Mom Breastfeeding Son At Restaurant, Stranger Walks Up Grabs Her Plate

An older woman in a restaurant wins the award for best show of support for a breastfeeding mother, and no one even knows her name. The young mom posted an account of what happened to her in a restaurant recently, and she couldn't be more grateful for what this other woman did.

When you have a brand-new baby, you're on call 24/7. Briar Lusia Mcqueen was trying to get a breath of fresh air, so she took her son, 8-week-old Jaxon, out for the first time.

No sooner did the waitress set Mcqueen's breakfast down on the table, Jaxon began to stir and demanded a feeding.

Mcqueen began nursing Jaxon discreetly right there at the table and was aware of how many young mothers have been slammed for this perfectly natural act.

An elderly woman got up and approached the nursing pair, and Mcqueen feared that this was going to lead to an unpleasant confrontation.

“I was scared, thinking she was gonna tell me to put my boob away,” the mom wrote in her Facebook account.

Instead, it turned out to be a pleasant surprise. “What a good mama you are, we can’t have your food getting cold now can we?” said the elderly woman.

She then proceeded to cut up Mcqueen's breakfast with a knife and fork so that the nursing mom could have her meal while her son was eating.

Though it's absurd, a lot of people still expect the mother of a nursing infant to go sit on the toilet in public bathroom stall while her baby feeds.

This stranger accomplished three wonderful things with one simple act of kindness: she helped a young mother in a moment of need so she could eat a hot meal, she gave the mother the confidence to continue doing what she feels is right for her baby, and she showed how a little support for breastfeeding women everywhere goes a long way.
