A mother who breastfed her child at a fast food restaurant got an unexpected surprise when another woman saw her nursing her baby.

According to someone named Katy, a group of friends were eating at Chipotle when another woman stopped by their table and dropped off a note.

The note came with a $15 gift card and a very surprising message, according to a Facebook post from Peaceful Parenting,

The message read: "Thank you for breastfeeding in public—helping reduce the stigma for future moms like me. You rock!"

"Friends of mine were at Chipotle today and it was packed with students from a nearby college. One girl ran over, dropped this on the table, smiled and walked out the door. So amazing to see that what we are doing is having an impact on future generations!" Katy wrote.

The photo has been liked nearly 9,000 times and was shared nearly 2,000 times. All we have to say about this is that it's about time someone directed positivity and respect towards busy moms who choose to exercise their rights to feed their children wherever they want. Out with the breastfeeding shamers, in with the supporters.
