While we like to think that breast-feeding in public is becoming more socially acceptable, the reality is that many mothers are still chastised for taking care of their child’s most basic needs, even when they practice discretion.
But the wife of country star, DJ and master remixer Dee Jay Silver doesn’t much care. Jenna is proud to have made it for nearly a year of nursing the couple’s precious, ginger-haired baby, Wake, and plans on carrying on for as long as her little nugget dictates.
In a photo she shared on her Instagram page, Jenna looks the part of the consummate earth mother. While Wake takes a little milk break on a plane, Mom carefully covers herself and as much of her son as she can, flashes her dazzling smile and a peace sign, and writes, “Nine days away from nursing for a full year and we’ll keep going strong after that! … Anywhere, anytime for my little dude!”
Dee Jay, Jenna and Wake just spent some downtime in the southern part of Florida and Bimini, where the tot got to enjoy the sunshine, crystal clear water and just being cute as heck.
Props to Jenna for taking a stand for something she believes in, and also to all the moms who are doing the best they can and figuring out what works best for them.
