original.jpgWe hear story after story after story of moms who are shamed for breastfeeding in public, often in restaurants. Now one nursing mom, Jackie Johnson-Smith, has had the exact opposite experience in an Iowa pizza parlor.
She shared her experience by posting a photo of her family's dinner receipt on Facebook:
I have breastfed three children... I have breastfed them in countless of places both pleasant and unpleasant, discreetly and out in the open. I have gotten many looks and stares, but tonight erases any negativity I have ever received. I ate at Fongs for the first time tonight. Having a fussy baby I nursed him for awhile in the booth and eventually left the table early as to not disrupt the restaurant. The waitress gave this receipt to my husband. I was speechless and emotional. Although I don't need a pat on the back for feeding my child, it sure felt amazing. It is amazing how we women can make each other feel when we empower each other.
