Mom Is Angry To Breastfeed Standing Up In A Packed Train, As No One Offered Her A Seat
September 12, 2018
The 32-year-old mom from Essex, Kate Hitchens, raised a painful topic on her Instagram post, which is now deleted, about breastfeeding in public transport. Mother went angry and frustrated when she was forced to breastfeed her six-month-old son Charlie standing up in a packed train.
No one from the fellow passengers offered her a sit, even though Hitchens were struggling with the uncomfortable conditions. The baby was whiny at first demanding food, then he would pull the breast painfully as the train moved. On top of that, Kate felt embarrassed to expose more skin than usual to the strangers. She told MailOnline, she is always there for her son when he needs breastmilk. However, she uses a cover and tries to nurse him discreetly. In a standing position in a crowded transport, it seemed impossible.
