Kylie Padilla received mixed reactions from her followers last week, after posting a photo of her breastfeeding her son Alas inside a restroom.

Many of her followers were concerned that breastfeeding her son inside a restroom was unsanitary.

Kylie addressed the concern of her fans, and hoped for something good to come out of it.

The 25-year-old celebrity mom said, "I'm happy na it got that kind or reaction.

"In some way nakatulong siya for breastfeeding moms, and raise awareness to get more breastfeeding stations."

In an exclusive interview with PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal), Kylie recalled her own experience to emphasize the need for breastfeeding stations at the malls.

 "What happened was we were in a mall and yun nga, meron namang [breastfeeding station] sa mall na yun.

"But it was too far away, and nagwawala na yung anak ko.

"And saglit lang, he wants to feed for comfort or nauhaw lang siya.

"So I gave it to him for 10 minutes.

"There was a changing place there so pinalitan ko yung diaper niya.

"So the picture didn't say enough, e.

"Meron akong gatas, e, so ba't hindi ko ipapakain sa kanya?"

ALJUR DEFENDS KYLIE

Aljur Abrenica, in defending his fiancée's decision to breastfeed their son inside the restroom, in a way backed Kylie's proposition.

The Asintado actor said, "Yung sa breastfeeding na yun, I'm aware of it, sa mga comments.

"Ang masasabi ko lang, no one can really tell or judge someone on motherhood.

"Kasi lahat naman tayo may pamamaraan ng pag-aalaga sa bata, and I respect that.

"Yung ginawa ni Kylie, as her fiancé, wala akong problema dun.

"Kasi sa bahay, kapag nagutom yung anak namin, gutom talaga yan.

"Wala ka nang mapagpipiliang lugar."

The former Kapuso star noted that Kylie just did what she needed to do as a mother.

"It just so happened na habang nasa CR si Kylie nagutom yung bata.

"Hindi na kami... wala nang oras pa para, mag-check in pa kami o kung ano man ang gusto nila, yung comment nila na madumi o ano man.

"Ang sa akin, ginawa ni Kylie yung responsibilidad niya bilang isang ina so walang ano sa akin yun."

MOMMY LIEZL

Meanwhile, the couple and their son have been spending time with Kylie's mom, Liezl Sicangco.

Aljur expressed her gratitude to Kylie's mom for guiding and helping them take care of Baby Alas.

He told PEP.ph, "Dumalaw siya and napag-usapan namin ni Kylie na kung pupuwede mas magbigay siya ng panahon sa amin.

"Kasi taon na hindi niya nakasama si Kylie at yung apo niya.

"Parang one-year-old na nung nakasama niya si [Alas].

"So ngayon, nandun siya sa bahay and we're grateful, nagpapasalamat kami na ginagabayan niya kami, ipinagluluto kami.

"Nabigyan pa kami ng oras ni Kylie tulad ngayon, kasi may mapagkakatiwalaan kaming mapag-iiwanan si Alas."
