Gisele Bundchen, carrying baby daughter Vivian Brady, arrives at Extra Virgin restaurant in the West Village in New York City

Gisele Bundchen is such a proponent of breastfeeding, she believes that all women should be legally forced to do it. "There should be a worldwide law, in my opinion, that mothers should breastfeed their babies for six months," the supermodel told Harper's Bazaar U.K. in 2010. Not surprisingly, she took quite a bit of heat from other moms and even the breastfeeding advocacy group La Leche League over the remark. "One mother doesn't have to be wrong so that another mother can be right," the group's executive director Barbara Emanuel told The New York Post shortly after Bundchen's comments were published. "There are lots of choices out there for women, and La Leche League respects those choices." Prior to that interview, Bundchen, who is now mom to 3-year-old Benjamin and 5-month-old Vivian, also caused a stir when she claimed to a Brazilian website that she had already potty-trained her son at 6 months, saying that after her morning and afternoon breastfeeding sessions she knew the little guy had to go and would hold him over the toilet. The early potty-training's official name is "elimination communication," and was also used by Bialik. It involves parents watching for signals from their tots and bringing them into the bathroom … before it's too late.
