(Bauer Griffin)more pics »Gisele Bundchen (Bauer Griffin)Gisele Bundchen breastfeeding comments made headlines yesterday, after the supermodel said there should be a law requiring new moms to nurse their children for six months. Many were quick to criticize the star, who just gave birth to her first son Benjamin in December.

To clear the air, Gisele took to her blog to explain that she's not actually trying to legislate -- she just thinks breastfeeding is important. She wrote, "My intention in making a comment about the importance of breastfeeding has nothing to do with the law.

"It comes from my passion and beliefs about children. Becoming a new mom has brought a lot of questions, I feel like I am in a constant search for answers on what might be the best for my child."
