Jessie James Decker Turns Breastfeeding Photo Into Necessary Teaching Moment

-

We’re all guilty of it—Comparing ourselves to other people when we see how good their lives look on social media. But what we see is one photo, a brief moment in time, we have no idea what is going on in their lives. Jessie James Decker is taking a moment to prove that it’s not all glitz and glamour, but there is real life beyond the photo. 

The mom of three—Vivianne Rose, 4, Eric Jr., 2, and Forrest, 2 months—took to social media to share a breakdown moment she had while breastfeeding her new son Forrest. While we see her life play out in glamorous photos, the “Lights Down Low” singer is proving there’s more to her life than a photo can tell. 

“Sometimes ya gotta eat on the job… when baby is hungry ya gotta feed em no matter what you’re doing,” she began her post before getting real.  “After this shoot (which was about an hour from home) we drove back, me driving, mama and glam team. It starting raining like crazy and Forrest was screaming his head off the entire way to the point of crocodile tears and losing his voice from screaming. It was so stressful and as soon as we got off the highway and were in a very low speed limit, mama and I switched seats at a red light in the rain so she could drive and I hopped in the back seat with Forrest and fed him with boob out leaned awkwardly over the car seat to calm him down! (Don’t recommend cus Its obviously not the right thing to do with no seatbelt)

She went on to tell why she shared that personal information. “But my point of this post is even though things seem glamorous and fabulous in photos. Behind the scenes real shit happens. On the way home I cried, I got stressed and anxiety, and I was just a mom trying to do my best just like we all are no matter the situation! Now I need to know in the comments below has anyone ever done this boob out over car seat maneuver!”

Truer words have never been spoken. And by the results of the comments, it looks like the boob out over the car seat is  very common. Celebrities, their just like us.
