We’ve been waiting and hoping Beyonce would be spotted breastfeeding Blue Ivy and she finally was seen nursing in public over the weekend. Beyonce, Jay-Z and Blue Ivy made their first public appearance as a family at Sant Ambrose cafe in New York City, and Mom and Dad weren’t the only hungry ones. Witnesses say Beyonce breastfed her 7-week-old baby right at the table, which is exactly what we like to hear.
What’s more, we love that Beyonce will also be a huge role model for African American mothers, a population that typically falls behind in breastfeeding rates. According to the CDC, only 54.5% of African American mothers attempt to breastfeed, while 74.3% of white mothers do.
Thank you Beyonce! We hope you keep up the public displays of breastfeeding Blue Ivy.
