BREASTFEEDING in public can be quite a daunting task for new mums.
And one mum in particular was shocked when a man complained about her breastfeeding and said that he didn’t ‘consent’ to seeing it.
The 26-year-old mum has taken to Reddit to share her story and is being praised for hitting back at the man in the best possible way.
She explained: “I am a new mom, so I’m pretty much exhausted all the time. I get barely any sleep, and honestly my body is just so tired.
“A couple months ago, one of my friends called me and my baby to go out, so I thought it’d be nice to take a day trip since I haven’t done it in so long.
“She also invited her bf and one of his friends.
“We spent the day in downtown and ate lunch in a nice restaurant.
“It was fun until my baby got a little fussy, so I decided to feed her.

STICK TO IT
“We were at a park area, so I just sat down on a bench that was relatively out of the way, and started feeding.
“My friend and the others were taking some pictures, so I kept our bags next to me to watch them.”
She then revealed what happened when one of the guys she was out with came over to her.
She said: “Her bf’s friend (L) decided to come over to grab something from his bag.
“When he saw me breastfeeding, he got sooo p**sed.
“He made a face and demanded I stop feeding because he didn’t consent to seeing my nipples.
“I apologized and said that I was sitting out of his view and I needed to feed my baby.
“He started insulting me and getting louder, and I got really embarrassed.
“I just got up and moved away until my baby was done and then I tucked everything back in.
“It was a bit awkward after that, and I just told my friend that I was going to go back home and left.”
The woman then later revealed that her friend that she was out with had a birthday party and she got invited.
She explained: “My friend recently turned 26, so she threw a little get-together.
“My mom watched my baby for me and I went to my friend’s house.
“She had a couple other people there, including her bf and L.
“When L saw me, he rolled his eyes and said “ugh, not you again.”
“But the party was fun, and my friend had a great time.
“Everyone was drinking except for me, because I still needed to go home and take care of my baby.
“L was pretty rude to me the whole time, but I avoided him.”

But you won’t believe what happened next…
She continued: “Soon, there was an arm-wrestling contest between the guys, and L lost to my friend’s bf.
“He started getting a little angry, and asked for a rematch. He then ripped his shirt off, and started flexing to prepare.
“I was honestly grossed out, and when he saw my face he asked me “what crawled up your ass?”
“I got a little mad and responded, “please put your shirt back on. I didn’t consent to seeing your nipples.”
“He said, “that doesn’t work because I’m a guy.”
“I asked him how it was different, and he just rolled his eyes.
“I was getting more angry now and just repeated, “please put your shirt back on.”
“It dissolved into an argument that ended with him calling me a b**ch, crazy feminist, and an uptight ahole.”
However, the new mum is now wondering whether she had done the right thing by confronting him over the issue.
Reddit users were overwhelming on the new mum’s side and stuck up for her for defending herself.
One person said: “How dare he make a comment about a woman doing something that we were literally made to do. They were made to feed our children and when used for that there is nothing sexual about it.”
Another added: “If the breastfeeding mom is comfortable, that’s all that matters.
A third commented: “It’s hilarious when people get offended when they see breasts being used for their intended purpose. Notice that the same man who censured you then turned around and used his breasts for sexual showboating – in public.”
