TV Host Stands By Her Decision to Breastfeed 30-Month-Old Son Despite Vicious Custody Battle

We all know that breastfeeding is one of those hot button issues when it comes to motherhood. Everyone seems to have an opinion. Moms are shamed if they don’t breastfeed and those that do are often slammed for not doing it enough or letting it go on for too long.

For Rehab Addict star Nicole Curtis her decision to keep on breastfeeding her 30-month-old son Harper has actually become the focal point of a bitter custody battle between her and her ex Shane Maguire.

The TV star discussed this at length in an Instagram post back in August. At the heart of the case is that Curtis is still exclusively breastfeeding their son and the little boy’s dad is reportedly accusing his ex of using that to prevent him from getting time with the toddler. (The 54-year-old has been awarded visitation two days a week.)

Curtis hinted at the battle in her Aug. 26 saying that her breasts were “discussed in an open court room” and that she had been ordered, “to pump rather than feed my baby the only way he knows how.”

Now the 41-year-old mom-of-two is fighting back and sharing her side of the story.
