Salma Hayek comes to rescue of African mum, breastfeeds her baby 1


breastfeed_icon.pngWould any mum do the same in supermodel Salma Hayek’s position?

On a recent tour of Sierra Leone, Salma Hayek came to the aid of an African mother who was unable to provide breast milk for her own baby.

As Salma has only recently weaned her own baby Valentina, she still had a lot of milk and so was able to provide for the other woman’s baby.

Talking to reporters, she said, “The baby was perfectly healthy, but the mother did not have any milk. It was amazing because he was really looking at me and he’s very little. My baby is one year so she can suck a lot harder.”



As a one-off this doesn’t sound particularly controversial. There was a need, and Salma Hayek was able to help out. We’re not talking “The Hand That Rocks the Cradle” here.

What do you think?

    Good for her, it is fab to see celebrities leading by example in such ways- hopefully public coverage of instances such as this will lead to breastfeeding being a more socially ‘acceptable’ and ‘normal’ thing in British society.
    I continue to breastfeed my 22 month old, and if I was in Salmas position absolutely would I have done the same thing if an infant needed a milk feed.
