Mothers who need to feed their child find really awkward to breastfeed them in public. I really petty those women who get stuck in the situation where they need to think twice to feed their own babies. One such mother Margaret Ellen Bradford who at an event in Ohio, feeds her 6-year-old Harper publically.
Check out about the actual matter.
Margaret Ellen Bradford just like another mother took her 6-year-old daughter Harper to Bernie and Jane Sanders rally in Bernie, Ohio last week.
There in the rally when she found Harper hungry she breastfed her standing in the second row just a few metres away from Sander, in the middle of cheering crowd.
Amidst of all, one of the photographers captured her picture and so shared the picture on Facebook which after a while went viral.
Margaret says, "There is no 'I'm feeding you in 10 minutes. It's 'I'm feeding you right here, right now, or you're screaming". For her or everyone I suppose, a hungry toddler is a hungry one.
Margaret also mentioned that after the event Bernie and his wife thanked her for the way she acted in the rally as she did absolutely right on her part as a mother. She just took care of her daughter just like other mothers regardless of the place.
After this incident Margaret received a lot of praise but alongside she receive quiet hate mails and death threats that actually frightened her. One of the hateful message that she received, "Your daughter should be taken away".
Bradford added that the no breastfeeding like this should be unheard in 2016 and so society needs to catch up the biology.
Bradford urged other mothers to share their pictures of breastfeeding like this alongside the hashtag #BoobsForBernie to support it. Also, Sander's campaign tweeted their support of Bradford.
