My dad praised my wife’s big boobs – now she says he’s a pervert and won’t talk to him
LEARNING TO love your post-baby body can take time for some new mums, and it's totally normal to have some insecurities.
One mum was breastfeeding at home when she faced unwanted comments from her father-in-law.
And when her husband didn't completely support her reaction, it even caused conflict between the two of them.
Posting on Reddit, her husband wrote: "On Friday night my parents dropped by our house on short notice (literally as they were pulling up). We weren't really prepared for them but we let them in anyway.
Right from the off, the situation sounds far from ideal, with a new mum expected to entertain in laws without being given any notice.
The new dad continued, "My wife was […] breastfeeding our son when my dad walked in. He did not see anything other than my wife's boob (not nipple), but based on that […] he told her that he could see why his grandson was so well fed.
"Then when my mom walked in he told her something like 'we don't have to worry about John starving by the looks of it.'
"My wife is very insecure about her body post-baby, so she was very upset and in tears.
"I told my dad that he owed my wife an apology and if he said more things like that to her he wouldn't be welcome in our home. My mom also called him out for this."
"He quickly apologized and asked for her forgiveness. He also promised not to make comments like that again."
The new mum accepted her father-in-law's apology in the moment, and soon after, both he and her mother-in-law left.
However, the next day, the mum sent her father-in-law a text saying how she really felt, and described him as a "pervert" and "disgusting" after making the comments about her breasts.
The new dad said, "My dad was definitely an a**hole and probably deserved what she said, but I think it's an a**hole move also to accept an apology and then bring the issue back up again, which is what I told her."
Many of the responses to the Reddit post were on the mum's side.
One said: "He sexualised your wife while she was feeding your child. Read that again."
Another commented, "My jaw actually dropped when I heard what he said. What a disgusting thing to say. Absolutely sexual harassment."
"This is exactly why I am so afraid to breastfeed in front of anyone", a third said.
