Breastfeeding is supposed to be the most natural thing in the world so why is it that you get critisised for bottlefeeding, yet you get stared at and made to feel embarrassed for breastfeeding your baby in public?
Whether you choose to bottlefeed or breastfeed is a personal choice, but the practicality of doing so isn’t always straightforward. I thought I’d tell you a story:
I use public transport to get to and from work (bus) and unfortunately the time I catch my bus coincides with kicking out time at Mecca bingo. This means that I have the unfortunate encounter with the Biddie Brigade (no offense intended). This brood of old ladies seem to think that they can say whatever they like without offending people because they are old.
To get to the point:
I caught the bus as usual, and a very hassled looking mum got on with her young baby and a toddler in tow. The baby was obviously due for a feed and the mum asked the bus driver if he minded her feeding her baby on the bus. He said that it was fine. She started to feed and the bus went quiet, at which point this group of five ladies very loudly started to openly talk about what a disgrace it was that the woman was openly feeding her baby in public. By the end of the journey, the poor mum was almost in tears………………….
I think we all have a breastfeeding horror story, whether its your own or somebody else’s.
