This New Zealand mom's viral Facebook post is a true testament to the kindness of strangers.
On Monday, Briar Lusia Mcqueen posted about a wonderful experience she had while breastfeeding in public.
"Just wanted to share this really sweet moment I had this morning," she wrote. Mcqueen said she went out to breakfast with her 8-week-old son Jaxon for the first time, and just after her food arrived, the baby started crying. He appeared to be hungry, so the mom began to breastfeed him.
"After a few minutes this older lady walked up to me," Mcqueen continued. "I was scared, thinking she was gonna tell me to put my boob away -- instead she starts cutting up my breakfast for me and said 'what a good mama you are, we can't have your food getting cold can we.'"
"I honestly could have cried -- loveliest lady EVER!!" the mom wrote.
Mcqueen's Facebook post has received almost 300,000 likes, and the comments section is filled with joy-filled reactions.
Facebook user Jeff Creasey commented, "Now THAT is how breastfeeding mothers and babies SHOULD and MUST be treated!"
