"Love how Chrissy and John have zero cares about anyone else's opinions. They don't choose to post a picture just for attention. They choose to post it because they are normal people, doing normal things and raising their kids as normal as possible. They don't care about anyone's opinions. They simply take pictures and post pictures that they want to remember, just like anyone else on social media," one fan wrote. 

Another chipped in by commenting, " Don't ever stop what you’re doing! We need amazing advocates for booby feeding and you’re doing an amazing job and looking fab, don't ever be put off by these attention-seeking trolls! I have seen more flesh in kids magazines and we NEED people to finally see breastfeeding as the norm! You both rock!”

God Bless you mama for multitasking," wrote one fan while another added, "Lmfao so many people are hating on breastfeeding and doing it in public.
