Experts say that "breast is best." The following celebrity moms agree!
Tori Amos said: "An ounce of breastmilk is even more potent than the finest tequila."
Erykah Badu said, of her son, Seven: "When I first had the baby, I was breastfeeding for two years straight, so we were together for two years of his life – every day, all hours of the day. So I was two people, and I eventually morphed back into one. Now he’s part of me. He’s very independent as a result of it. I thought it was going to be the opposite."
Jodie Foster‘s son Charles is a big eater: "I just couldn’t stop losing weight with the breastfeeding. I ate as much as I possibly could, but I kept losing. You’ll see why when you meet Charlie. He’s a stocky guy."
Jerry Hall was photographed by Annie Leibovitz for Vanity Fair and Leibovitz’s book, Women, breastfeeding her son Gabriel.

Karenna Gore Schiff juggled her third year of law school, breastfeeding son Wyatt and working on her father’s 2000 presidential campaign. She’s very political about the subject, saying, "we have to do a lot more as a society to accommodate working mothers. Breast feeding in itself is a real challenge. I had this vision of breast feeding lounges or something. I’ve found that since I’ve had my baby I find that other mothers are the most helpful."
When Catherine Zeta-Jones had her son Dylan, she told OK! Magazine, "I’m going to do it as long as I can. …there is something so intimate about it. For that one hour or 45 minutes it’s just wonderful. It’s wonderful bonding and you know they’re getting these antibodies."
