New mum fuming after neighbour complains about her breastfeeding son in garden

Sep 14, 2021

When becoming a new mum, getting into a habit of breastfeeding your baby isn't always going to be easy.

If your child needs feeding at that very moment, as a parent you'll need to figure out how to make it work.

Fortunately when it's at home, it's not too tough guaranteed you have all the privacy you want.

One woman was left fuming recently after her neighbour complained that they could see her breastfeeding.

The couple previously had issues with the new parent, after she sunbathed while pregnant in her garden.

Taking to Reddit, the woman asked if she was in the wrong for ignoring her neighbour's complaints.

So, what do you think?

The couple moved in when the woman, who had been there for five years with her husband, was two months pregnant.

There were issues immediately after spotting the woman sunbathing in her private garden from the second floor of their home.

Paul, who is the husband of the new couple, complained it made them "uncomfortable" as they were struggling with fertility.

The situation escalated when their son was born, with the couple complaining they could "see him" from their balcony.

She wrote: "Today, my husband and I were grilling some meat in the backyard. The baby was hungry so I started to breastfeed.

"When I looked at their house our neighbour Ana was on the balcony, she went in and minutes later Paul was at our door again.

"I gave my son to my husband and I answered the door.

"Paul went off on me for breastfeeding in public (again my fenced yard) and being inconsiderate."

The woman added: "When he finished I told him to leave us alone, don't knock on my door again.

"If his wife is so upset over seeing a baby she needs therapy and not him harassing my family.

"I was venting to my mum and said I was wrong, and couldn't understand as I never suffered from infertility and need to apologise."

Meanwhile many Reddit users didn't agree with her mum and claimed it was the neighbours acting badly.

One said: "I will say though her behaviour is really concerning and just reading about how she watches you made me uncomfortable.

"I would keep my guard up around her because she doesn't seem like a stable person."

Another added: "This is entirely a them problem, not a you problem."

While a third assured: "This isn't your problem. She needs to stop looking at your home that's it and that's all."
