Mom Breastfeeds Her Baby Amidst A Family Holiday Dinner

Well, what we are going to talk about something today which is very common. Most of you might be nursing moms who must be feeding their kids right irrespective of thinking about their body figure unlike celebrities or not caring about the location where they can feed their baby. When it comes to baby, who cares all that as they are more important than anything else. But it’s not easy for breastfeeding moms to do this while they are attending a family dinner because they are judged for that and this wrong I guess.

I mean why should someone comment on this thing whether she is feeding her baby in public (family gatherings) or what she is doing? If you have concerns like this, Mom Mellisa Ostroth has answered all the questions which nursing mamas hear at the holiday dinner table.

Ostroth cleared that she hadn’t faced something like this but she would like to share the stories heard from her client. Have a look

The mom of two tells that she had a family member that tells her what to eat and what not to eat while breastfeeding to which she replied why can’t a nursing mom enjoy the holiday fun and breastfeed her baby in a different room.

She took this to her Facebook Page, Milkivity and shared some infuriating things breastfeeding moms have to deal with hearing during family dinner like

“Isn’t your baby too old to be breastfeeding?

Your baby is breastfeeding again you must not be making enough.

You better not eat the green beans it will make your baby gassy.

You can’t drink that glass of wine while breastfeeding.

You’re weaning soon right?”

To this, Ostroth replied, “Uhhh no [hand wave emoji].” She paired this bold thought with a picture of her proudly breastfeeding her toddler in front of a Christmas tree.

Ostroth explained that it is really very hard to breastfeed your kid during the family holiday

“During the holidays, when mothers are getting together with family and extended family, they tend to hear lots of unwanted advice, which is OK, but it’s when they pressure a mother and try to change the way they chose to parent that it becomes a problem,” she explains. “It’s very stressful for many.

“I have mothers tell me all the time about the anxiety they are having over some of the things I’ve mentioned in my post and how to respond to it,” she adds.

She wants to remove the stigma from the minds of women

Saying all this she wants to convey a message to all the nursing moms that breastfeeding during the holiday table with family gathering is nothing to be ashamed of. She also shared a picture along with her husband where she can be seen feeding her baby.

“Here’s a picture of me breastfeeding my 2-year-old right before she digs into her turkey dinner while sitting next to my mother, oldest daughter, and brother,” the mom wrote in the caption to her Thanksgiving dinner post on November 28. BOOM. Just like that.

She says you don’t need to hide or cover while feeding your baby

She continued by saying you don’t need to cover or go anywhere for feeding your child. Breastfeed them wherever and whenever you want whether in a mall or at the dinner table.

By sharing all these thoughts and photos of her breastfeeding she wants to remove the stigma from the minds of women. She wants to encourage them to stay strong and happy.

She continued by saying, “I hope when women have these issues they know they’re not alone and feel encouraged. “Women are still be kicked out of public places and humiliated. Negative comments are given daily,” she says.

“I hope people will read the words and understand what breastfeeding is and to not make breastfeeding mothers feel like they need to hide or feed with a cover on if they wish not to,” she adds.

So proud of her and her positive thinking.

Delhi Airport Has Started An All-Woman Cab Service ‘Woman With Wheels’ To Make Women Feel Safer

Woman With Wheels

In a bid to make women feel safer while entering the national capital region, Delhi airport has started a new initiative i.e. a private all-women cab service especially for women from the Indira Gandhi International Airport. The all-women cab service is known as ‘Women with Wheels‘. This service can be availed for any part of Delhi. It operates from a kiosk near pillar number 16 at the airport. I think that’s a great initiative taken to ensure the safety of women in Delhi and it has a long way to go.

Who drives these cars?

The cabs are run exclusively for women commuters and are driven by women drivers only who are hired from an NGO named Azad Foundation, said Arvind Vadera, the CEO of Sakha Consulting Wings, the company that is running this service. Men are allowed to enter the cab only if they are accompanied by a woman.

What does this Azad Foundation do?

Sakha Consulting Wings

Azad Foundation is an NGO that trains women belonging from the economically weaker background to become professional drivers among other things.

One of the women drivers said, “Now that I am standing on my feet. I feel I can do anything. I’m living my life freely now,”.

Until now, the company has a fleet of 20 cars with 10 drivers said Vadera. They are further trying to expand their fleet.

From where did this idea come?

The CEO if the company added that this idea came from seeing women who feel uncomfortable while travelling in city cabs. “Normally women who land at the airport in the late hours feel uncomfortable while hiring taxis. We decided to provide them with cabs driven by women to make them feel safe,”.

Vadera further added, “The cabs have GPS and a panic button installed. So, if either the driver or commuter feels the need, they can call for help. We have a tie-up with a company called 24 Response that will send help within 30 minutes”.

Sakha Consulting Wings provide the all-women cab service in other cities as well including Indore, Jaipur, and Kolkata as well. If we talk about the rates, the rates of the cabs are equal to the rates of other city cabs.

What do you have you to say about this unique idea which is aimed at protecting the women from facing any mishappening while travelling?

Teenage Climate Activist Greta Thunberg Drawn into A Twitter Argument with German Rail Company

Greta Thunberg on the German Train

Greta Thunberg has become famous lately and we all very well know why. She is a great teenage climate activist who shook the nation with her awesome speech that demanded strict actions to be taken toward deteriorating climate change. She has also become the Time’s Person of the Year 2019.

Greta shared the photo of her on Twitter while sitting on the busy German train

Recently, she has tweeted a photo of herself sitting on the floor of the busy German train along with her luggage. She complained that the train was extremely overcrowded and she also hinted that why she is sitting on the floor.

She Tweeted

The protest icon wrote, “Travelling on overcrowded trains through Germany. And I’m finally on my way home!”

Her tweet angered the service in charge of operating the train

But the things did not end here only. This tweet of her seems to have angered the service in charge of operating the train, Deutsche Bahn (DB).

She got a reply in two parts for her Tweet

In response to her tweet, they posted a two-part reply. Both of the replies were very contradicting and opposite. In the first part, they expressed their pleasure in serving Greta and for supporting them in their journey to make travelling green.

First Tweet

“Love #Greta, thank you for supporting us railroad workers in the fight against climate change! We were pleased that you were on the ICE 74 with us on Saturday. And with 100 per cent green electricity,” the first tweet.

While in the second part, however, the train company has made a cranky comment said they wished Greta would appreciate their friendly service and would talk about how friendly their staff was and how did they make things comfortable for her. However, after this comment fight, Greta was eventually upgraded to the first class.

Second Tweet

“It would have been even nicer if you had also reported how friendly and competent you were looked after by our team at your seat in first class. #Greta,” they continued.

Greta replied back to their tweet and mentions overcrowd means the demand for the train is high

On getting comments from the train operators, Great instantly replied and said that her intention was not to complain about how overcrowded trains are. I wanted to show that more people are willing to travel on trains than aeroplanes!

A post shared by Greta Thunberg (@gretathunberg) on

She wrote, “Our train from Basel was taken out of traffic. So we sat on the floor at 2 different trains. After Gottingen, I got a seat. This is no problem of course and I never said it was. Overcrowded trains are a great sign because it means the demand for train travel is high!”
