- Netizens have criticized Kylie Padilla’s breastfeeding photos on social media
- One photo shows Kylie breastfeeding Alas in a restroom while another shows her covering the child’s face with a shirt while breastfeeding him
- The actress and her fiancé Aljur Abrenica shared their thoughts about the issue
Kylie Padilla was bashed by some netizens for posting a photo of herself breastfeeding her child Alas inside a restroom and for breastfeeding him at a restaurant while using her shirt to cover the toddler’s head.
KAMI learned that the Kapuso star has broken her silence about the controversy.
In an interview with PEP.ph, Kylie said that she had no choice but to breastfeed her son inside the restroom since he was already having a tantrum out of hunger.
"I'm happy na it got that kind of reaction.
"In some way nakatulong siya for breastfeeding moms, and raise awareness to get more breastfeeding stations."
"What happened was we were in a mall and yun nga, meron namang [breastfeeding station] sa mall na yun.
"But it was too far away, and nagwawala na yung anak ko.
"And saglit lang, he wants to feed for comfort or nauhaw lang siya. So I gave it to him for 10 minutes.
"There was a changing place there so pinalitan ko yung diaper niya. So the picture didn't say enough, e.
"Meron akong gatas, e, so ba't hindi ko ipapakain sa kanya?" she explained to PEP.ph.
Her fiancé Aljur Abrenica also made a defense of Kylie’s decision.
"Yung sa breastfeeding na yun, I'm aware of it, sa mga comments. Ang masasabi ko lang, no one can really tell or judge someone on motherhood.
"Kasi lahat naman tayo may pamamaraan ng pag-aalaga sa bata, and I respect that. Yung ginawa ni Kylie, as her fiancé, wala akong problema dun.
"Kasi sa bahay, kapag nagutom yung anak namin, gutom talaga yan. Wala ka nang mapagpipiliang lugar."
"It just so happened na habang nasa CR si Kylie nagutom yung bata.
"Hindi na kami... wala nang oras pa para, mag-check in pa kami o kung ano man ang gusto nila, yung comment nila na madumi o ano man.
"Ang sa akin, ginawa ni Kylie yung responsibilidad niya bilang isang ina so walang ano sa akin yun,” he stated.
In an earlier report by KAMI, Kylie was visited by her mother Liezl Sicangco and her sister Queenie Padilla.
The actress’ father is action legend Robin Padilla. She and Aljur are set to get married before the year ends.
Kylie gave birth to her son Alas on August 4, 2017.
