(Newser) – Like a recent convert who can't help proselytizing, new mom Gisele Bundchen is touting the benefits of breastfeeding, In fact, the Brazilian supermodel wants "a worldwide law that mothers should breastfeed their babies for six months," reports the Guardian. In an interview with UK Harper's Bazaar that isn't available online, Mrs. Tom Brady says, "Some people here in the US think they don't have to breastfeed, and I think: 'Are you going to give chemical food to your child when they are so little?'"
