Gisele Bundchen thinks breastfeeding should be a law



tbd-giselebundchen080410.jpgBrazilian supermodel Gisele Bundchen has been a mommy for a whole seven months, so of course she's an expert in everything about kids, right? Hey, Tom Brady told her so. That's why she's telling Harper's Bazaar that breastfeeding should be a law for the first six months after a woman gives birth. Sounds perfectly rational, right, ladies?

"I think breastfeeding really helped. 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?'" she said. "There should be a worldwide law, in my opinion, that mothers should breastfeed their babies for six months."

She also spouts about how she gave birth to Benjamin Rein naturally -- after practicing kung fu for a whole two weeks and lots of yoga and meditation: "It prepared me mentally and physically," she said. "It's called 'labor,' not 'holiday' for a reason, and I knew that."

Oh, that's clever, G; almost as clever as angering the millions of women out there who have problems lactating and rely on formula to keep their kids alive. Maybe a little yoga would help them with that.
