Dad’s viral video shames those who shame breastfeeding
One thing every breastfeeding mom needs is an amazing breastfeeding support partner. Brock Smith is exactly that for his wife. The dad’s viral video was posted to Breastfeeding Mama Talk’s Facebook page last week.
“As a dad and a husband…I’ve had enough of this asinine argument. D Lauren Smith and I are starting a movement…Just sayin,” he says. “For people to be ignorant enough to harass a mother trying to have a normal life while breastfeeding a child just infuriates us.”

It’s just simply not okay!!!” Read more here.
