Los Angeles: Actress Jaime King says there is nothing wrong if a mother breast feeds her child in public.

The “Hart of Dixie” actress, who has eight-month-old son James with husband Kyle Newman, claims she feels under pressure when she has to feed her child behind closed doors, reports

The 35-year-old said: "I think that it's ridiculous that it's okay to walk around with pasties or no clothes on, and that's fashionable and cool, but it's not okay to feed your child?

"Rihanna looked so epically stunning at the CFDA's the other night when I was there, and she was completely nude. And she looked beautiful. So why is there a problem for a woman to be nude nourishing her child?

"We all eat in public. I don't see why it should be frowned upon. Nothing about the way a mother feeds her baby should be frowned upon."
