The (oddly) uphill battle of normalizing breastfeeding just got another soldier. New mama Masika Kalysha is catching a little heat after posting a photo of her nursing her newborn with ex, Fetty Wap, on Instagram. Kalysha covered up a touch with a tiny cartoon heart popped atop the areola area, yet still folks are catching feelings and sending shaming notices.  Maybe the words in this throwback article, “breasts are for breastfeeding,” bear repeating.


I thought I knew what love was but I had no idea. #KBM
