Pregnant Teresa Palmer Has Been Breastfeeding for Nearly 8 Years Straight
Get her a comfortable chair, a nursing pillow and the highest of fives. Because in honor of World Breastfeeding Week, Teresa Palmer is opening up about her journey.
The Lights Out actress—who announced earlier this year that she was expecting her fourth child with husband Mark Webber—recently shared that she has been breastfeeding for seven and a half years straight, since the couple welcomed their first child, Bodhi, in 2014.
“Today is day 2728 of breastfeeding straight,” the 35-year-old actress captioned her Aug. 3 Instagram post. “I have nursed since Feb 17th 2014 when my first son was born. I nursed him into toddlerhood through the pregnancy of my 2nd son, embarked on a tandem nursing journey for a year. I then continued nursing my 2nd son through the pregnancy of my daughter, in to my second tandem nursing journey.”
Teresa, who in addition to 7-year-old Bodhi, is also mom to Forest, 4, and Poet, 2, added, “I’m now still nursing my daughter through this pregnancy and will jump in to my third tandem nursing experience in a matter of weeks.”
