When Bekki Matthews shared this photo to Facebook she never expected to receive so many disrespectful comments.

Remember this photo that caused quite a stir?  A surprising four years later and Bekki from the US is STILL defending her image.

She added a comment to the original photo shared in May 2015 letting people know her response to their constant abuse and ridiculous replies.

Her original post read – “Oh you know… Nursing the kid in between innings #normalizebreastfeeding #itsjustaboob”

Bekki followed up on her post later adding, EDIT: for the haters…. A year later ????????????

1. He was only a year
2. He started walking at 8 months
3. The person standing behind the fence with him is his baby sitter.
4. I was up to bat in 3 hitters. So I couldn’t go get him and it was unsafe to bring him around.
5. The fence was over 6ft… I’m only 5’1 so there was no handing the child over the fence
6. The fence did not hurt
7. Germs? He was eating dirt prior so possibly why he wanted some milk to wash it down.
8. For attention? No. My screaming child who wanted to comfort nurse for a short while was causing more attention than me nursing him through the fence did.

I think those are the main points people try to bring up.

The hashtags are the best things ever! #stilljustaboob #yourcommentsdontdefineme #shamingisntcutebooboo #leavematittyoutyomouth

  • They’d be carrying on if she gave him a bottle too. People can’t mind their own business.

  • I don’t know why people feel the need to make negative comments just keep it to yourself.

  • Why keep bringing it up. I’ve seen a lot worse since then but if you don’t want to be criticized about it why repost. It is what it is

  • Never saw it the first time. Do it, fine. Your choice. But sharing it again??? Why?

  • Never saw it. Now that I have… well it is a weird way to feed your child. Surely she could have taken the kid over the fence.

  • Never saw the original. I guess that was the best of the situation! As always these pics are best NOT shared on social media!

  • It’s up to her to do what she wants to do, but if you don’t want trolls and ‘haters’ replying to you then don’t put the image in Facebook in the first place.


    • Maybe she loves to provoke a little and loves the replies and attention ?



      • Do hope not – that belittles the breastfeeding brigade.

  • Personally I think it’s a bit strange. Why not bring the child round to her?

  • It looks uncomfortable for mum, but if she doesn’t have. Problem, neither do I.
