Alyssa Milano isn’t letting anyone get her down about breastfeeding in public.

The actress often shares photos of herself breastfeeding on social media and has been a vocal advocate for nursing mothers. On Wednesday’s The Wendy Williams show, Milano, 43, found herself at odds with the show’s host, who has a different philosophy.

“I don’t need to see that,” said Wendy Williams, saying if it were her, she would go breastfeed her baby in the car.

Milano pressed Williams on the issue, asking why it was fine to show a picture of Miley Cyrus in a scantily clad outfit but not of a woman nursing.

Alyssa Milano has a lot on her plate, but now she will be able to clean that plate with a little style.

The mother of two partnered with Viva Paper Towels to create Viva Signature Designs that are available now nationwide. “They’re modern and yet classic at the same time,” Milano told PEOPLE while promoting the collaboration Tuesday at The Palihouse in West Hollywood.

Those new, chic paper towels will come in handy sooner than later for Milano. On Friday, she will be celebrating daughter Elizabella Dylan‘s first birthday — and it sounds like it might get messy.

“We’re just going to get her a smash cake and let her eat sugar for the first time,” she shares.

Alyssa Milano has been “overwhelmed” by the support she received after Tweeting her disappointment that her breastmilk was confiscated at Heathrow Airport for not complying with security measures.

“I don’t think I necessarily thought that it would create such an uproar,” the actress, 42, told PEOPLE on Thursday while speaking about her work with UNICEF’s Mother’s Day MOMents Fund, which provides gifts for mothers and children in need.

“I think that it just struck a chord and people ran with it,” Milano explains.

“I think that breastfeeding moms feel like what they do needs to be hidden, or not feel like they’re getting the appreciation that comes along with being a breastfeeding mom, and it meant something that someone was being vocal.”

Alyssa Milano is continuing to speak out about bottles of her breastmilk that were confiscated at the Heathrow Airport in London.

“I realize there are much larger issues going on in the world. And I don’t want to turn this into a bigger issue than it is but I will say this … breastfeeding my children has been one of the greatest joys of my life,” she tells PEOPLE in a statement.

“Every ounce of milk I’m able to produce for my child is nothing short of a miracle and to watch that milk be thrown away without any regard for my baby, was heartbreaking. It’s not the fault of the security in the airport; they’re following orders to keep us all safe. But I do I feel it is a policy that needs thoughtful reconsideration.  I’m glad this has started a dialogue. My only hope is to make things easier for moms, breastfeeding and formula feeding moms, everywhere.”

The actress first called media attention to the issue when she posted several Tweets about it on Thursday, including one where she wrote,”Why can you test my toiletries to make sure they are safe but you have to throw away my breast milk?”

Alyssa Milano‘s pot of liquid gold is running dry.

The actress found Heathrow Airport in London less than charming when her bottles of breast milk were confiscated while she passed through security.

Nine hours after admitting that pumping on a plane was “difficult,” the actress — mom to daughter Elizabella Dylan, 7 months, and son Milo Thomas, 3½ — took to Twitter again to express her upset when her hard work did not pay off.

“@HeathrowAirport just took my pumped breast milk away. 10 ounces. Gone. Not okay,” Milano, 42, Tweeted.

“They said they would let the pumped milk through if I had the baby with me. Why would I need to pump if I had the baby with me????”

Alyssa Milano Shares Sweet Breastfeeding Pic Before Appearing on The Talk

03/06/2015 at 08:50 AM ET

Alyssa Milano isn’t ashamed of breastfeeding and she doesn’t want you to be either.

The mother of two pulled a Gisele on Thursday, sharing a sweet pic of her nursing 6-month-old daughter Elizabella Dylan on Facebook just ahead of her appearance on The Talk.

“Make-up, hair in rollers, breastfeeding and being prepped by our producer for #TheTalk,” she captioned the shot.

This isn’t the first time Milano, 42, has posted a pic featuring her nursing her daughter. Last year, she responded to backlash from critics after she shared a similar shot on Twitter.

“I got really sad about it,” she said on The Talk in December. “Because … who are we, that now we get upset as human beings if we see a woman feeding her baby? It’s crazy to me. Crazy, crazy, crazy.”
