There’s nothing wrong with breastfeeding your baby in public. It is every woman and child’s right. If you are a mother, you’d definitely understand that you’d be willing to do anything and everything just to ease your child’s hunger. That is exactly what this mom wanted to point out when a group of students called out on a woman for breastfeeding her baby in public.
A Facebook user named Angelique Candelaria took to Facebook to slam a group of students in BPI Tungko after slamming her co-mom in public.
According to her, these were the following words said by the students:
“wag kang tutulad sakanya na nagpapadede sa public, nakakahiya”
● NAKAKADIRI NAMAN YAN, DITO PA TALAGA?!
● Nakakalawlaw ng dede yan, Nakakalosyang!
● Pag ganyan walang pambili ng gatas yan (Powdered Milk)
● Laki laki na nung baby, dumedede pa. Pangit tignan!
●BASTUSIN YUNG MGA GANYANG BABAE EH
Candelaria, being a mother who also breastfeeds her baby, slammed the students and told them that nothing’s wrong with breastfeeding in public or not having a nursing cover when feeding their baby.
Apart from that, she also stated that breastfeeding a baby is not, and will never be disgusting for all that they are doing is feeding their baby who’s already hungry.
“Hindi din nakakadiri yung GATAS NG INA! Mas masustansya pa to kesa sa kung anong kinakain mo”
Candelaria also noted that there’s nothing wrong with breastfeeding a baby in public, the only problem exists in the people’s minds.
“BASTUSIN YUNG NAGPAPAKAIN NG ANAK? NAGPAPADEDE? KELAN PA? WALANG BASTOS SA GINAGAWA NAMING MGA NANAY, BASTOS YUNG MGA UTAK NG IBA NA KAYO NA NGA LANG NAKIKITINGIN MANGHUHUSGA PA KAYO! KAYO YUNG BASTOS!”
