I can’t help but notice a lot of videos surfacing on social media where the occasional stranger decides to shame new mothers for breastfeeding in public.
That’s why it’s so uplifting to see people who truly understand the trials of early motherhood. And one post on Facebook has tons of people feeling the same way.
Briar Lusia Mcqueen was out eating breakfast with her 8-week old son named Jaxon. While she was enjoying her breakfast and a hot chocolate, Jaxon started crying. The little baby was hungry, and Mom knew just what he needed. She began to breastfeed her son.
Minutes later, an older woman approached Briar. Having seen so many negative reactions to breastfeeding in public, she was prepared for the worst. However, what the lady did next completely took her by surprise. She stopped dead in her tracks.
Read on below to find out what happened.
“Just wanted to share this really sweet moment I had this morning.
Today was the first time I went out for breakfast alone with my 8 week old son.
I had just received my breakfast and hot chocolate when Jaxon started crying wanting his booby so of course I fed him.
After a few minutes this older lady walked up to me, I was scared, thinking she was gonna tell me to put my boob away.”
“Instead she starts cutting up my breakfast for me and said ‘what a good mama you are, we can’t have your food getting cold can we’.
I honestly could have cried loveliest lady EVER!!”
The Facebook post ended up brightening the day of thousands of people as it ended up getting liked over 308,000 times, shared over 11,000 times, and commented on over a whopping 14,000 times.
I love what this older lady did for this mother. Don’t you? Let us know your thoughts in the comment below.
