“I would LOVE to know how it is ‘the nastiest sh*t of her life.’ Breastfeeding is something that is natural and IS normal…”

Because breasts have been sexualised by society, the attitude towards breastfeeding have throughout the decades become divided.

“When one mum recently shared a photo of her toddler trying ‘breastfeed’ a doll, she was expecting a few likes and maybe a couple awws,” said a Scary Mommy story.

Despite wishing to protect her privacy by remaining anonymous, the offended mother sent a screenshot of her post as well as the rude comment to a Facebook page called “Breastfeeding Mama Talk.”

The original post shows her two-year-old daughter Charlotte in a shopping cart, lifting her blouse and pressing a doll to her chest.
