A Missouri mother had her Facebook account deactivated after posting a photo of herself breastfeeding her child and the child of a stranger.
In the now deleted Facebook post, Rebecca Wanosik wrote that she received a text message from a friend asking if she “could feed a stranger’s baby.”
“Was there ever a question?” Wanosik continued. “The baby’s mother was having surgery and the baby is exclusively breastfed and refused a bottle.”
Wanosik said the baby girl looked “hungry and exhausted” when she met her.
“I did what I hope any person would do for my child in a time of despair,” Wanosik explained. “I fed a strangers baby.”
The mother-of-six also shared images of herself breastfeeding her own child and the stranger’s baby at the same time. In the pictures, the babies appear to be holding hands.
While most social media users commended Wanosik’s actions, others thought the images were inappropriate.
“Cover up!!!! Nobody wants to see your breast,” wrote one Facebook user. “This is Facebook not sexbook.”
