Kristen Bell to Breastfeeding Critics: They're Just Boobs!

by at .

Kristen Bell is standing up for a woman's right to expose her private parts in public.

Speaking to Cosmopolitan, the actress - who Tweeted about breastfeeding pumps backstage at the 2013 CMT Awards - said folks really need to chill out when it comes to this motherly act.

"They’re just boobs!” she says. “Calm down. They’re under our shirt whether you’re looking at them or not."

A number of celebrities have posted photos of themselves breastfeeding online in order to take a similar stance, with Jaime King doing so earlier this month.

A picture of Gisele Bundchen breastfeeding also went viral last year.

As for the attachment parenting trend, Bell admits she’s "taken a very casual approach" when it comes to daughter Lincoln.

"We didn’t co-sleep other than the first few weeks,” says the Veronica Mars star. “Lincoln sleeps wonderfully on her own and likes being in her crib by herself, and I let her breastfeed until she decided she was done."

Sounding far too rational for a celebrity, Bell concluded:

"I definitely value giving her alone time so that when she inevitably isn’t the center of everyone’s universe when she gets a little bit older, it doesn’t feel like the rug is pulled out from underneath her."
