Gisele Backtracks on Breastfeeding “Law” Comment

Damage control! In an effort to lighten the blow of her recent comment about making breastfeeding a law in the US, Gisele Bundchen has taken to her blog to “clarify” a few things.

AKA, after all of the negative backlash, her publicist probably demanded that she make nice with all of the moms she just royally pissed off. Don’t remember what she said? Here’s a refresher from her interview with Harper’s Bazaar UK:

“Some people here (in the US) think they don’t have to breastfeed, and I think ‘Are you going to give chemical food to your child when they are so little?’ I think there should be a worldwide law, in my opinion, that mothers should breastfeed their babies for six months.”

Yeah, that didn’t go over too well.

Required by Law

To clean up the huge mess she made, Gisele has written the following post on her blog:

“My intention in making a comment about the importance of breastfeeding has nothing to do with the law. It comes from my passion and beliefs about children. Becoming a new mom has brought a lot of questions, I feel like I am in a constant search for answers on what might be the best for my child. It’s unfortunate that in an interview sometimes things can seem so black and white. I am sure if I would just be sitting talking about my experiences with other mothers, we would just be sharing opinions. I understand that everyone has their own experience and opinions and I am not here to judge. I believe that bringing a life into this world is the single most important thing a person can undertake and it can also be the most challenging. I think as mothers we are all just trying our best.”

Why do we get the feeling that this clarification isn’t going to do much to ease the anger of all the mothers she offended? Correct us if we’re wrong, but we don’t see the words “sorry” or “apologize” anywhere above. (Us Weekly)

Tell us: what do you think of Gisele’s clarification of her breastfeeding comment?
