Having kids is not easy. Especially for moms, when their newborn babies have not been weaned, they have to spend more time with them and breastfeed them anywhere they are hungry. Breastfeeding discreetly is okay, but breastfeeding in public (breastfeeding in front of a relative or friend in your own home, or in a public place, such as a cafe or shopping center – just to name a few) is unacceptable at times.
Like the man in this story below, he didn’t like the way his sister was breastfeeding her kid. As he described, his sister breastfed whenever she went, in front of him and his wife and their parents as well. Therefore, the man told his sister to breastfeed at his wedding. Now, he wonders whether what he did was wrong or right. As a result, he came to the r/AmItheAsshole subreddit to ask members of this group “AITA for calling out my sister for breastfeeding at my wedding?” Are you curious to know what they said? Scroll down to check out the entire story and the thoughts of Redditors below. Also, feel free to share your opinion with us in the comment section below.
This is how the story begins:
You might choose to breastfeed just in the places where you feel most at ease during your baby’s first few days. However, as you become more accustomed to doing it, you’re probably going to feel more comfortable breastfeeding in public when you’re out and about. They must be prepared to feed their children wherever they are, especially when they scream for food. Therefore, breastfeeding mothers are superwomen. Even if they are busy with one of the most significant days of their lives, they must drop everything and report for duty when it comes.
Breastfeeding is very good for newborn babies, says the American Academy of Pediatrics. Since breastfeeding provides them with the ideal combination of nutrition and antibodies. According to a research cited by the pro-breastfeeding organization La Leche League, babies who received breast milk had a lower risk of allergies and asthma than those who did not. Skin-to-skin contact promotes emotional well-being and the mother-child relationship. Because of these numerous advantages, a lot of moms are committed to breastfeeding their children. Finding a cozy, encouraging area to nurse can actually assist. For some women, learning to breastfeed might be difficult. Here are simply the top five recommended nurse-friendly locations.
Here’s what Redditors had to say. And most of them agreed that he was a jerk for calling out his sister for breastfeeding at his wedding.
