When Ceara’s husband was chosen to be the best man at a friend’s wedding, the couple was very excited. They were in the process of making the necessary arrangements to be present on the big day when they received their invitation. This shouldn’t have been a very big deal at all. All they needed to do was fill out their RSVP card and be on their way, right?

Ceara was pregnant when the invitation arrived. When she took the time to read it, she couldn’t help but notice that there was a message included that seemed to be aimed directly at her. The note let her know that mothers who would need to breastfeed during the ceremony would be given a secluded area to do so. This passive aggressive message did not sell well with Ceara.

After all, why should anyone have to take their breastfeeding to a far off location? While the note professed to be accommodating, Ceara perceived it as more of a passive aggressive attack. We are inclined to agree. When a child is hungry, they should be able to receive nourishment without any sort of hassle. Ceara’s initial response to the request was not favorable.

Once she took a step back and thought more about the situation, she realized that this was the couple’s special day. She did not agree with their decision. But she also realized that it was their right to make the choice. She decided that she would leave her babies with a sitter for the special occasion. Ceara missed them terribly, but she decided to persevere.

She became enraged all over again when she took a look at the “breastfeeding” area. The area was located in the bathroom and consisted of little more than some chairs outside of the stalls with a few blankets mixed in. She made a meme of the photo and it soon went viral. In her mind, an adult doesn’t eat their meals in the bathroom. So why would a baby?

Facebook page “Breastfeeding Mama Talk” had to say this regarding the viral note:

 

Ceara did not want to cause a stir at the wedding of her husband’s best friend. The stigma that still exists when it comes to breastfeeding in public continues to exist though. If you are someone who still finds the idea of a woman breastfeeding in public to be appalling, then guess what? This says a heck of a lot more about you than it does them!
