Jennifer Lopez thinks breast feeding is no good



Tbdjenniferlopez032708_2 From The Juice* collective’s resident mommy member:

The mommy bloggers are tsk-tsking over People magazine’s slobbering piece with pictures of the palace that is the nursery for Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony’s twins.

It’s not the Dolce and Gabbana fur wraps that have them throwing down their sippy cups of chardonnay, it’s her shrug over the whole idea of breastfeeding: “My mom didn’t breast-feed, and I think that was the thing for me. You read and figure out what’s the best thing for them.”

Um, what exactly has she been reading? Because even the side of a bottle of formula bottle reads “Breast is best,” because breastfed infants have lower rates of hospital admissions, ear infections, diarrhea, rashes, allergies and other medical problems.

The People profile also talks about how she’s now training for a triathlon, working out a couple hours a day. “I want my babies to be proud of me,” she stated.  Whaaa? How are babies going to be proud of you for getting your body back in record time? They are still trying to find their toes at the moment. Just admit you have tremendous pressure to look good in show biz and be done with it.
