Breastfeeding is one of the most natural parts of life but many people still have some issues with it.
An unnamed husband recently shared online how his parents made a surprise visit while his wife was in the middle of breastfeeding their baby.
The woman was left in tears after her father-in-law made ‘gross’ remarks about her breasts, leaving her uncomfortable and upset in her own home.
Writing on Reddit, the husband said: “On Friday night my parents dropped by our house on short notice. We weren’t really prepared for them but we let them in any way.
“My wife was sitting in a chair in our living room breastfeeding our son when my dad walked in. He did not see anything other than my wife’s boob (not nipple), but based on that he decided he had to comment so he told her that he could see why his grandson was so well fed.
“Then when my mom walked in he told her something like ‘we don’t have to worry about John starving by the looks of it’.”
He continued: “My wife is very insecure about her body post-baby, so she was very upset and in tears.”
The husband also said that he asked his father to apologized, and he did. But after a few days, he discovered that his wife had sent her FIL a message, “raking him over the coals for what he said and telling him he was a pervert, disgusting and she didn’t want him in her home again for a long time.”
He also said that he knows his father was an ‘as*****’ for his remarks but also thinks his wife was wrong for bringing it up again after his father had apologized.
One person commented: “My jaw actually dropped when I heard what he said. What a disgusting thing to say. Absolutely sexual harassment.”
Another wrote: “I was expecting it to be some stupid comment about how she should cover-up, which is ridiculous too, but his comments were disgusting. The wife should never feel uncomfortable in her own home.”
