“I want to make public this great gesture of love that you had today with this little baby,” he wrote.

“He was waiting for us to take care of him and obviously had a great need to feed himself, it was a really terrible situation. I felt like doing it to soothe him, so I gave him the breast. I was just human and thought of my little girls at that time.”
