Free pizza for breastfeeding mom
Sometimes a stranger's support can make all the difference.
breastfeed (
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.
