Kailyn Lowry Responds to Breastfeeding Backlash: Who Cares?!?

by at .

Kailyn Lowry has something in common with Gisele Bundchen:

Both have been criticized for breastfeeding their children in public.

The Teen Mom star recently pulled out a boob for her 10-month old son, Lincoln, during a signing of her new book, “Pride Over Pity."

At first, Lowry tells Life & Style, those in the vicinity gave her props, telling Kailyn she's a "pro" and applauding the move.

The next day, however, Lowry noted a handful of hurtful comments posted online.

“They wrote, ‘Oh my God, that’s so disgusting. Why would you do that?" Lowry tells the tabloid. "I got a lot of heat for it. But I’m feeding my kid. Who cares?

"I think it’s crazy and unbelievable that anyone would be offended by breastfeeding."

But they are, of course. This issue has grown into a polarizing one on the Internet.

Remember Lucy Eades and the discrimination she took for breastfeeding her child in a public place?

Cases such as hers are the reason why this breastfeeding ad campaign was created by women in Texas, as they attempt to fight back against anyone who dares call out a mother simply doing her job as a parent.

Where do you stand on this topic? Do you think it's anyone's business what a mother does to provide nutrients for her child?

NOTE: You can watch Teen Mom online via TV Fanatic for plenty more from Lowry and her costars.
