Julie Bowen Breastfeeding Twins

Bookmark and Share

I love the ABC show Modern Family. It’s one of those rare laugh out loud shows that sometimes gives you a new perspective on your own foibles.  And my husband likes it, too. Plus, we went to college with one of the stars, Julie Bowen… so that’s kinda cool.

Anyway, all over the internet right now is buzz about Bowen breastfeeding her twin boys. She went on the show George Lopez earlier this week and even shared a photo of her doing the double football hold.  Very impressive. Here’s what she had to say (from The Huffington Post):

“It’s like two little liposuction machines on you,” she said. “They suck the fat out of you. They call it the ‘double football hold.’ You hold one here, and here [gesturing to her breasts], like two footballs… They’re doing God’s work right there, helping me return to my birth weight.”

The Fox News website actually has a poll, asking people if they think Bowen “went too far” sharing this photo.  Go vote.  And here’s the pic. (ok, I’m still trying to upload it.  I’m working off WordPress now, after switching from Moveable Type. Still trying to work out the kinks here).
