Model Coco Rocha Puts An End To Bottle-Shaming

It all started with an innocent post of a text message conversation with the virtual assistant service GoButler.  It was meant as an endorsement for the service, but ended up with Coco having to respond to people criticising her for breastfeeding her 6 month old, Ioni.

Coco was clearly not fazed by the “haters” and responded with a follow up Instagram post.  She shared her breastfeeding journey while emphasising that the way a mom chose to feed her child was a personal parenting choice.

“Getting a lot of unwanted advice based on my last post. Not that this is anyone’s business – I loved breastfeeding Ioni for the first 5 months of her life and then one day my milk went dry. It happens to every mom at different times. She’s been on formula for a few weeks now and seems to be doing just fine. In the last 4 weeks she gained another 2 pounds, grew another inch and is in the 90th percentile for her age. Anyone who has a negative comment to make on the way I raise my baby will be blocked. This is not a democracy, everyone doesn’t get a say.”
