A story 13WHAM first reported Monday continues to generate a lot of comments and interest. A Facebook post from an Irondequoit mother went viral over the weekend after being shared almost 7,000 times. Tuesday, it was shared more than 8,000 times.

Tiffany Elliot took to Facebook Saturday, claiming she was shamed by dentist Dr. Robin Craig for breastfeeding her nine-month-old baby in a patient examination room at Wilson Dental. Elliot said Dr. Craig told her she felt uncomfortable and needed to stop.

Dr. Craig shared her side of the story with 13WHAM over the phone Tuesday. She said she was abruptly interrupted as she was trying to tell the mother she was going to step out of the room. Craig said she was only able to get out the words, “I’m uncomfortable,” before the mother became irate.
