"Perfect happiness @latitudefest This is what my body is made for. And the rest is my choice," the actress captioned the photo.

All this comes after critics have shamed her for publicly breastfeeding and posting it on social media while others feel her son is too old to be breastfed.

Meanwhile, the World Health Organisation, officially recommends mothers breast-feed until three years of age. Even the American Academy of Pediatrics recommends mothers also breast-feed 'at least until one year of age and then as long as baby and mother mutually want to.'
