20 Something Moms 20 Something Moms

Someone told my 4 year old that NIP is wrong.

As we were getting ready to go out to eat tonight, my 4 year old said "Mommy, please take a bottle for Kimber to eat with tonight"  and I asked her why (because when I am with baby, she nurses.)  She said "Because I don't want you to go to jail for "bweast" feeding her".  She wouldn't tell me who told her, but I have a pretty good idea who it was.  Who really tells a 4 year old that their mommy could go to jail for breastfeeding...:(

I would have taken the moment to teach my child that you wont go to jail for it and that BF in public is normal and ok. Then I would tell my child that the next time they are told that, they should tell that person that they are silly and dont know what they are talking about. I might even make it a day trip to find all sorts of places where people public breast feed and show my child that its normal and how some babies eat.
