Breastfeeding mum shamed by trolls

BREASTFEEDING mum shamed by trolls who call her daughter a “fat c**t”

Amy McGalde, a 35-year-old midwife from Adelaide, Australia known as ‘the breastmilk queen’ has been sharing photos online of her breastfeeding journey for the last 6 years.

Though many mums look to Amy for advice and support, the mum-of-four told that she has also been subject to many nasty comments by trolls.

“[Trolls] have so much time for hate, and I just delete and block them but they keep coming.”

Amy has been widely criticised for breastfeeding her children past 12 months, calling her daughter, toddler Scarlett, names like “fat c***” and “hippo” and saying she is “disgusting” for doing this.

She continued: “They say your kid is a fat little c*** that depends on you. Or that I am messing them up psychologically. They think I am damaging my kids.”

“It is the only way breastfeeding will be recognised as not just normal, but pretty cool. Breastfeeding needs to be seen to be understood.  If we don’t see it, we are never going to understand it,” Amy said.
