When a baby is hungry, they do not understand whether if it would be appropriate to breastfeed or not. Some mothers are shy when it comes to breastfeed their child in public, and some mothers are not. A mother, Trinati is belong to the group of mothers who are not shy.
Trinati is breastfeeding her 17 months old daughter whenever she feels her daughter is hungry. She doesn’t care if she is in public or not. As she is not shy about it, some people around her are not comfortable seeing Trinati breastfeeding her daughter. She occasionally gets strange looks, and sometimes people warns her.
As she had enough of warnings and weird looks, Trinate made her son take a picture of her while breastfeeding her daughter while waiting in the line at Costco, she shared, “I never shy away from providing my children with what they may need from me based on our surroundings.”
Her family and friends are asking questions to Trinati too, “How long are you going to do ‘that’ for?” she gets asked and she answers as, “As long as she needs me to!”
As she had enough about people thinking in a sexy way of her breasts, Trinati said in her interview, “Really? Have you SEEN breastfeeding breasts? My nipples are very far from looking like something someone may fantasize about! Ha!”
“These are basically udders right now. Get over yourself! I’m not trying to steal your man or lady with these bad girls! To me, they have become so far from feeling like a sexual part of my body. Right now they belong to my child for nourishment, both physically and emotionally.” the mother continued.
“I don’t expect all men or those who have never breastfed to understand the ways in which mothers have the endurance to deal with nipple-pinching or straight-up acrobatics while breastfeeding,” Trinati said, and added, “I have received the strangest glances and awkward giggles when people watch my 1.5-year-old standing on my lap while suckling … sometimes on one leg!”
“I had my son take that photo of us in Costco because I never want to forget (and [I want to] show my daughter in the future) the lengths we, as mothers, will go to when ensuring our kids are well looked after no matter the situation,”
In the caption of the picture, Trinati said, “My baby’s needs come waaaaaay before anyone else’s attempts to make me feel inappropriate for this sometimes-public act of nourishing and/or comforting my children,”
“Trust is a fundamental tool for developing healthy relationships and it begins with the care that we receive in childhood,” she continued, “For me, breastfeeding demonstrates this to my children, and for this reason, I will never feel shame for allowing a baby of mine to do this with me in any environment.”
