LOVE this celeb’s brilliant response to breastfeeding comments

Photos of famous mums breastfeeding have been all over social media for a while now, but there are still many people who would rather this wasn’t the case.

British model and television presenter Tamara Ecclestone recently sparked more debate about breastfeeding in public when she shared a photo taken with her daughter on holiday in the Bahamas.

Pictured looking relaxed while feeding her 15-month-old in a swimming pool, the 30-year-old posted the snap to Instagram with the caption, “All that swimming is thirsty work!”.

All that swimming is thirsty work ?

The shot received many positive comments, like, “Beautiful picture and great message!”

And, “You’re encouraging women to breastfeed not only in public but past their baby’s first birthday!! Well done you!”

But not everyone was happy about it. One comment read, “It is beautiful but in the privacy of your own home cover up with a blanket.”

It continued, “No I don’t want to see your boob in public neither does my husband we all know it’s a beautiful thing and your child has to eat blah blah blah pump before you go out or cover up nothing in this world is private everyone wants to expose themselves and there baby I don’t get it really.”

Ignoring the comments, Tamara later posted a shot of her feeding her daughter on the beach. Good on her.

Perfect end to a perfect day #magicalmoments #makingmemories
