Linda Mtoba on breastfeeding: ‘it’s OK to breastfeed our babies in public’


Actress Linda Mtoba has encouraged other women to breastfeed their babies in public, she told her followers that moms should not ashamed.

Many women around the world especially outside Africa were felt ashamed doing breastfeeding but now religious community and scientists encourage women to do that for better health of babies.

Linda has never been scared to speak out against haters and took to social media recently to share a picture of her breastfeeding at a restaurant. In the caption she said: “I really don’t give much thought to feeding my daughter in public, she needs to eat, so I feed her.

“I thought maybe I’d be anxious about it, but speaking to other mommies truly gave me the confidence I needed to do it,” she said.

“Mommies, it’s OK to breastfeed our babies in public and not feel any shame for it.”

Linda has been candid about her journey as a new mom and last month opened up about the challenges of loving her post-preggers body.

“They don’t tell us how challenging dressing for your new body is. I look at myself in the mirror, trying to recognise my body and what it used to be, it’s gone through so many changes.

“Between those moments, I have somewhere I cry, because I don’t see myself, and all I see is the amount of work I have to put in to get ‘me’ back. I see stretch marks I never had, cellulite in new parts of me, how soft my body is and not as tight as it was, I see flaws. I don’t feel as sexy or as beautiful as I used to feel.”
