Heather Mills claims Paul McCartney didn't want her to breastfeed

Update: Many readers are questioning why we are coveringthis. We chose to cover this story because of the way parenting,especially breastfeeding, was used as a reason for divorce, and becauseit involves a celebrity baby. You are welcome to discuss the veracity of the story but please don’t shoot the messenger for reporting on it.

Reasons for the divorce between Paul McCartney and Heather Mills have been revealed inlegal documents. In addition to Heather’s claims that Paul was physically abusive to her, she also alleges that when she was pregnant, Paul told her several times that he did not want her to breastfeed their daughter Beatrice, now almost 3, as they were "his breasts" and didn’t want a "mouthful of breast milk." However, Heather says she did choose to breastfeed Beatrice, but gave up after 6 weeks after constant interuptions and complaints from Paul. As with all divorce proceedings, we must take this with a grain of salt because it is very much a he said/she said thing. As some readers have pointed out, Paul’s first wife Linda breastfed their kids and is into a vegetarian lifestyle so Heather’s breastfeeding story seems unlikely.

No decisions on the custody of Beatrice have currently been made, though Heather is apparently asking for full custody with visitation rights for Paul.
