Myleene Klass has passionately defended her decision to share images of herself breastfeeding her children.

The 42-year-old radio host and musician is proud mum to 12-year-old daughter Ava, nine-year-old daughter Hero, and 11-month-old son Apollo.

The former Hear’Say star has called for women to band together to help normalise public breastfeeding – as a debate about the topic continues to drag alone.

While Myleene also took aim at those who challenge her for her decision to breastfeed her children – and blasted some of the more ridiculous arguments she has heard against the practice.

Myleene Klass has written in defence of breastfeeding

Sharing a series of images of herself breastfeeding her babies via Instagram, Myleene wrote: "Uh oh. Some of us mums are being chastised for 'pumping'.

"No one bats an eyelid prepping their own breakfast, why choose to get flustered over my baby having his? Boobs were designed to feed How funny that some fat, cells and glands could so deeply offend so many.”
She continued: “Being a mum is hard enough. You can’t do right for doing wrong.

"Seemingly, everyone knows how to raise YOUR baby except you.

The radio host took aim at some of the more ridiculous arguments against breastfeeding

"If you feed with formula, you’re supposedly the devil, if you breastfeed, you’re offending those that don’t or can’t and worse yet, the patriarchy won’t be able to control themselves…stop titillating the men folk! My body, my baby, my choice.”

Addressing her breastfeeding of her baby son, she wrote: ”I’ve been exclusively breastfeeding Apollo for 11 months. He’s my miracle baby. It’s a part of our bond. I love, LOVE doing it for him.”

She went on to give a rally call for other women to share their own breastfeeding photos and stories.

She wrote: ”The photos of other women breastfeeding, pumping, normalise things for me and if mine, in turn, do the same for other mothers who feel embarrassed, judged or that they should need to stifle their baby under a Muslin lest they offend some wallflower with their life giving, breastfeeding skills, I‘ll continue posting."

She added: "The cracked nipples, feeding through mastitis, engorgement, bleeding, blocked milk ducts, the fear someone’s left the freezer drawer open and ruined your milk stash.

Myleene urged other mothers to share their own experiences

"The night pumping, the leaking, the boulder sized bras cutting up your shoulders, the extra weight your body clings onto, trying not to spill a drop as you decant at work, timing your feeds so you don’t explode, watching what you eat and drink, these mums deserve support and respect, not critique. What a bunch of babies."

Her words were applauded by followers, with model Erin O'Connor writing: "AMEN," alongside a praying hands emoji and kissing face emoji.

While soap star Helen Flanagan commented: "Ah how beautiful” alongside a pink hear emoji.
