Naomi Jael, from Germany, recently shared a snap of herself breastfeeding her 10-month-old son TJ at a friend’s wedding.
The 21-year-old shared the lighthearted photo on Instagram, which showed her breastfeeding TJ and laughing as she sat in her evening dress at one of the wedding tables.
‘When you are at a wedding, wear fancy dresses and high heels and your baby gets hungry, she wrote.
‘Whoever gets mad about this,’ she began, using a laughing emoji next to highlight her amusement at the situation.
‘I also fed my son at the church ceremonie IN the church. Here in Germany people don’t get mad about it [sic].
‘It is NORMAL. Nothing rude or bad about it. This is why I have breasts! Cause God gave me boobs for feeding my babies [sic]. ‘
Thousands have commented on the photo – either praising or criticising the proud mother for her photo.
‘I love this picture it’s beautiful/funny and truly just plain inspiring and it represents what breastfeeding should be. This picture just makes me want to be your friend lol,’ one woman wrote.
Breastfeeding provides the best nutrition for your infant. It has the right nutrients, vitamins and protein that your baby needs. It’s also very beneficial since it also provides antibodies to help your baby fight off viruses and bacteria.
As a mother who breastfed three infants, the benefits far outway giving your infants formula.
In addition, as a breastfeeding mother, Naomi Jael is absolutely right! When your baby’s hungry and you’re nursing, you stop what you’re doing and feed your baby!
For those who have a problem with mothers nursing in public, too bad. It’s not for your benefit it’s for the benefit of our babies. It’s one of the most natural things to do as a mother.
