Michigan Woman Called Out For Breastfeeding In Public
Ok...alright...I guess I can understand how someone might be put off at the sight of a woman breastfeeding in public. In the first place, it's not something you see everyday so it may come as a bit of a shock. It has to me. Then there's the issue of seeing an actual breast being nursed which is also something you don't often see. But it's a natural thing and with some modicum of modesty should be something that's accepted.
According to WNEM , a mom was breastfeeding her 7-month old son at a California Pizza Kitchen over in Portage Creek and was asked to cover things up. Ashlie Hanel said she was being discreet but was asked by an employee to get a napkin or she'd get a towel. She decided to stop nursing and leave and when she did she got shamed by some of the people in the restaurant. She was hurt by it and decided to contact management and , of course, put it all on Facebook.
Breastfeeding in public is protected by law in Michigan and 47 other states and in my opinion shouldn't be considered a big deal. It's good for the baby so let your freak flags fly. Get the whole story by clicking HERE.
