Breastfeeding in public (or anywhere outside the house, for that matter), was once considered taboo.
The archaic belief that it was indecent and outrageous used to be the norm. Nowadays, however, people are more accepting of the act.
However, some people still remain stubborn in their belief that mothers shouldn’t breastfeed their babies in public.
Trending News Portal reported that Nerissa Velasco slammed a woman for breastfeeding her child inside a restaurant.
Her husband, Reijo del Prado, uploaded a picture of his wife breastfeeding their child accompanied by a long note.
Ok. Let me get this straight. Its a picture of my wife nursing my little one in public.”
“Some will say “teka dapat may cover!”, others will say “dapat dun sa banyo!” At yung iba “wala ba lugar dito para magpadede?!”
I’ll give you 3 questions to ponder.
A. Can you eat comfortably while being covered in the face all the time?
B. Can you imagine yourself eating in a public toilet?
C. Kung gutom na gutom ka na, at di ka makakain, ano pakiramdam mo?
Anyways, im just proud to see how my wife takes care of my little one.. Pleasant Evening!
Velasco decried the act and wrote, “Habang Kumakain Ka Sa Resto May Nagpapa Dede!! Tama Ba Ganitong Asal in Public Place?”
Of course, she received lots of responses from both sidesof the argument. Some agreed with her outdated beliefs while others said that it’s perfectly alright to feed a child who needs natural milk that can only be obtained from the mother.
