“Here's what's not going to happen, my baby and everybody else's baby who feeds from the breast is not going to go hungry because of the strange comments made when a woman decides to feed her child.

“If it is uncomfortable for you to look at a feeding baby that needs to grow, then perhaps YOU cover YOUR eyes or you get up and you walk away. I don't want to talk about how strange it is to not want to see a child feeding because we all know that in the beginning of your life you too had to suckle from your mother's breast,” she posted.
