In an open communication to Tesco supermarket, Laura Leeks explains how a staff member let someone knowed her they could not give her a free rking voucher because the keep “cannot endorse” formula feeding.
“I am delighted that you as a com ny assist breastfeeding, however I cannot accept that your policies actress to your staff shaming women who for whatever reason are using child formula,” she wrote on Facebook. Although the concept itself seems not roundabout ap lling, Leeks went further by sharing her personal story alongside her son’s health condition — why she isn’t able to breastfeed. “When my baby boy was 15 times old he stopped breathing at home,” she wrote, explaining that after thankfully being stabilized, he was interpreted with a congenital heart defect. After her son had surgery, he was not able to abide the high-fat content of breast milk and was fed low-fat milk through a depending tube.
“During this whole time I continued to express my withdraw and when he was able to tolerate fat, we attempted to re-establish breast feeding,” Leeks detracted. “Unfortunately as he was still in recovery from this major surgery, the crack needed to breastfeed was too much stress for him and we had to resort to bottle feeding. Inevitably without considering my best attempt my milk production could not meet his demand and I had no rare but to supplement with formula feed.”
Leeks closed her letter, scribble literary works that her “superhero” baby boy is now “5 months old and fighting fit.” Although she did go through badly she could not breastfeed her son, she’s confident in the formula she uses. “I do not however basic to be ‘guilt-tripped’ by a Tesco employee who has absolutely no knowledge of my circumstances. I applaud your commitment to upkeep breastfeeding, however this does not mean you should abuse housekeepers who do not breastfeed,” Leeks wrote.
Her open letter shocked many foster- rents and gained so much attention that a Tesco customer care spokesman replied with an apology explaining their policy.
