Alyssa Milano: My Son Milo's a Latching Pro
"I was lucky to have a baby who from the moment he came into the world, was a pro at latching on," the actress tells Best for Babes. "I think the thing I like best about breastfeeding is the closeness I feel to Milo and knowing that he's getting the best of me."
Since the arrival of son Milo Thomas, Alyssa Milano has had no problem bonding with her nursing newborn.
“I was lucky to have a baby who from the moment he came into the world, was a pro at latching on,” the New Year’s Eve actress, 38, tells Best for Babes. “I think the thing I like best about breastfeeding is the closeness I feel to Milo and knowing that he’s getting the best of me.”
And while Milano is intent on nursing her 3-month-old son, the new mom isn’t prepared to take it public.
“I wish I could breastfeed in public without feeling as though a picture would show up on TMZ,” she admits. “I’ve breastfed Milo in my car numerous times and in fitting rooms at stores. But mostly, when we go out I bring a bottle of expressed milk because sadly, I’m just not comfortable feeding him in public.”
From mommy mishaps to navigating life with a newborn, Milano says there’s one place she can always turn to for much-needed advice: her Twitter followers.
“I can ask a question about anything at all and get a good variety of opinions from everyone,” she explains. “When I tweet about breastfeeding or baby stuff in general, it feels good knowing that women are there to support each other.”
