone, as does not wanting to be close to your baby as much as possible. The point is, we all have an idea of what we want to do or what we think is “normal.” It benefits no one for us to turn someone’s choices or even eccentricity into a case for ridicule or judgment.”
“Let’s reserve judgment for people who beat their children, sell their daughters into prostitution, or deny women the right to make decisions about their bodies and their lives,” she added.
What do you think about Mayim standing up for other celebrity moms?
