I really cant believe you feel that strongly about it - were you a formula baby?


I hope so.
that would explain sh*t loads tbh

You just couldn't resist could you...Sleepy

I'm pro breastfeeding, but I do believe a lot of these women are seeking publicity/compensation by creating situations that would have someone say something to them. I could be wrong, but for what reason would anyone NOT want to be discrete? If covering your breast with a cloth/blanket, etc doesn't interfere with you child's ability to nurse, why wouldn't you, simply out of respect for others around? There are plenty of mothers who don't show their children their breasts, so what's wrong w/ those same mothers not wanting another woman to expose their breasts to their children.
 
When my SO and I go out to dinner before going out dancing, and I'm wearing a revealing/"club" top or dress, I always keep a jacket or shrug on to be respectful of others in that non club/lounge setting.
 
IA with ALL of this!!!
I remember having a few people over my house a few days after my daughter was born. When it was time to nurse her or pump, I kindly excused myself from the room and took my daughter to a private setting. Had a not been in a position to do that, I definately would have used a blanket. To each is own though...
 
I wouldn't feel uncomfortable if another woman whipped out her boob to nurse in front of me...but I could see how it could make the situation uncomfortable if children and men were around. If someone whipped out her whole boob in front of my husband of daughter, I'd kindly remove myself from the room...or give her the serious side eye.
 
I'm all for nursing in public...but be discreet.

Honestly, I formula fed my baby and will plan to probably do the same for the next one. For me, it is more of a choice of mental Health than not being able to produce, although that's what I told ppl in the beginning to who gave me judgmental looks and ask probing questions. Ive kind of reached the point of not caring. Although I am content with my decision,
I will fight all day for the right for women to breastfeed in the way that is the most comfortable for them and baby for dozens of reasons.

I honestly think the disconnect comes from the extreme sexualization of women's bodies, but discussion have so many offshoots.

I also think that while "breast is best" is the theoretical best, this country doesn't have an infrastructure to support the practice. Yes there are laws in place, but are they really enforced? One of the teachers at my school who was breastfeeding stopped early bc she could never get away to pump bc there was no one to cover her class, and when she could, her only option was the copy room.I've known women who have had bosses be hostile to their request to have a place to do it discreetly.

But that is also another discussion.
