When it comes to breastfeeding, there is strong divide in what people think is appropriate. Too many people are quick to judge a mother who breastfeeds her child in public.
Recently a woman was verbally assaulted at Target for breastfeeding her baby. What has happened to people’s compassion? Breastfeeding is natural and a way for a mother to sustain her child’s life. We should all find that beautiful, not offensive!
One father agrees with me on this and filmed a very powerful video in which he highlights how it is ridiculous to tell breastfeeding mothers to “cover up”. Brock Smith made his case by putting a blanket over his head and trying to eat while at a restaurant. While it seems silly and the video will make you laugh, Brock is making a bigger statement.
He told Breastfeeding Mama Talk, “As a dad and a husband…I’ve had enough of this asinine argument. We are just so passionate about breastfeeding mom’s and the selflessness that the act calls for. For people to be ignorant enough to harass a mother trying to have a normal life while breastfeeding a child just infuriates us.”
