Parenting podcast This Glorious Mess often talks about breastfeeding mothers fighting back but rarely do they literally take matters into their own hands.
“I have a new hero, Andrew,” host Holly Wainwright told co-host Andrew Daddo on this week’s episode.
“This woman in the UK was breastfeeding in the park when this other woman accused her of distracting her partner and asked her to move along,” she said.
“How the nursing mother responded is… the best thing I’ve heard this year.”

Holly recounted how a story has emerged of a woman who squirted another with her breast milk after she had been criticised for breastfeeding in public.
The breastfeeding mum had allegedly been scolded by the second woman for “distracting” her husband.
The story originated from an anonymous post placed on a small English town’s “gossip page” on Facebook last year.
The original post, supposedly written by the woman who had been squirted, read:
“To the lady Dartford park who thought it was appropriate to breastfeed her baby whist my child and very easily distracted husband sat near by. I don’t think it was necessary for you to react the way you did just because I asked you to go somewhere private, telling me to fuck off and squirting me with your boobs was incredibly uncalled for. I hope you are ashamed of yourself! (sic).”
