‘Let’s normalise breastfeeding and not sexualise it’

Neha Dhupia shared this pic on her Instagram timeline to normalise breastfeeding.

‘A mother has her choice of how and where she chooses to feed or breastfeed her child. However, time and time again, we see people looking at breastfeeding mothers in a sexual manner,’ says Neha.

Recently a mom blogger was asked by a troll to upload a video of her breastfeeding her baby in a view to get some perverse pleasure out of it.

Calling out the individual for making the breastfeeding situation embarrassing for new moms, the blogger shared her experience on Instagram.

Neha was quick to address the issue with a inspiring post on breastfeeding.

Sharing a pic of her breastfeeding daughter Mehr as a baby, she wrote: ‘The journey of a new mum is something only she can understand.

‘While we all hear the happy side, it is also a huge responsibility and emotionally draining.

‘It’s hard enough to be a mum and do all that there is to do.

‘The last thing we need is to be questioned, mocked and worst of all trolled.

‘I went through the same beats and I know how hard it is.’

Thanking the blogger for voicing the issue, Neha added, ‘Thank you @crazylilmum for sharing this and calling the individual out.

‘A mother has her choice of how and where she chooses to feed or breastfeed her child.

‘However, time and time again, we see people looking at breastfeeding mothers in a sexual manner.

‘This insensitive comment is an example of why it makes it awkward for moms in our country.

‘Let’s normalise breastfeeding and not sexualise it.’
