I'm very sorry this happened to you -- people can be so mean and insensitive.

That stinks, mama. I wish I had been there so I could nurse my almost 3 year old on the bench next to you and given them the finger (but only when the LOs weren't looking...)

Let's chose to believe that what you COULDN'T hear were their words of astonishment "LOOK at that lovely Mother nursing her young toddler while growing another beautiful baby in her womb! Good for her"

Right?
