Breastfeeding is a natural thing but for some, it is a little bit awkward. Society has always found breastfeeding vulgar and offensive for some. Recently a woman posted a picture of herself breastfeeding her child and other.
A friend of Rebecca Wanosik’s — from Missouri, US — reached out to her to ask if she could breastfeed the newborn daughter of a woman going into surgery, and for Wanosik, it was an immediate yes.
The 29-year-old later posted the story on her Facebook page, urging people to normalise breastfeeding along with pictures of the 5-month-old and her own 8-month-old son holding hands capturing an adorable moment.
In an interview with people she said, Someone called me a pedophile, someone said, ‘Oh, can you feed me next?’ People said some really hateful things. It was awful.
