Nursing one’s child is a completely normal practice. Health professionals recommend that it starts during the first hour of a baby’s life and to continue as often as the baby wants. However, there are still people who are offended by witnessing breastfeeding in public places.
During the first few weeks of a baby’s life, they tend to nurse about every two to three hours, which makes nursing in public inevitable for most mothers. Unfortunately, Avery Lane found herself being criticized for feeding her newborn at an H&R Block.
However, Lane was well aware of her rights and had the perfect response to shut down this man who clearly can’t handle the sight of a mother feeding her child.
Unfortunately, women being shamed for breastfeeding in public is too common of an occurrence and Avery Lane is one of the latest to come forward with her experience.
Lane was visiting a local H&R Block on a military post and was nursing her 2-month-old when the manager came over and rudely asked, “Can you cover up with a towel or something?”
Lane was completely shocked by the inquiry but knew all too well that what she was doing was completely fine and retaliated in the best way possible.
In response to the H&R Block manager, Lane stated, “No but I have a muslin if you would like to cover your face. You must not know Georgia’s breastfeeding laws.”
