Beyoncé breastfed Blue Ivy in public and the breastfeeding world is ecstatic.
The world of breastfeeding is buzzing and all it took was for Beyoncé to breastfeed her 7-week-old baby girl, Blue Ivy, in a restaurant.
According to Time.com, Beyoncé was sighted apparently breastfeeding Blue Ivy as they lunched with Jay-Z at New York City’s Sant Ambroeus restaurant.
Was Beyoncé making a statement as many lactivists hope or was she merely feeding her hungry baby? Does Beyoncé feeding her baby in a restaurant really make any difference to how people perceive public breastfeeding?
Apparently it does. Time.com sheds some light: "The simple, perhaps unwitting, decision to feed Blue Ivy at the table rather than retreat to a bathroom or other private location gave a huge boost to the cause of nursing in public, particularly for black women, who have significantly lower breast-feeding rates than white mothers."
