Here we go again! The latest in the breastfeeding debate involves Ms. Kim Kardashian vs. a woman at a restaurant, who, apparently grossed Kim out ...
Even though she's the aunt to little 5-month-old Mason, apparently Kim can't stomach public breastfeeding, or so she said in a recent tweet: "EWW Im at lunch,the woman at the table next 2 me is breast feeding her baby w no coverup."
Then, Kim continues, things at the restaurant take a turn for the worst: "Then [she] puts baby on the table and changes her diaper."
OK, so the diaper on the table, yeah, maybe a little unappetizing. And the nursing without a coverup? I get how this could turn some people off (its why they invented nursing covers. Plus, a baby blanket, heck, even a napkin, works too!). But, I have to say, Kim's tone bugs me a little. She seems so quick to jump on a mom who was probably just doing her best to take care of her babe, you know? It's hard taking care of a baby (especially at a restaurant!).
My newish rule of thumb in life is to not knock it until you've been there. Let me explain: I had no clue how intense motherhood could be until I became a mom. I think women need to support each other more than we criticize each other. (Granted, I do believe that gals should cover up their boobies in public.)
Do you agree with my point here?
