Gisele Bundchen: Breastfeeding and Multitasking!

by at .  Updated at . Comments

Gisele Bundchen has again sparked debate and discussion over breastfeeding, this time by simply sitting there doing so in a white terry cloth robe.

While being made up and styled for a photo shoot, obviously.

The Brazilian beauty shared Tuesday this somewhat controversial photo of herself breastfeeding daughter Vivian as a beauty squad carried out its duties:

Gisele Bundchen Breastfeeding

"What would I do without this beauty squad after the 15 hours flying and only 3 hours of sleep #multitasking #gettingready," Tom Brady's wife captioned the photo.

Nursing her one-year-old as she gets her nails, makeup and hair done by three different people, Gisele also translated the caption into her native Portuguese.

That's taking multitasking to a new level.

Back in August 2010, the former Victoria's Secret Angel caused a stir after the birth of her first child with her NFL quarterback husband, son Benjamin.

"I think breastfeeding really helped," she told Harper's Bazaar UK about getting back the figure that made her the world's highest paid supermodel.

"Some people here 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?'"

"There should be a worldwide law, in my opinion," Bundchen added controversially, "that mothers should breastfeed their babies for six months."

She made no such claim about the above picture. If anything, she should be given credit for acknowledging that it takes a team to do as she does.

It's also a lovely picture, and what we as a society should want for every mother, the ability to feed her child as best she can, and do work she loves.

So why are some people not thrilled with Gisele's picture?

Perhaps they think she's trying to make a grander point about what women can and should do, while not realizing most people don't have her staff.

Or perhaps it's not as much anti-Gisele, but broader envy.

Considering that maternity leave in the U.S. is largely seen as a joke and so few people could emulate this (models or not), it may well make people unhappy.

Should it be at Bundchen, though? Or society? Discuss ...

What do you think of Gisele's breastfeeding pic?

This is not multi-tasking. It is sad that people are not smart enough to stop looking at things that offend them. Personally, I could care less if a baby has a teat or a bottle in its mouth. I would much rather have the kid eating and quiet than screaming from hunger. There are groups for those with nursing fetishes. But then again there is nothing better than the fantasies in your own mind. That hottie with her tit in her kid's mouth will destroy your fantasy in 0.3 seconds; the time it would take to get the teat out of the kid's mouth and into yours. Don't ruin a good thing.

Yep, all Mom's should. They should require permits, genetic testing and intelligence tests before ppl can reproduce. More people should be hands-on and care about their children because they are impacting society... I advocate systematic sterilization of undesirable peoples. Face it, too many Mexicans and blacks squirting spawn out when we should have more giselles around the world. Did u know Japan sold more adult diapers than infant diapers this year!?!?

The only people who have an issue with this are pedophile conservatives who feel guilty about lusting after children.

Here is a great mom who can produce milk for her child! A child first food should be the mother's milk. That is just nature. Deal with it you pervert minds!

She is Brazilian and she was in Brazil when this photo was taken , in Brazil is normal to breastfeed in public, with people next by , etc. They don't even cover up the breast, just put the thing out and put in the baby's mouth .That is their culture, and she was over there doing something what is normal to them. Here in US people think breastfeed in public is wrong in special by having 2 guys looking at her breast , that is why you guys are judging her but in Brazil she got nothing but pleasant comments.

She's just sitting there while everyone else works. I don't think the word multi-tasking means what you think it means. #

it seems liberating, doesn't it. but think of all the men staring at free tits at the restaurant or hall. How much freedom is actually good?. I know the sentiment but still majority of mom prefer to keep their private parts hidden. let me give u a joke.. a man goes over to a young women and asks her to show her tits, she slaps him.. then while leaving , he says to her , no prob, ill probably return a few years later when u have baby, and while u feed the toddler in public, ill get a pleasant view.. and jerk off underneath my table, so thanks in advance.

This is ridiculous. Breast Feeding in any public form should be against the law. If you choose to do that fine, do it, but go somewhere that everyone doesn't have to look at you doing it. Props to her staff for putting up with it. But they just want a paycheck. If you would know them personally and they could speak their opinion I am sure they would not be ok with this. And her thoughts on everyone should do it? Maybe not every woman can, has she thought of that. It doesn't work for all women. Not everyone has staff to take care of them, their children, and their homelife. Must be nice.

Gisele Bundchen [on Tom Brady]

I work in fashion but I'm not really a fashion person. I don't follow trends. I couldn't tell you which designer made that shoe or that bag. I like jeans.
