Breastfeeding has been getting a lot of media attention. Moms and celebrities everywhere have been standing up for the natural feeding method — it’s what women have been doing since the beginning of time.
Unfortunately, there’s still a stigma surrounding breastfeeding, especially when it comes to breastfeeding in public. Moms all over the country get kicked out of public spaces for “exposing” themselves.
But babies need to be fed. A screaming, crying baby is not a happy baby — keeping them fed not only keeps them quiet, it keeps everyone else from getting frustrated and stressed out.
When one mom, Whitney, had to feed her son in the middle of a grocery store, she decided to write a funny poem about it on Facebook. This is what she said:
“Anytime. Anywhere. You can stare, I don’t care.
I’ll feed my hungry child, here or there, if you don’t like my boob I still don’t care.
A restaurant? A store? It’s boob juice galore!
A theater? A museum? But you’re more focused on trying to see them!
Bottle or boob it’s all just food.
You still think I should cover? You should run and tell your mother.
Pull out your phone and take a picture? But I’m the one who’s the problem?
Don’t you wish we could all mind our business? That would sure solve them!
Think I am disgusting? I could say the same?
Think I am playing an attention seeking game? You are wrong because you see, really I am only worried about the comfort of my baby and me!
– Sincerely Whitney, the bad*ss breastfeeder & bad*ss son fueled by purely boob juice.”
