Busy moms know how it is, especially new moms who are chasing around a couple of toddlers, when a baby is hungry or it’s time to pump, that’s what you’ve got to do. Kristin Cavallari, of MTV’s reality shows, The Hills and Laguna Hills, fame showed no shame about pumping poolside. She actually shared this photo featuring her smiling, sitting on a lounge chair in a bikini, holding her Inspirato breast pump. “Thank you @inspirato for this gorgeous view while I pump ??#DutyCalls #Inspirato“
Her youngest child, daughter Saylor, is now four months old.
Cavallari has been called out recently for some of her less than popular, and downright controversial points of view about parenting. She justified not vaccinating her son, Camden, and choosing to do the same with her second child, Jaxon, when she was pregnant with him in 2014 because she said she “read too many books about autism.”
Most recently she and her husband, Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler, came under fire for providing the recipe for the ‘formula’ they created for their older sons when they were weaned. Apparently, the boys had “sensitivities to cow’s milk,” and Cavallari wrote in her new book, Balancing in Heels: My Journey to Health, Happiness, and Making It All Work, that she was “not a fan of soy,” so the couple worked with their pediatrician to develop a nutrient rich version of formula for Camden and Jaxon using goats milk.
Parenting opinions aside, Cavallari has used her role as a public figure to help #normalizebreastfeeding. She’s shared photos of her nursing before the bikini clad poolside shot, like this one featuring Saylor’s little arm reaching up for her face as she feeds her, big glass of red wine strategically placed behind her for when she’s done nursing.
“This sums up today. Coming for that glass of wine behind me the second I’m done feeding Saylor”
But our favorite has to be this one, where Cavallari takes a break from her book tour to pump. It’s “The glamorous side of the #BalancinginHeels #BookTour.”
In our opinion, anything that helps bring attention and “normalizes” breastfeeding is all good. Whether you agree or not with the rest of Cavallari’s parenting style or opinions, she’s doing what she can for nursing moms.
