Gisele Bundchen says there should be a law mandating breastfeeding newborns for the first six months

tbd-giselebundchen071111.jpgSupermodel Gisele Bundchen is opening her mouth about motherhood again, this time refraining from criticizing what expectant mothers eat and homing in on what newborn babies eat. Because she does everything so darn perfect, that's why.

"I think breastfeeding really helped," the 30-year-old told Harper's Bazaar UK of her fab figure being well-established only seven months after son Benjamin Rein was born. "Some people here think they don't have to breastfeed, and I think, 'Are you going to give chemical food to your child, when they are so little?' There should be a worldwide law, in my opinion, that mothers should breastfeed their babies for six months."

Whoa, whoa, whoa there, Brazilian Gwyneth Paltrow. Didn't you learn your lesson from accusing moms of turning into "garbage disposals" by eating whatever they wanted when you flapped your gums back in March? This is a subject of great interest in stately Juice* Manor, with the advent of young Baby Juice*, but when you start telling people legislation should define what they feed their kids, you're gonna raise some hackles.

Not everyone is able or willing to breastfeed, y'know. Just like not everyone is able or willing to steal Tom Brady from Bridget Moynihan just before that poor girl reveals she's pregnant. We'll have to check our archives to see if their son John Edward Thomas was breastfed, so you can while about that, too.
