A breastfeeding mum has been accused of spraying her breast milk at a woman who asked her to move while she fed her child in a park.
The encounter has prompted a furious row about breastfeeding after the woman who was ‘sprayed’ posted her story on a public Facebook group.
Writing in the group ‘Dartford Gossip page’, the woman said she was with her own child and ‘very easily distracted husband’ when she decided to approach the mum.
That was when the mum allegedly ‘squirted her boob’ at the complaining woman.
The anonymous woman wrote: ‘I don’t think it was necessary for you to react the way you did just because I asked you to go somewhere private, telling me to f*** off and squirting me with your boobs was incredibly uncalled for.’
However, her story was met mostly by disapproval as most people leapt to the defence of the mother.
One woman wrote: ‘I think there’s only one tit worth worrying about in this story and that’s the distracted husband!’
Guidance on the NHS England website tells mothers they should never ‘be made to feel uncomfortable about breastfeeding in public’.
Under the Equality Act 2010, it is illegal to ask a breastfeeding woman to leave a public place.
