When Elizabeth Herzog gave birth to her adorable little baby, Georgia, the baby girl was premature, born at 32 weeks, which meant Elizabeth had to be careful not to cover her too much with a nursing cover due to the fragility of the baby. That’s why she didn’t even do it while breastfeeding him in a restaurant.
Those familiar with Iowa property laws know that it is perfectly legal for a mother to breastfeed her child in public. But some people really seem to disagree with this legal freedom. So when Elizabeth started breastfeeding her baby girl Georgia in a restaurant, the manager felt uncomfortable.
He walked over to her and patted her on the shoulder, then began to say nasty things that Elizabeth couldn’t bear. She needed to get out of this place. She had to!
Elizabeth is well aware that there is discussion about breastfeeding in public, but she hopes stories like hers will help other breastfeeding mums gain acceptance.
“I do my best and I realize that for some people it might seem a little weird and I realize that for some people it might shock them, but all I’m trying to do is breastfeed my baby,” WQAD says.
Well-chosen words that we think everyone will understand!
