I hope this is OK to post about here.

Do you know those 'spotted' pages on Facebook?

Someone posted a pic of a mother breastfeeding, calling her a tramp for feeding her baby just because the sun was out.

Why, why, why?! Why would a pic like that even be allowed to be put on with such a derogatory comment and without the mothers permission for the photo to be taken in the first place.
Its so upsetting that some random person had taken pics of her and splashed them all over fb.

I don't know if she knows its on there or not.

But why do people really think its OK to name call a mother feeding her child.

Its made it on to BBC news - the mother knew and asked for help. Looks like she's going to get it with a mass nurse-in ' in the area!

Exactly.

Hopefully the mass breastfeeding stage in will raise awareness.

Those spotted pages are so terrible sometimes - you get so much bullying, spitefulness and general negativity. They need to be moderated better. Or closed.
