Ashley Graham defends her decision to stop breastfeeding twin boys

Ashley Graham has defended her decision to stop breastfeeding her twin boys when they were a few months old.

The model welcomed her two youngest children, Malachi and Roman, now aged 13 months, in January 2022.
Ashley shared her thoughts during Tuesday’s (7 February) edition of The Daily Show, where she discussed attitudes towards breastfeeding with guest host Chelsea Handler.

The 35-year-old, who is also mum to a three-year-old son named Isaac, said: “There’s this whole thing with people telling you how to feed your child. With my first kid, I was like, ‘I could only breastfeed. This is the right way’.”
“This is not working here,” she added. “Both of you want both of [my breasts]. This is a lot of work.”
The model also revealed she stopped breastfeeding when her twins were five months old and switched to feeding them formula.
“It felt like I was feeding a nation,” she joked.
“These little guys are so strong and so happy, so I don’t think we should be telling people how they should be feeding their kids,” she explained.

Ashley, who is married to cinematographer Justin Ervin, has shared pictures of her breastfeeding and doting on the couple’s three children on Instagram.
In one candid selfie shared in June 2022, when the twins were around five months old, Ashley can be seen posing while her boys feed from her breasts.
She captioned the post: “Tired. but we’re here.”
The post drew lots of praise from women in the comments, who crowned Ashley ‘a force’ and ‘a super mom’.
Actress Freida Pinto commented: “My hero you!”
While Handler wrote: “Omgoodness.”
