In recent years, one of the most hotly debated topic regarding motherhood is breastfeeding. Previously viewed as intimate, private, and even inappropriate in public, it forced moms to hide feeding their babies. However, more and more feminists are fighting for the right to breastfeed in public. They work to shatter the stigma against and open minds so that moms will have the freedom to breastfeed anywhere. As they rightfully should be able to do, if you ask us. Luckily, August is National Breastfeeding Month, making it the perfect time to forward the movement.
Saab Magalona-Bacarro spreads awareness on National Breastfeeding Month
While still new to the game, one of our favorite celebrity moms is already at the forefront. Saab Magalona-Bacarro posted a sweet photo of her breastfeeding son Pancho.
The photo shared shows baby Pancho feeding while mommy Saab is sporting a beautiful nursing top from Kaypee Baby. Likewise, in the caption, she shares an anecdote where she was rushed to the hospital in the wee hours of the night. One of Saab’s breasts turned rock hard and wouldn’t produce milk no matter how hard she tried. Turns out, milk had solidified in her breast causing the clog as well as the pain. Thankfully, the doctor shot her with anesthesia to extract the dried milk. She also learned how to properly massage her breast to avoid clogs in the future.
Also wanting to be part of the movement, Saab promises to share more stories on National Breastfeeding Month. Quite like this first post, we’re looking forward to more touching posts with informative stories from Saab and other moms.
