Love Island's Camilla Thurlow Hits Back At 'Classless' Comment On Breastfeeding Snap

Love Island's Camilla Thurlow Hits Back At 'Classless' Comment On Breastfeeding Snap

Camilla hit back after negative comments on her Instagram Stories.

Love Island's Camilla Thurlow has hit back at trolls after comments made on one of her Instagram Stories.

Camilla, 33, who welcomed her second child Nora in May, shared a photo of her breastfeeding her daughter online, but according to the former islander, someone commented via DM to say the post was 'classless'.

Hitting back on Instagram, Camilla said: "I shared this on my stories earlier and someone sent me a message saying how ‘classless’ it was.

"It’s easy to end up sharing the highlights of parenting on here, but between the pretty reels are many moments, like this, that are part of the reality.

Camilla was shocked at the comments.

"Like feeding in carparks, or pumping in bathroom stalls or using the five minutes you had for a cuppa to sterilise bottles. There are the days when you leave an hour early (despite getting no sleep) to try and time feeds right so your baby is settled for a meeting. Or stay up late when you’re utterly exhausted to wash your pump parts before work tomorrow, or try to screw a bottle top on one-handed whilst rocking a pram so you don’t disturb anyone.

"There’s constant planning, and prepping and admin that you do to try and make things work for everyone (usually while trying to make it look easy at the same time), and then there’s enduring the critical looks when inevitably one day it doesn’t quite go as smoothly as planned despite all the effort you’ve put in."

Camilla explained she had posted the story hoping others would relate, adding that parents don't need the 'added job' of dealing with trolls, too.

"I put that story up thinking there would be so many parents in a similar position today - feeding their baby, multi-tasking and making things work - because that’s the reality and it’s important to share that and not just the perfect moments," she continued.

"And tbh I think if you don’t like seeing a baby being fed - either by bottle or breast, whether in real life or on here - you need to grow up, because we don’t need the added job of trying to work around you too. Let’s leave the business of behaving like a baby to the babies."

Well said, Camilla!

Meanwhile, fellow Love Island star Jess Shears also spoke about a similar issue last week.

Jess, 29, criticised 'gross men' for commenting on a recent breastfeeding snap. The mum-of-two welcomed her second baby boy last month with husband Dom Lever, whom she met on the dating show back in 2017.

Posting on social media last week, she said: "Why must gross men comment inappropriate things on images of women breastfeeding.

"It's actually disgusting. It's such a beautiful incredible thing that women's bodies can do and you should be able to post about it without getting gross sleazy comments."
