World Breastfeeding Week 2016- Feeding in Public

You feel hungry while in public, you buy a sandwich and walk away eating. A little baby who can’t even express feels hungry when in public, somehow lets his/her mother know that he/she is hungry. The mother sits on a bench and starts breastfeeding the baby and You stare!! You say she should have some shame. You give disgusting looks to a mother who is feeding her hungry baby. It is fine to eat wherever you want but there are rules for babies. Babies should not eat in public. Babies need to learn to control their hunger till they reach back home or learn to eat in a public toilet so that no one gets to have a look at their mom’s boobs. It is so tempting to look at a cleavage but disgusting and vulgar if side of a boob of a feeding mom is seen. You have double standards. Stop looking if you don’t like it but my baby will get his food whenever and wherever he wants. 

Help babies get healthy food on time by supporting breastfeeding. It is the mother and her baby’s choice to cover or not while feeding so stop judging. Try having your dinner today inside a blanket without lights. We are destroying the environment for our next generations to come, atleast give them the right environment and support to feed completely naturally for first few months of their lives. 

A humble request from a mother who has been given looks while she fed her baby in public places- Please stop making the mother uncomfortable while she is feeding her baby, it affects the child. Let these tiny human beings live peacefully and keep them away from your logics and norms of the society.
