Free pizza for breastfeeding mom
Sometimes a stranger's support can make all the difference.
So many moms get so much flack for breastfeeding in public. Some get offended
, others are uncomfortable and even more astonishing, some are even disgusted. So it was a nice change of pace when a waitress at a pizza restaurant in Iowa gave this family a free pizza because she saw that mom, Jackie Johnson-Smith was breastfeeding her son and left the restaurant early so as to not disturb other customers.The grateful mom posted this picture to her Facebook page with the following explanation:
"I have breastfed three children... I have breastfed them in countless of places both pleasant and unpleasant, discreetly and out in the open. I have gotten many looks and stares, but tonight erases any negativity I have ever received. I ate at Fongs for the first time tonight. Having a fussy baby I nursed him for awhile in the booth and eventually left the table early as to not disrupt the restaurant. The waitress gave this receipt to my husband. I was speechless and emotional. Although I don't need a pat on the back for feeding my child, it sure felt amazing. It is amazing how we women can make each other feel when we empower each other.
I love it when mom's support each other in small ways like this! It's so refreshing from how judgemental some people can be.
