Dad has a message for all the breastfeeding shamers out there.

Brock Smith shares his thoughts on the absurdity of shaming mums for breastfeeding in public in a video that was shared by Facebook page Breastfeeding Mama Talk.

In the video, the dad attempted to eat his food despite an obvious obstacle.

“I wish I didn’t have to eat with a blanket over my head,” he said on camera. “Maybe I should just go sit in the toilet?”

He told Breastfeeding Mama Talk that he and his wife are fed up with people who make mums feel as though nursing a child in public is something that should be hidden and deserving of backlash.

“For people to be ignorant enough to harass a mother trying to have a normal life while breastfeeding a child just infuriates us,” he said.

His video on Breastfeeding Mama Talk has been viewed more than 144,000 times.

“As a dad and a husband… I’ve had enough of this asinine argument,” he wrote.

Good on you dad!

    I think everyone should remind the breastfeeding shamers, that they were probably breastfeed in public when they were little!, when they start to harass a feeding mum.

  • He is not the first to make a video of this. In fact, this almost copies another one that has been around for years.

  • Breastfeeding in public has become such a huge issue lately. I don’t understand why! I’m glad there are men out there fighting against breastfeeding shamers!!

  • Good on him. I have been very lucky where I live. Not one person has “shamed” me for breastfeeding which is really good. It is normal people.

  • That certainly put the situation in perspective. I love his positive attitude towards breatfeeding. If there’s a Dad’s site similar to the site used mostly by Mumsmaybe he should put in on that too.
