When Ashley Kaidel posted a photo of herself breastfeeding in public, she was hoping to inspire other women who've been shamed for feeding their children. Little did she know just how many eyes she would reach!
With over 385,000 likes, Kaidel has certainly made an impact with her picture, which she says was taken in the middle of a crowded restaurant.
"It appears I'm staring off into the distance. In reality, I'm staring into the eyes of a woman staring at me," Kaidel, 24, wrote on Facebook.
"She is looking at me with disgust and shaking her head with judgement in an attempt to shame me and indirectly tell me without words that I am wrong and need to cover myself."
The mother-of-two goes on to say, "You should not ever feel shamed, belittled, embarrassed or wrong for feeding your baby the way nature intended. I do this for the person that has the mentality, 'Boobs are to be covered. They're for your husbands eyes only' … and any other derogatory, close minded comments and sentiments alike."
Do you agree with her stand?
