Cameran Eubanks knew she was opening up the ‘floodgates’ when she addressed her social media following with an honest confession that she decided to ‘retire the boobs.’
The 34-year-old Bravo star gave birth to her daughter Palmer Corrine in early November. The real estate agent shares Palmer with husband anesthesiologist Jason Wimberly who she married in 2014. Eubanks made the confession that she stopped breastfeeding in hopes that she could make other mothers out there feel less alone.
I know I’m opening up the flood gates with this one.
Her confession read, “Today marks the day I am DONE with breastfeeding. Gave it a good almost 3 months and I am retiring the boobs. Writing this in hopes it will make other mothers feel less alone. You see, I’m not quitting because my milk supply dried up or because I’m sick. I’m quitting because I’m just plain OVER IT. By CHOICE.”
She went on to write, “I know I will get lectured and judged by this but it doesn’t bother me. I need some freedom back for my sanity and the bottle and formula will allow that. You are NOT a bad mother if you don’t like breastfeeding. A happy Mama is the best gift you can give your baby. (At least in my opinion).”
As expected, the Bravo TV personality received backlash for opening up on the ‘hot topic.’ With over 19,000 comments most were negative rather than positive.
One follower commented, “I really think that moms milk is best for the baby. I will do my best to feed him as long as I can.” While another person wrote, “I hope a struggling new mom having challenges breastfeeding doesn’t come across this discouraging thread and finds an empowering, support breastfeeding group instead.”
While there were a majority of negative comments, Cameron did receive a few supportive words from fellow mamas, “Thank you! I felt the same. Amen Sista.” While another added, “LOVE this!!! Good for you mama!!! Enjoy your freedom back.”
OOTD. #liketoknowit #slay #ImReadyForYouJason
Whether you agree with Cameron’s decision or not it took courage for the new mama to write about such a personal decision. Cheers, to living your best mom life Cameron!
