Bachelor In Paradise Alum Jade Tolbert Responds To Breastfeeding Backlash

Bachelor In Paradise alum, Jade Tolbert, is responding to the backlash she has been receiving over posting breastfeeding pictures on social media.

Tolbert used Instagram stories to discuss comments regarding a couple of photos she posted of her breastfeeding her five-month-old daughter. In one photo, the new mom is shown in full make-up with Emerson lying next to her. Users attacked her claiming she was giving moms impossible standards to live up to. However, it seems there was a big misunderstanding.

“I had some comments about the picture I posted of me and Emerson after I was breastfeeding and people telling me they don’t look like that when they breastfeed and that I was setting up a standard that was impossible to live up to. The truth about that picture is I had a photo shoot the day before and I hadn’t taken my makeup off, so that’s literally the day before’s makeup,” the 31-year-old reality star explained.

She went on to further share that the photo was a bit staged. Tolbert revealed she fed her baby girl, and then little Emerson fell asleep. It was a precious moment the new mom wanted captured and wanted to share with her followers.

“If you guys feel like I’m portraying some kind of falsehood of motherhood, this is my real life this is me on a Monday morning. I’ve already used my shirt as a spit-up rag. I have clothes everywhere that have not been washed," Tolbert said.

The second photo is actually an Instagram story video of her feeding baby Emerson. Emerson can’t be seen in the video because Jade has her covered up while feeding her. Apparently the fact she was covered up has caused moms to rage against her. Tolbert once again had to set the record straight.

“And people were telling me that I shouldn’t cover up and I was actually getting flack for putting a cover over my baby, which I just don’t understand. Why that would be something people would give me s— about? I feel like I don’t need to share all of that with the world, that’s not the message, it’s just that women should be able to do what they feel they need to do for their babies,” the BIP star stated.

Jade Tolbert is responding to the haters who have been giving her flak for two breastfeeding photos she posted. The reality star is simply trying to do what is right for her baby.
