Ashley Graham is clapping back at criticism for her decision to stop breastfeeding her twin sons.
“It’s all about people telling you how to feed your baby,” the model told Chelsea Handler on “The Daily Show” on Tuesday.
“With my first child, I was like, ‘I can just breastfeed! This is the right way!'” she continued about son Isaac. “Then I had twins, and I was like was, ‘I’m not doing it. It’s not working here. Do you both want these two? It’s a lot of work.”
Graham, 35, noted that since she stopped nursing five months after welcoming Malachi and Roman, the boys have been “so strong and so happy” on formula.
“I don’t think we should be telling people how we should feed our children,” he concluded.
The “A New Model” author became a mother in January 2020 when she gave birth to Isaac, now 3, followed by her now 1-year-old twins two years later.
Graham joked on the Comedy Central late-night show that the little kids have “completely wiped him out of everything.”
“Your body fills up with nutrients, and then the baby sucks them out of you,” she explained. “You get acne, don’t lose weight, [and] This is where your breasts go when you’re done.”
The Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue cover girl admitted she was wearing two bras under her white Balmain dress during the interview, saying, “It’s fine.”
Graham said in May 2022 that having children had “reshaped” her relationship with her body.
“I’ve learned that it’s okay if the journey of loving the skin you’re in is more complicated than you ever imagined,” she told Glamor at the time, adding that She still doesn’t feel “completely comfortable” in her body. .
However, the “American Beauty Star” host said, “I’m bold, I’m awesome, I’m beautiful. We all are.”
