Jessie James Decker faces MAJOR backlash after posting pic of herself holding a glass of wine while breastfeeding baby
Most of Jessie James' fans complimented on her Instagram post saying how she's rocking the new-mommy phase, but certain ones raised concerns about drinking while breastfeeding too.
Jessie James Decker has been topping the new-mommy-game pretty awesomely for all this while but looks like recently she might have experienced a bit of a hard time trying to balance motherhood and self-care. As was clear from a recent Instagram post by the "Flip My Hair" singer, where she is seen breastfeeding her son Forrest Bradley, while holding a glass of what seems to be wine.
It's not clear if Jessie's glass had wine, but the post is a clear indication that it's never too absurd for new moms to have their fair share of fun too. But looks like not all of her fans and followers resonated with that same perception.
Several of Jessie's fans cheered her on with comments like: “You go girl! I breastfed all 6 of mine and I love seeing women showing pics of it! It will hopefully someday normalize it for younger generations." But there were also a few who raised concerns about the kind of drink Jessie could have been indulging in.
“You and your baby are beautiful!!!! I hope that’s not alcohol while you feeding that precious gift…” one user wrote, while another chimed in: “Why is it okay to drink while breastfeeding?”
However, there were a fair few moms who did come to her defense regarding the post. “Love it!!! I just learned that it’s totally fine to drink while breastfeeding!!” one of them said. “People give me sh– for having a drink and breastfeeding… my pediatrician told me it was perfectly fine just don’t get hammered lol,” another one added.
But this isn't the first time the 30-year-old singer has shared her intimate moments with her children on social media. Back in July, she had posted a video of herself breastfeeding Forrest Bradley — whom she shares with husband Eric Decker — and in the post she discussed how hard motherhood has been for her.
“It is, like, super tough to try to get a good workout in with your baby trying to nap and crying,” James Decker, who gave birth to Forrest Bradley on March 31, said. “I’m not going to lie obviously I would love to see some changes physically so I can fit back into my old clothes but I have to remind myself I’m only four months post and we have to be patient with ourselves,” she captioned the post.
Speaking about her post-partum journey just days after Forrest Bradley's arrival, she captioned a photo showing her post-baby belly, with: “Keepin it real! 3 weeks post and I’m still very swollen. The 3rd has been by far the hardest recovery, but I’m feeling stronger every day."
James and Jessie are also parents to 4-year-old daughter Vivianne Rose and 2-year-old son Eric Thomas Jr.
