Dad Who Declares He's Moving Back With Ex After Breastfeeding Fight Dragged

The internet has dragged a father who declared he was moving back in with his ex after they fought about her breastfeeding their son privately.

Published to Reddit's "AmITheA**hole" forum, a woman under the username u/evie364 shared her story, earning 5,000 upvotes and 2,000 comments.

The Redditor began by explaining that her ex-husband gets to have time with their son for two hours every day. When it's time for their son to feed, she takes him into another room or she kicks her ex out so she can breastfeed him privately. For a while, he said nothing about her doing this, but she noticed that he got annoyed.

When a mother breastfeeds her child, the child has a decreased risk of health problems such as Diarrhea, SIDS, Asthma, Leukemia, Celiac Disease, Type 1 and Type 2 Diabetes, and childhood overweight and obesity, per the American Academy of Pediatrics.

One day, he got upset over the situation.

She wrote: "He said I was being ridiculous since he'd seen me naked hundreds of times and that I was purposely cutting into his time with our son. He wouldn't leave the room when I asked him to so I ended up having to feed my son in front of him because he was hungry and crying. He told me today he was going to move back into our home."

Written as a reply in the comment section, the original poster (OP) stated that her ex-husband comes over "whenever he has time."

Redditors were quick to share their opinions in the comment section.

"He 'told you' he's moving back in? Nope nope nope. He does not have your consent to see any part of your body you don't want him to end of story. Previous consent does not equal current consent,' u/Abba_Zaba_ wrote, receiving the top comment with 10,000 upvotes.

They continued: "He also does not have your consent to reside in your (not 'our', YOUR) home. Call your lawyer right now. Get off reddit and call your lawyer."

U/prairiemountainzen said, "Uhm, what? This guy sounds like he has zero respect for you or your boundaries. [Not the A**hole]."

"If you don't feel safe or comfortable breast feeding in front of him, don't do it. Don't cave to his manipulation. You have every right to have privacy," u/SomethingComesHere stated.

"And then 'declaring' that he's moving back in. Excuse you, this is not your sovereign nation you entitled non existent parent," u/honeymochie wrote.
