When Mom-of-two Elisha Wilson Beach, posted a photo of herself breastfeeding her daughter while using the toilet on Instagram, she probably didn’t expect the backlash that would follow.
Although the picture has been shared more than 25,000 times and has been liked on Facebook more than 211,000 times, there are still many who are criticizing her for breastfeeding while using the toilet. Some have described it as disgusting and unhygienic.
She has responded to her critics saying,
‘This is my picture and yes I am breastfeeding.
‘I shared it on Instagram knowing that some people would think it’s TMI but it’s reality.
‘Everybody complains that social media is full of people pretending to live picture perfect lives and I see so many mothers doubting themselves based on those photos.
‘Well, this is reality and so many mothers are doing this exact thing right now. Motherhood ain’t pretty but then that’s what makes it so beautiful.’
Wilson Beach is the wife of TV actor Michael Beach, known for his roles on Sons of Anarchy, Third Watch and ER.
