1. I just finished reading your post and it broke my heart. I have one son, who breastfed exclusively up until a year, but didn’t wean himself until about 18 months old. I breastfed in public when I needed to and always had a cover, and I feel lucky that I was never approached or berated by anyone in the same way that you were. It’s baffling that in this day and age there is some sort of stigma surrounding breastfeeding. I’m so sorry that you had to experience that. I think women need to start standing up for each other…not tearing each other down.

      Thank you so much Heather! I have vowed that I will breastfeed in public if I’m able to have another baby. I was so insecure about it and then this incident didn’t not help anything. I 100% agree with you! We need to build each other up. Each woman has something she is dealing with.

    Thank you for sharing. I, too, am so sorry that happened. Kind of makes me angry to even hear about it.

    Breastfeeding is natural and you’ve got so many other people’s support for doing it!

      I so agree! Breastfeeding is absolutely the most natural thing. If I have another baby I’ll definitely breastfeed in public with more confidence.
