The moment i had been dreading since my little one arrived finally came yesterday.....
I had finally plucked up the courage ( inspired by the 'tramp' mother of rugeley england who was photographed breastfeeding her baby in public) to sit and feed my baby in a secluded corner of a restaurant. all was going well until a rude, ignorant, vile idiot told me i was disgusting and should leave. he didn't work at the restaurant so he had no authority to do so.
i used the two top method, one up and one down. you could of been looking through a magnifying glass and i doubt you would see anything undecent. but still a big fuss was made. going slightly red in the face with embarrassement i ALMOST just unlatched little man and went home. ut then i remembered the woman from rugeley who was labelled a tramp for feeding her child. her photo as taken an uploaded to facebook. she had been the subject of bullying and was finally making a stand, organising peaceful breastfeeding protests. the least i could do was take a leaf out of her book.
It really is a shame that in this day and age women are made to feel ashamed for giving their baby the nourishment they need. what do people think we have breasts for? surely people dont honestly beleive they are there purely for mens enjoyment? to be leered at and groped?
do people think we like having to get our breasts out in public? in the ideal world i would only ever feed at home. but the reality is when your baby is hungry they are HUNGRY! the fact that people would prefer a innocent helpless little baby to go hungry rather than them be fed the way nature intended truly disgusts me!!
