Bekah Martinez is no stranger to speaking out about mom-shaming. It seems to be a right of passage for mothers in the spotlight who choose to share their journeys. She’s not shy about breastfeeding and all the things that come along with having little ones.
After going home in week seven on The Bachelor she met her boyfriend, Grayston Leonard. He was the reason she didn’t go on Bachelor in Paradise. The next year she gave birth to her first child. Recently, she shared a full album of her tandem nursing her toddler and newborn.
The mother-of-two shared some of the things people ask her on social media. One is, “How long are you going to breastfeed?” She wants to make it clear – there is nothing weird about nursing a two-year-old. Bekah said she would breastfeed as long as she could. Initially she’d said they would hold off to have another, but got baby fever fairly quickly.
