Breastfeeding Mum Has Brilliant Comeback To Online Troll
A young mum has hit back at a troll who abused her online telling her to 'put her fucking tits away' after she posted pictures of herself breastfeeding her daughter.
Aimee Wood, 20, regularly posts photos of herself feeding seven-month-old Nova on her Facebook and Instagram pages, as she wants to 'normalise' breastfeeding.
The Stockport born mum posted a picture flipping the bird whilst she breastfed in response to the troll.
She also wrote: "I'd just like to point out to each and every person that my posts seem to bother, that there is a block button for a reason.
"I will post 500 breastfeeding pictures a day if that's what I wish to do. This is my profile, my daughter and MY memories.
"I can share what I want and when I want, and if you don't want to be a part of that then so be it, you will not be missed."
On Instagram she also responded to the claim she was only posting the pictures for attention and shouldn't be displaying the images publicly.
She said that it was hypocritical of the male troll to take offense at her photos given that he pot images of himself with his top off.

Aimee replied: "Not that I need to explain, but it's for the memories. And also because my daughter has severe reflux she constantly feeds.
"She never goes more than half an hour without feeding unless she's asleep. I'd have very few photos of her if I didn't capture breastfeeding pictures. I'm proud of our breastfeeding journey and of my daughter. I post them for me.
"I have a separate Instagram account with only mums following me, where I post most of my breastfeeding pictures."
Following the online altercation she has received a number of messages of support.
Speaking to the M.E.N, Aimee, who is engaged to Nova's dad Jayk Carr, said: "There are a few breastfeeding support groups on Facebook and they are amazing.
"Ninety per cent of people are on my side and agree it's something that needs to be normalised. Then there's the other few that take offence, or say the pictures are disrespectful.
"I think some people were bothered by the amount of photos, but it's just a baby eating. It's not something I feel you should have to hide.
"She feeds every half an hour so I'd have no photos of her otherwise."
