The chaos of motherhood laid bare: Mum-of-two Elisha Wilson Beach, from Los Angeles, shared this photo of herself breastfeeding her toddler daughter while on the toilet. The image has since gone viral

This picture of of a woman breastfeeding her toddler while sitting on the toilet, is trending presently on the web.

A lot of people have basically been bashing and criticizing her, basically for not taking into consideration the ‘hygiene’ aspect of breastfeeding her child.

I personally do not see anything wrong with what is going on in the picture. People generally are judgmental by nature, therefore, they are entitled to their opinion.

Some of you who have gone through motherhood and breastfeeding, will testify that there are just some kids who don’t give a rat’s a@#$e about where they breastfeed. In fact, some infants don’t leave you with any choice! There are some babies that make you wonder where they dropped from…so damn NOISY! and they sure know how to raise those beats!!

For all you know, the father of the child( who by the way is TV actor Michael Beach, known for his roles on Sons of Anarchy, Third Watch and ER), must have tried holding the child till mum was done…but some kids just congenitally lack PATIENCE!

If we really need to be critically objective about this situation, then lets also note that some of these people who are bashing this woman, could have far much dirtier habits that could set off an epidemic…so, let’s not just go there!

Kudos to all the #SuperMoms #BreastFeedingMoms …at least we are generous with the breast and the milk!


  1. I have had to breastfeed in public toilets on more than one occasion especially in those days in Europe when breastfeeding was seen as strange. I would get into a toilet and seat on it covered and spend up to an hour at times breastfeeding for as long as I needed to. Babies won’t understand any reason for delay.
