What the heck Kevin? We’re at the pool, and I’m nursing my son to sleep, under towels, so he doesn’t get distracted. He is fighting it but almost asleep when this guy, maybe in his 40s comes to me and says ”Excuse me, are you breastfeeding your baby?” I say “Yes?” And he looks at me all serious and mumbles “I don’t think you should be doing THAT here!”
OMG. I was about to stand up and punch him, but his mother stands up right behind him – she is in her 70s, small skinny woman – and she was furious. She was like “WHAT DID YOU TELL TO THAT MOTHER, KEVIN?” And he was about to repeat it when she exploded – “I had no idea I raised you like that, Kevin!! I am not talking to you until you apologize!! I breastfed you until you were 18 months, Kevin!” And he says “But you never told me that, mom!” Then she explodes again “WHAT’S THERE TO TALK ABOUT, it is normal, Kevin!!!”
Then Kevin apologized. It’s been 15 minutes, and she is still not talking to him. Now I feel bad for him.
