The Meme and the Real Couple

Bride Shelby and groom Garrett have been shamed worldwide for asking nursing mothers at their wedding reception to breastfeed in an area they set up in the ladies room. Breastfeeding advocates have attacked via social media. All the tabloids have written about it. But nobody has talked to the bride and groom who are the subject of the wedding guest’s complaints. Until now. Shelby and Garrett explain what happened before, and after the wedding, in an exclusive interview with Sandy Malone.

    I want to see these supposed messages about an alternative location. I call BS on that. Please, young lady, go sit in a bathroom and eat your meal and tell me how great it is. There, is nothing difficult about it, stop sexualizing breasts. They are biologically designed to feed babies, deal with it.

    The key here is: they sent out a memo about it. I don't know about you, but that seems like a red flag to me...! I breastfeed and, had I been in that situation, I just wouldn't attend the wedding. Why stress out about it?

    My best friend has breastfeed both of her children, my sister nursed her son, I have other friends who nurse as well and never would I ever insult ANY of them by asking them to nurse in a BATHROOM where people shit. I would love to have this couple over and make them eat in a BATHROOM and see how they like it. They are right FRIENDS wouldn't do that. Absolutely nasty and horrifying..

    This makes me stabby. You find breastfeeding disrespectful? Are you really such a snowflake that you don't realize that this is what breasts were made for? Please, next time you want to eat a meal, take it to the restroom so you can eat it next to someone who is pooping. Would you want to do that? No, you wouldn't. It's disgusting. It is unsanitary. Maybe instead of sexualizing breasts and realizing what their intended purpose is for, you wouldn't be so offended by seeing a breast. 🙄

    You know, you guys made a bigger issue about breastfeeding at your wedding by all of this than it would've been if you just let the mamas feed their baby's! Now the only thing people will remember from your wedding is the great breastfeeding debacle 😂 Completely accomplished the opposite of what you wanted.

    I don't know why you think it's okay to have a baby eat in a bathroom where people PEE and SHIT!!! Like most people won't even put their cheeks on the seat, but you want a baby to eat there? 😂

    So sad that a couple could be so disrespectful to a mother feeding her young child! You would think nowadays people wouldn't be so ignorant on the benefits of breast feeding and how vulnerable are Mother's are during this time because of mean and ignorant people like yourself. I feel so sorry for any of spring you may have! Hopefully they marry into a better family and are awaken to the truth and not your lies!

    The reason why no one cared about interviewing this ridiculous couple is because THEY ASKED A BABY TO EAT IN A BATHROOM. As soon as it's socially acceptable to serve adults their meal in the bathroom, I'll happily nurse my baby in a bathroom. And Sandy Malone can go kick rocks with her bias and attitude. Probably why no one cares about her either.

    This is so discouraging to breastfeeding mom's. Stop the stigma, this is disgusting. I wouldn't eat in a bathroom. If they cared about their friend, they would have respected her friend's right to feed her baby wherever, however.

    Firstly, you all sound incredibly ignorant. Babies have to eat, and No one should have to eat in a bathroom. Ever. You’re the problem if you are made uncomfortable by a woman feeding her child, period.

    My blood is boiling just reading about the situation you two had put this breastfeeding mama through. Breastfeeding is the most natural thing in the world. Women’s bodies were created to birth and nourish their babies with their bodies.
    I really hope if/when you decide to start a family that you reflect on what you did to this mother and her child. I hope one day no one tells you to feed your precious baby in a bathroom (where germs and disease can spread to their developing immune system). I hope that one day you realize what you did was wrong, and discriminating.

    Replace boob with bottle and you’ll see how ridiculous this whole interview is. You guys are completely perverted to think there is anything wrong with. The first three minutes contain full shame, I hope that in your mind that your wedding is ruined over something so petty.

    For the most part, your side of the story conformed Ceara's. By the way, she wasn't interviewed by others. I have been the only one to interview her. The other articles took information from the pictures and from what they could see on Ceara's page and various groups the images were shared in. Why don't you read this to truly understand what the issue is. http://educatedhippie.com/2017/10/02/wedding-rules-for-breastfeeding/

    Nursing mommy!!
    Bride, groom, and interviewer all sound stupid!!!!!! I REALLY hope y'all NEVER have kids and pass on y'all's stupidness!!
    And NO a bathroom isn't an appropriate place to feed a child!!!! Y'all should be made to eat in a bathroom! No friends don't tell people to eat in a bathroom 🚽
    Y'all are discussing people!
    Yes YES you did do something wrong and illegal because you can not tell someone where to breastfed!

    The bride and groom are insanely ignorant. This isn’t about “shoving breastfeeding down everyone’s throats.” This is about expecting a baby to eat in a BATHROOM. That is unsanitary for the baby and dehumanizing for the Mother. You could have set up a breastfeeding area anywhere else. Not a bathroom. She didn’t name you because she didn’t want to blast you, embarrass you, and show how ignorant you are. You named yourself simply for attention.

    Seriously, educate yourselves. There is absolutely nothing wrong with breastfeeding, if fact, it is a woman's legal right to breastfeed wherever they are legally allowed to be regardless of use of cover. The fact that you find a woman using her breast for it's intended purpose-built a child- disrespectful to you speaks volumes about you as a person. Self-centered. The issue of her nursing in front of your husband, that sounds like more of a personal issue. Nobody even knew who you were until you came out with this. This woman didn't name you. You named yourselves. Breastfeeding is not about the mother, it's about the child, and expecting a child to eat in the bathroom is incredibly unsanitary. A child's needs and comfort should always take precedence over the opinions of some misguided adults.

    This is rediculous! No mother should have to feed her child where she can smell someone taking a dump! This bride and groom are so wrong and should apologize to all those mothers they tried to shame by sending them this letter. So much ignorance coming from two adults. People like this is what's wrong with the world.

    First of all, their names where never mentioned when she posted this on Facebook. They outed themselves out. This was made viral to stop people from shaming breastfeeding moms. I don't eat in a bathroom and neither will my child.
    All of you sound so immature. Breast where made to feed a baby. Grow up, educate yourselfs, do some research. Moms don't pop out their boob just because. We do it to feed our babies. If you don't want to see it, it's so damn simple, turn around, close your eyes, and don't stare. You have issues with your husband seeing breasts do what they're meant to do then you have bigger problems in your relationship.

    This is absolutely ridiculous. There is NOTHING disrespectful about breastfeeding ANYWHERE. This is such a huge problem.... it hurts my heart to see such ugliness come from another woman. We are supposed to stand up for and support one another. Stop shaming! Breastfeeding is natural, and WHAT BREASTS WERE INTENDED FOR. If you wouldn't eat in the bathroom, then no baby should be expected to either!

    The bride and groom should have stayed quiet because they sound even more ignorant and uneducated than I imagined. They're worried about class and tact but the groom wore blue jeans and a baseball cap to his wedding. They need to get over themselves. Let them take a steak and potatoes and eat it in the bathroom and see how degrading that is.

    Why anyone thinks its ok to feed a baby in a toilet is ridiculous. Everyday I thank God I live in Africa, breasts here have not been sexualised. I feed my son EVERYWHERE!!!!! As for you in America keep the fire burning fight for your rights to feed when, where and how you want to. Primary Biological use for mammary glands is to Nourish off springs.

    You seriously need to reeducate yourself on some things, wet nurse, ew? Umm read history books and the Bible then get back to me with that comment.😂 And secondly, haven't you heard of the breastfeeding laws that are in place protecting a breastfeeding mom for this very reason. And did you ever think that the reason all these articles haven't asked for their side is because they were left anonymous..💁🏻🤦🏻‍♀️

    You should be ashamed that you are shaming something so natural and so beautiful. A bathroom is not the place to feed a child. Get a grip. I hope you never have children! Fair play to the woman for speaking out against you disgusting people

    This interview is such a load of shit I mean really you guys (mainly bride ) deserve every mean comment because of the way you went about this. How about the disrespect you did these breastfeeding moms and because you're worried your husband might see her boobs come on honey grow up even if they are better, you shouldn't worry about that because if it was a problem then you probably shouldn't of married him.

    Breastfeeding is a beautiful thing.

    I hope you two grow up and are able to see that. Then you can apologize for being so ignorant. And I'm sure the breastfeeding Momma's from your wedding will appreciate the apology. <3

    I couldn't even finish the interview because bride, groom and the interviewer all sound so dumbing uneducated. I mean come on if anything the bride is the disrespectful one , a bathroom REALLY isn't a place to feed a baby. Sounds like you think you are better if anyone isn't a good friend it's you guys. And if your that worried about your husband seeing her boob while she is feeding her baby then you obviously have bigger problems. Normalize breastfeeding

    Ps I would never treat a friend this way and when the bride said why did she even come so dumb her significant other was in the wedding I mean come on you sound so childish.

    It is absolutely appalling that you expect a baby to eat in a bathroom. It is so unsanitary! Do YOU want to eat where you/other shit? No? Then don't make a child. Breasts were created for breastfeeding. Society has simply made them sexualized. But the reason women have breasts is to feed their children. Grow up! Ugh.

    Make sure everyone was okay with it? By sending a note? Didn't seem there was a way to respond. We don't pop our boobs out because we want. We breastfeed when baby hungry. Why do you not like breastfeeding? Why is that an issue? Will you breastfeed your own child? Is this the wedding planner than planned your wedding? Because she has a hand in this as well. This is so rude!

    One question, now that your married and presumably will one day start a family would you consider breastfeeding your child or is this now off the table?

    This was not about shaming Shelby that is why their names were left out. A bathroom is never a place to eat at any age. That would be why no one asked for thier side. You are a seriously sick person if your uncomfortable with breastfeeding
