In Dartford, England this week, a mother, who was breastfeeding her baby in local public park, is being accused of 'squirting her boob' at a woman, who told her to move to a private location because it was distracting her husband.

According to the Daily Mail, the post stated: 'To the lady in Dartford park who thought it was appropriate to breastfeed her baby whist my child and very easily distracted husband sat nearby.

'I don't think it was necessary for you to react the way you did just because I asked you to go somewhere private, telling me to f*** off and squirting me with your boobs was incredibly uncalled for. I hope you are ashamed of yourself!'

However, the locals came to the breastfeeding mom's defense.

Janice Holmes said: 'I hope you're ashamed of yourself, her reaction may not have been the right way to deal with your ignorance, but she has every right to feed her child there, if it offended you that much why didn't you move?'

Ciara Bennett said: 'If this lady told me to stop breastfeeding my daughter and to go somewhere else I would tell her to do one! 

'How sad is it that breastfeeding is seen as a bad thing now and formula feeding is the norm. Good luck to the breastfeeding mum who told this lady where to go.'

Other residents asked why her husband was rudely staring at this mother.

Like the United States, laws protect mothers who choose to breastfeed their children in public places, and the Equality Act of 2010 has made it 'illegal for anyone to ask a breastfeeding woman to leave a public place, such as a cafe, shop or public transport,' according to the NHS England website.
