Nursing mothers never have it easy when it comes down to feeding their children in public places.
This next story about a woman being barred from breastfeeding at a waterpark has left some netizens divided over what they think is alright.
One woman says she made her way to the waterpark with her loved ones because it was a planned family trip. The months of June and July are peak summer ordeals and she simply did not wish to stay at home, being a new mom.
She had a baby a few months back and now feels the time is right to understand that she should be spending leisure time in the outdoors or she might end up with post-partum depression. But what she encountered at the waterpark left her stunned.
Taking her newborn baby along meant she had to nurse him too. Hence, when he began to cry, she went into a little corner and decided to breastfeed. But to her dismay, the way the authorities treated her left a really bad taste in her mouth.
She claims to be far from the water and also made sure the milk did not spill and that there was nothing to worry about. People really had a hard time understanding the same, why was she banned from feeding a hungry child that needed his mom’s milk right away?
An entire crowd gathered around the mother from Georgia to see what the matter was all about. And it was simple. She was being restricted of her rights and that’s not something she was too happy about.
“How can they expect my child to go hungry, he’s so small”- she continued.
But the incident has left some netizens divided. They feel that waterparks are not the best place for feeding children as there are so many people in the vicinity and it just does not look right to openly nurse in front of them.
Others commented on how the woman should know better and perhaps requested a private room such as a baby’s changing area before just assuming it was going to be alright. What do you think?
