Shay Mitchell Responds to Mommy Shamers Judging Her for Looking at the Camera in Breastfeeding Pic

Yesterday, Pretty Little Liars legend Shay Mitchell hopped on Instagram and shared a gorgeous photo of herself breastfeeding her new baby daughter Atlas. Because yep, in the event that you haven’t been keeping up with Shay, she and her boyfriend Matte Babel just welcomed a super-adorable baby girl into the world.

Shay’s photo has been largely well received by fans who are inspired by her normalizing breastfeeding, with comments like “Yes!!! Thx for democratizing such a natural thing 👏” and “Love this and I love all the photos of celebrities breastfeeding.” But UGH, apparently one of her followers wasn’t down with the fact that Shay was looking at the camera and not her baby. Which, um…???? what!

Shay’s response? “I missed the part in the baby books that stated I had to maintain eye contact with my daughter while she feeds rather than capturing an amazing moment we were having. Pls let me know where I can download your parenting manual, I’ll get right on it!”

Shay also spoke to People about mommy shamers, saying “I’ve really had a good experience, from even before being a mom, with dealing with negative comments sometimes and other people. But it’s never about me at the end of the day, it’s about these other people, so I’m just gonna let them say what they wanna say but it doesn’t really affect me.”

👏👏👏
