Breastfeeding is a personal choice. As a mother who has breastfed all three of her children, it’s about providing the best nutrition and vitamins for your baby and giving your baby the necessary and natural antibodies that will help fight diseases. But breastfeeding is not always looked upon in a positive manner, especially when done in public.
A Connecticut mom who was berated by a man for breastfeeding her baby while shopping in Target has shared a video of how staff and a customer came to her defense.
Jessie Maher, who lives in Canton, posted a video taken inside the Target at Torrington, showing herself being ‘verbally assaulted by an old man in Target for breastfeeding my baby’.
DUDE! No!!!…You’re RUDE! Screw YOU! This woman is feeding her baby in a public place which is a natural and beautiful thing to do. She was actually fine and probably enjoying her bonding time with her newborn, until YOU, the real idiot, came along and started making a REAL scene!
The man continues with his OWN rudeness and requests a refund because after all, why should anyone “have to” watch a woman breastfeeding in a public place? That’s right? Why should anyone have to tolerate this kind of behavior? But it’s NOT her behavior I’m talking about!
I agree, No One should be ashamed of feeding their own baby au naturale.
Hey DUD! Here’s an idea…If you don’t like it. Don’t watch!!! It’s THAT simple!!!
Target may not have the bathroom policy figured out, but they certainly are right on the breastfeeding!
