Mayim Bialik defends breast feeding in public

US Weekly reports that actor Mayim Bialik is defending the act of breast-feeding in public. the magazine reports that the actress, best known for playing Blossom in the 90's comedy and as being Sheldon Cooper's squeeze on The Big Bang Theory, is saying that breast feeding isn’t a sexual act.

The two children the actor and her husband have are no longer breast feeding, but apparently Bialik did breastfeed in public when they were younger.

"I think anywhere you give a bottle, you breastfeed," the Big Bang Theory actress explained. "I didn't feel the need to be immodest, but also feel like that's going to vary from woman to woman. I would try and be, absolutely, respectful and conscious of the community I was in, but I don't believe you need to cover up a baby eating, anymore than you need to cover up a baby drinking a bottle."

The actor posted an image of herself breastfeeding her son in 2011, he was three at the time and she was feeding him on the New York subway. The actor is a supporter of something called attachment parenting that involved co-sleeping, babywearing, and breastfeeding.

"Breastfeeding is not a sexual act. It's an intimate act, and that makes some people uncomfortable," she explained to Huffington Post. "But that's completely normal to have all of the humane hormones that are released when you breastfeed regulating your relationship with your child -- that's simply normal."
