“You Are Allowed To Smoke, Drink In Public, Why Can't You Breastfeed?”: TV Actress Chhavi Mittal Bats For Nursing Mothers
It’s not just Neha Dhupia, Soha Ali Khan and Sameera Reddy who are sensitising masses about breastfeeding and seeking out more facilities for mothers who nurse, TV actress, Krishnadasi fame, Chhavi Mittal too has joined the bandwagon and is on a mission to bring about awareness on breastfeeding.

An inspiration to new mothers, Chhavi has been a leading light encouraging mothers to regain post-partum confidence. While conversing with TimesofIndia.com, Chhavi expressed her thoughts on breastfeeding in public.



“Breastfeeding is a beautiful thing between a mother and a child. It's a bond that is impossible to break. Those 20 minutes with the baby is bliss. So I like that 'us' time to be secluded and with no one around. Yes, there are times when we have to step out of the house with the baby. Public breastfeeding should be allowed. If you are allowed to smoke, drink, abuse in public, why not breastfeeding? It's the most beautiful and natural thing to do. All of us have done it at some point in time. Why shy away from it? A lot of importance is given to breastfeeding," she said.


Not too long back, Chhavi had shared her post-partum journey with her social media followers. Listing out the constraints and changes that were part of her new body, Chhavi had penned a long note. “My feet are so swollen that even flip flops don't fit. So is the rest of my body. My head hurts like it'll explode, due to the spinal tap. I've gone deaf in one ear, also an extremely rare side effect of the spinal tap. I'm supposed to drink 5 litres of water, and getting up to go the loo takes 15 minutes. Lying down is the only position that gives me comfort, sometimes I even eat in that position. But right now, at 1am, I'm doing some office work, when the baby sleeps and there's some peace, because @shittyideastrending 's new Web-series #BinBulayeMehmaan had to be launched today,” read the note.



She went on to say, “I know this will pass. This pain will be forgotten. But will the pain that I endured on my soul during the birth be ever forgotten? Sharing my birth story soon, when I feel ready. #birthstory”
