Sam Faiers’ Snapchat Has Caused A Breastfeeding Debate

The 25-year-old shared a photo of herself nursing her baby son Paul last night, and it sparked *quite* a reaction...

We all know Sam Faiers is one doting mummy to her son Paul.

The ex-TOWIE star – who gave birth in December – is smitten with her little boy, and constantly posts photos and videos of him on Instagram and Snapchat.

Of course, the majority of fans love seeing how Paul’s getting on, with recent comments including: ‘He is just the cutest,’ and: ‘Such a handsome little man :).’

But unfortunately for Sam, not everyone was entirely impressed with her most recent shot.

Last night, Sam took to Snapchat to share a picture of herself breastfeeding Paul in bed. She’d captioned the image: ‘Milk & bed ????.’

It was *this* Snapchat photo that caused a stir

Perfectly natural, right? And a gorgeous photo of mother and son.

However, some of her followers had a different opinion. One wrote on Twitter: ‘What are you doing on ur Snapchat [sic].’

Another said: ‘I’m all for women breast feeding in public but does Sam Faiers really need to put it on her Snapchat story.’

Hmm. Luckily for the 25-year-old, she also received plenty of support. One message read: ‘Why are people disturbed about a picture of Sam Faiers breast feeding? It’s a natural thing you morons ?.’


Another weighed in: ‘ snapchat story just made me so proud, making breastfeeding so normalised and beautiful¬†‚̧ .’

This isn’t the first time that Sam’s been criticised for sharing photos of herself breastfeeding online – but it doesn’t sound as though she’ll be stopping anytime soon.

She’s previously told OK!: ‘I think breastfeeding is the most natural thing a woman can do.


‘I totally disagree with people who say you shouldn’t do it in public. If your baby needs feeding then you don’t care where you are or what you’re doing.

‘I don’t think anyone should feel ashamed or feel the need to hide it.’

You tell ’em, lady.
