"If you’re okay with your daughter lifting up her shirt and putting her baby dolls mouth to her little ‘dots’ pretending to breastfeed then I personally think you need punched in the d*** face!!! It’s just simply not okay!!! Arguments welcome.

Shocked by the response, she shared the incident with Facebook group, Breastfeeding Mama Talk.
Annie Ferguson Muscato from Florida was shopping for formula for her baby she was approached by a stranger who told her “breast is best.” The comment hit a nerve with the new mum because she’d struggled to breastfeed her little one for weeks.
