Gisele Bundchen: 'breastfeeding should be made law'

Tuesday August 3, 2010

Gisele Bundchen has said that mothers should be made to breastfeed for the first six months of a baby's life.

Speaking to a US magazine, the 30-year-old model said that she believes there should be a law preventing mothers from using formula milk.

"Some people here (the US) think they don’t have to breastfeed, and I think 'Are you going to give chemical food to your child when they are so little?'

"I think there should be a worldwide law, in my opinion, that mothers should breastfeed their babies for six months."

Gisele, currently the world's highest paid supermodel, gave birth naturally in her Boston home last December to her first child, son Benjamin Rein.

The day after she gave birth, the Brazilian beauty – married to American footballer Tom Brady - got up to make pancakes, and was famously modelling swimwear six weeks later.
