Snooki On Breastfeeding: 'I Love Nursing My Little Man' [UPDATED]

Posted: Updated:

When "Jersey Shore" star Snooki was pregnant, she admitted that she was reluctant to breastfeed. "It just looks so painful," the 24-year-old told GMA's Juju Chang. Pumps confused her too. "It's kind of like you're a cow, and you just milk it?" she asked.

But now that Snooki has given birth to Lorenzo LaValle, it looks as though she's overcome her fear. A fan on Twitter, who is a mother, photographer and knitter, took it upon herself to find out if the new mom is nursing. Snooki wasted no time in responding:

I love nursing my little man! “@_writersblock_: are you nursing?? If so SHOUT IT OUT PROUD!

At a time when women are constantly being shamed for breastfeeding in public, it's important to many nursing moms that public figures endorse the practice. For this reason, Cheri was quite pleased with the exchange.

Wow... Tweeted Snooki and asked if she was nursing to shout it out proud so younger ladies see and WOW. My inbox blew up after she said yes!

UPDATE: Snooki has retired fist pumping.
