BTN STAFF

Serena Williams spoke with Time magazine about the difficult decision she made to stop breastfeeding her daughter. “I looked at Olympia, and I was like, ‘Listen, mommy needs to get her body back, so mommy’s going to stop now.’ ” she said. Williams, 36, admitted taking the advice from a male made the decision even more difficult. “You have the power to sustain the life that God gave her. You have the power to make her happy, to calm her. At any other time in your life, you don’t have this magical superpower. It’s absolutely hard to take from a guy. He’s not a woman, he doesn’t understand that connection, that the best time of the day for me was when I tried to feed her. I’ve spent my whole life making everyone happy, just servicing it seems like everyone. And this is something I wanted to do.” she explained. The tennis champ said it’s hard being a mother and having a career “I still have to learn a balance of being there for her and being there for me. I’m working on it. I never understood women before, when they put themselves in second or third place. And it’s so easy to do. It’s so easy to do.”
