A Mother’s Vulnerable Journey of Breastfeeding Shamed by Strangers – Her Tears Behind Each TikTok

In a viral video, one mother recently posted an emotional video of her child trying to reach underneath her top to breastfeed, while the mother refuses, an act that has led to shocking backlash on social media from mostly male users. In a follow-up video she also shows the disgraceful comments thrown at her for posting her breastfeeding journey on TikTok.

Breastfeeding Hate Comments

One TikTok mum, Emma, A_mothers_tale, recently found herself at the center of hate comments after opening up about her breastfeeding journey with her 2-year-old son.

In a heartfelt video, Emma showed the difficulties of weaning her toddler off breastfeeding.

The emotional footage captured her son’s effort to breastfeed, even going as far as pulling up Emma’s shirt.

Emma’s refusal left her son’s visibility confused.


The video showed text that said, “Week one of weaning got us like…,”

“Weaning” means to guide an infant onto other feeding methods besides breast milk

To Emma’s astonishment, the video quickly gained momentum, amassing over two million views and attracting approximately 3,000 comments.

Many of these comments were harsh judgments and criticisms directed at Emma.

“Did He Put Down His Beer for That Milk?”

They questioned her decision to breastfeed her son at such a late age.

One insensitive comment read, “Did he put down his beer for that milk?”

Another sarcastically remarked, “You go to school with him today?”

Unable to ignore the hurtful remarks, Emma bravely shared a follow-up video addressing the negativity and urging people to normalize “natural term breastfeeding.”

Overwhelming Number of Abusive Comments

The next video began with the text “When you post a video on TikTok of you weaning your 2-year-old son and wake up to this…,”

Then she shows an overwhelming number of abusive comments from her previous video.

Messages like “Don’t wanna see this,” and “You have issues,” to which Emma defiantly replied to with, “No you do.”

Another user said, “Not even funny” plus many more that flooded the screen.

A Glimmer of Support Shone Through

“The judgment was/is shocking,” Emma responded.

Breastfeeding in public and openly sharing breastfeeding experiences have become highly debatable in recent years.

Fortunately, amidst the negativity, a glimmer of support shone through as other mothers rallied around Emma, offering encouragement and sharing similar experiences.

One compassionate comment read, “I’m still nursing my 3-year-old, and I always get weird looks. Brush it off, momma. You are doing great!”

“I Breastfed My Son for Over Two Years!”

Another mother shared her own journey, saying, “I breastfed my son for over two years! Best decision I ever made!”

Every mother should have the freedom to decide about breastfeeding and when it’s time to stop.
