Moon Bloodgood made an appearance on the Craig Ferguson show this week.
The great part about this interview is that she publicly stated that her 18-month-old child is still breastfeeding (and apparently is not anywhere close to being night-weaned).
Craig Ferguson reacted to the news in a way that was extremely positive, and yet, still kind of neutral. I think I love this guy.
The only part of this segment that made me a little sad was how Bloodgood seemed a bit embarrassed about her “confession.” But I do kind of love that she made the statement lighthearted and a bit of a joke. That is a great way of bringing down the cortisol levels of anyone watching who may find the information shocking.
However, no one should ever feel shame for doing what is best for their child or their family. This is just another reminder that we still can improve on supporting breastfeeding moms. Yes, even at 18 months and beyond.
So cheers to Moon Bloodgood! You go, mama! And how brave to be able admit something ( very normal) publicly that isn’t well accepted by society.
