Washington, Aug 4 (ANI): First-time-mother and supermodel
Gisele Bundchen has clarified the comments she made regarding breastfeeding.

In the U.K. version of Harper’s Bazaar she said: “There
should be a worldwide law … that mothers should breastfeed their babies for six

But later she took to her website and was found responding
to critics and moms who reacted angrily to her quotes.

“My intention in making a comment about the importance of
breastfeeding has nothing to do with the law,” People magazine quoted her as

“Becoming a new mom has brought a lot of questions, I feel like
I am in a constant search for answers on what might be the best for my child.

In her blog, Bundchen said she regretted that her statement
sounded so “black and white.”

“I am sure if I would just be sitting talking about my
experiences with other mothers, we would just be sharing opinions. I understand
that everyone has their own experience and opinions and I am not here to
judge,” said the supermodel.

“I believe that bringing a life into this world is the
single most important thing a person can undertake, and it can also be the most
challenging,” she added. “I think as mothers we are all just trying our best.”

The 30-year-old model gave birth to baby
Benjamin Rein with husband Tom Brady last December. (ANI)
