A nursing mother’s receipt from a downtown Des Moines restaurant has gone viral.
“I ate at Fongs for the first time tonight. Having a fussy baby I nursed him for awhile in the booth and eventually left the table early as to not disrupt the restaurant,” Jackie Johnson-Smith explains in a Facebook post.
After everybody had finished with their meal, the mother of three says, “The waitress gave this receipt to my husband. I was speechless and emotional.”
Fong’s server Bodi Kinney wrote “I bought one of your pizzas. Please thank your wife for breastfeeding!!”
Johnson-Smith says, “Although I don’t need a pat on the back for feeding my child, it sure felt amazing. It is amazing how we women can make each other feel when we empower each other.”
The original Facebook post has received over 2,400 shares as of Thursday afternoon.
