"If you see something, say something." Unless it's a woman breastfeeding in public, in which case it's best to mind your own beeswax. Take it from Avery Lane, a mom from Georgia who was recently breastfeeding her 2-month-old baby at an H&R Block when the store manager came up to her and asked: "can you cover up with a towel or something?"
Luckily, Avery Lane came back with this perfect response: "No but I have a muslin if you would like to cover your face," she said, and then retold in a Facebook post, which has gone viral.
"You must not know Georgia's breastfeeding laws," she added. And the manager clearly didn't. So Lane, who lives on a military base, called the Military Police for backup. They showed up and told the manager he couldn't kick her out of the H&R Block, even though she was just there with a friend.
"Also one of the MPs told me that there is nothing wrong with a mother breastfeeding her child," Avery wrote. True that.
Lane shared the story along with an adorable photo of her breastfeeding her baby on Facebook, and her post has now been shared nearly 10,000 times.
Thousands of people have commented, with the response overwhelmingly supportive of Avery's right to breastfeed her child in public. You know, because it's legal and also a VERY NORMAL thing to do.
Sing it with me, everybody: Babies need to eat (eat eat eat eat). Mamas need to feed (feed feed feed feed). And anyone who has a problem with that can SHAKE. IT. OFF.
