She's standing up for angry moms everywhere

Among the plethora of controversies that are being discussed every day is the age-old debate about breastfeeding in public. Groups on either side argue about whether or not moms should be forced to go into a bathroom stall, cover their chest, or have the right to do whatever they want.

According to the Huffington Post, almost every state in the U.S. has a law that allows public breastfeeding. However, that doesn’t cover what can be done inside of a private establishment. That also doesn’t cover what ordinary citizens will do or say to a mom just because they don’t like what she’s doing.

Nicolle Blackman needed to feed her two-month-old son Cameron, so she did breastfed in the farthest corner of a McDonald’s in Federal Way, Washington on September 2. Despite the restaurant being nearly empty, another couple took a seat quite close to Nicolle and her family. Soon enough, that couple would intrude upon Nicolle over a completely natural biological function.
