How to respond when someone says breastfeeding is gross

Clever replies when you are told BREASTFEEDING IS GROSS

When you are breastfeeding your child and someone tells you that it is gross or you are told that you need to go and breastfeed your child in the bathroom it is probably because they are not used to seeing a woman breastfeed her child in public. People get their knickers in a knot about breastfeeding but there is nothing more natural than a mother feeding her child.

Some teens may feel uncomfortable seeing a mother with her boob out, and they may find it hard not to stare. After all, it could be the first breast that they ever have seen up close in the flesh. They may feel a little awkward and make a stupid remark.

With parenting no matter what you do someone will always have something to say about your choice. Many women go through a heart-wrenching time trying to breastfeed without success and find themselves bullied by the breastfeeding Gestapo, while others breastfeed in public and are told off by strangers. You can’t win with public opinion, you just have to do what’s right for you and your family.

Next time someone tells you that breastfeeding is gross, use one of our clever comebacks and make them think twice about what they said.
