Bottle mum repeatedly harassed
A mother who bottle-feeds her son says she has been repeatedly harassed by other mothers in public - and is now embarrassed to go to the supermarket for his formula.
"It's ridiculous how much grief people get just for having a bottle. Two weeks ago I was at the mall in the food court and my son started to cry.
"I gave him a bottle and a lady came up to me and said it's a really bad look and it's not a good way to represent New Zealand parents.
Ms Rhodes said she had also been harassed while feeding her son in a parents' room at the Westfield shopping mall in Manukau City.
