A mum told to go to the restroom to breastfeed her child has called out society’s absurd double standards to boobs in the best way.
While shopping, mum Wittney Hope’s little one grew hungry. Eager to feed her baby, she found a secluded area to look after her. However, despite the fact she was covered up, the customer service employee told her she could not do “that” there and asked her to go to the bathroom to continue the feed.
“I was completely shocked as I have never had anyone comment on me breastfeeding in the whole 18 months I have been nursing, yet alone another woman, possibly a mother herself,” wrote an upset Wittney in a Facebook post.
And after a disgusted Wittney asked the employee for her manager's details so she could lodge a formal complaint, she left the store, but not before something caught her eye.
“As we were leaving the store I passed by this advertisement for bras,” she wrote. “I mean seriously, the lady's face is not even in this. Why is it acceptable for a giant picture of BOOBS to be on the wall but I cannot feed my child?”
