    Well it happened with my first child crying for breast milk in a very public place. I wasn’t so comfortable so I got a lil scarf to cover me up a bit with he suckled. Then boom! An elderly woman swiftly pulled off the scarf and she was yelling at me saying I should not suffocate the child. Never felt so embarrassed my entire life. Who is with me?

    Hmmmmmm it’s normal especially for first moms. I was doing a part time program when I gave birth to my first child. My first experience was in the school, my boy would not accept any form of petting and I was so ashamed of exposing my breast to breast feed him.Β  Awww, I moved from corner to corner searching for a hidden place when no one can see us just to breast my baby πŸ˜πŸ˜πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ it wasn’t funny though but it’s all joy
