This article is about a mother, Jackie-Johnson Smith, who was breastfeeding her child in a restaurant. To her surprise, the waitress paid for one of her pizzas and wrote a note on her receipt thanking her for breastfeeding! When Johnson-Smith got home, she posted a photo of the receipt to her Facebook page with the message: “I have breastfed three children… I have breastfed them in a countless number of places both pleasant and unpleasant, discreetly and out in the open. I have gotten many looks and stares, but tonight erases any negativity I have ever received. I ate at Fongs for the first time tonight. Having a fussy baby I nursed him for awhile in the booth and eventually left the table early as to not disrupt the restaurant. The waitress gave this receipt to my husband. I was speechless and emotional. Although I don’t need a pat on the back for feeding my child, it sure felt amazing. It is amazing how we women can make each other feel when we empower each other.”
