When her daughter Ramona was 7 months old, Maggie Gyllenhaal was caught by the paparazzi breastfeeding in a New York City park. At the time, the Internet was abuzz with controversy over the intimate shots. Some said the paparazzi were too intrusive, while others felt that Maggie didn't seem fazed at all — regardless of who saw her — as she breastfed her baby in public.
The Academy Award-nominated actress has commented about the pressures of breastfeeding and raising a newborn.
"I’m not a leave-them-in-their-crib-to-cry kind of girl. Fundamentally, I didn’t find that worked. Everyone’s got their own thing, you know? You can’t tell another person when it’s right to stop breastfeeding or how to put your kid to sleep. Every child is different."
