Famous Bollywood actress and Roadies mentor Neha Dhupia recently shared a picture of herself with her daughter Mehr. In the picture, Neha was seen breastfeeding her daughter. Adding more to this, Neha also shared a screenshot of a woman responding to a troll who sexualized breastfeeding.
This is How Neha Dhupia Tries Hand at Eradicating the Sexualisation of Breastfeeding
Neha wrote, “The journey of a new mum is something only she can understand. While we all hear the happy side, it is also a huge responsibility and emotionally draining. It’s hard enough to be a mum and do all that there is to do. The last thing we need is to be questioned, mocked and worst of all trolled. I went through the same beats and I know how hard it is.”
Neha also shared a screenshot with the same thread. In the thread, a troll is bullying a mom and the latter is giving a befitting reply to her.
“Thank you @crazylilmum for sharing this and calling this individual out. ? ( krrishtherocker1987 ) A mother has her choice of how and where she chooses to feed or breastfeed her child. However, time and time again we see people looking at breastfeeding mothers in a sexual manner. @freedomtofeed We work each day towards normalising the act of breastfeeding in our communities and are extremely sensitive towards new mothers and parents and as we think everyone should be. This insensitive comment is an example of why it makes it awkward for moms in our country. They must be called out. … let’s normalise breastfeeding not sexualise it.” Several fans commented on Neha’s picture and wrote, “It is extremely important to normalise breastfeeding! You are doing such a fabulous job with this initiative!”, while the other one wrote, “I feed my baby everywhere no matter who is checking on me.”
Neha expressed her opinion on the original post and commented saying, “Just sending a big hug to all you mamas out there.”
Neha and Angad Bedi became parents to baby Mehr in 2018.
