A blogger’s Instagram post about traveling on a train with a baby has gone viral because of the shocking situation she found herself in.
Kate Hitchens was riding a commuter train home from London during rush hour with her 6-month-old son, and unfortunately she couldn’t find a seat. Having to breastfeed her baby, she did so standing — and then took to social media to air her frustration with the fact that “not one person offered a mother carrying a small child a seat for around half an hour, or 3 stops!”
“What has the world come to that a mother has to stand up on a moving train breast feeding a wriggling and writhing 6 month old, 20lb baby?!” the 32-year-old wrote.
Her post also noted that she could have asked for a seat but “shouldn’t have to.”
Hitchens, who is also mom to 3-year-old Oliver, concluded by urging people to “be kinder” if they see others struggling. “Next time you see someone with a child on a train — if you’re able bodied and fit and healthy please offer your seat to them,” she said.
