Jessie James Decker Responds to Breastfeeding Backlash: 'It's Just a Boob!'

Jessie James Decker has no regrets.

The 28-year-old "Lights Down Low" singer is firing back at the backlash celebrity moms often receive for posting pics of themselves breastfeeding.

"I mean, it's just a boob!" Decker, who is mom to 2-year-old Vivianne and 7-month-old Eric with husband Eric Decker, tells ET's Deidre Behar. "I'm just feeding my baby, it's all good, calm down."

The country star is referring to a photo she posted last October of herself breastfeeding her newborn son.

"Love being a mommy and feeding my sweet boy," she captioned the sweet pic.

After receiving some hateful comments from Instagram users, some accusing her of posing the shot, she quickly followed it up with another, more revealing snap.

"Here's a closer look to those accusing me of 'posing' this," she captioned the second version. "Here's the shot I took before but thought was maybe too visual. Now I don't care. Enjoy #normalizebreastfeeding."

While she had no trouble calling out her haters, she admits she still finds it hard to understand the criticism moms face from posting these types of pics.

"I don't really understand how some celebs can go on the red carpet and their nipples are all out and it's cool, but if I want to feed my kids, I just think people like [to] complain about stuff," she explains. "We just all gotta look at the positive."

And positive thinking is exactly what keeps Decker going daily! The brunette beauty shares with ET that after giving birth to her baby boy last September, she hasn't rushed back to the gym.

"I just don't really like going to the gym that much and I love eating. I'm such a foodie. I love eating," she confesses. "I was telling my mom, if I had to choose a superpower, it wouldn't be to fly … it would be to eat anything I want and not gain [weight] because I freakin' love food so much. I do."

"I just didn't put that pressure [of going to the gym after birth] on myself," she adds. "I've said this in the past before, I'd rather focus on raising my new infant and spending time with my baby than thinking about my body, I think it's a little selfish."
