It seems there's not much a mom can do that won't spark some sort of criticism or debate these days.
That's what actress and "Project Runway: All Stars" host Alyssa Milano learned after sharing photos on Instagram of herself participating in a perfectly natural mom activity — breast-feeding.
"I didn't really set out, posting those pictures, as taking a stand for breast-feeding," Milano revealed during a Wednesday visit to TODAY. "I was just kind of sharing a moment. And then I realized, through the responses, that it was a moment that kind of needed to happen to start a dialogue, because people are still very anti-breast-feeding in public."
The critical comments she faced on Instagram and beyond weren't her first experience with breast-feeding backlash.
"Someone once told me to breast-feed my baby in the bathroom, and I just thought ... yeah, that didn't go over too well," she recalled. "I just thought, 'Do you eat in a bathroom in a stall?' It's so weird."
But even though the mom of two never expected to be an activist about the issue, she's happy to be in that position now.
"I'm glad the dialogue started, and hopefully I can make things be easier for moms in the future whether they're breast-feeding or bottle-feeding," Milano said.
