  • DAMN STRAIGHT I'd participate!! I'm tired of companies and others trying to tell mothers they "can't" BF in public.

  • " what about peeing in public....it's natural too. "

    Theyre are facilities to do just that. I dont recall "breastfeeding rooms" being set up practically everywhere as much as rest rooms are.

    I bet she's not against her man groping her in public.

    I breast fed ONE time in public. I had a doc appointment and was a little early the glares I got brought me to tears. It was a lose lose situation I could have not fed him and people stare hatefully cause he's crying or BF and be looked at as if I am having sex in public! its ridiculous!

  • yes i would have. BF in public is still considered taboo by so many. I BF my DD is public many times, but always carried a blanket with me to cover myself. It doesnt bother me at all to see a woman BF. If someone gets their kicks by watching me BF, i cant stop them; and they cant stop me from BF!

  • I have ZERO problem with the normal/sane women who BF in public. The ones that are fairly discreet and are doing it for the sole purpose of feeding their child. I have a problem with BF crazies that pull out their boob, make a big production, and then get pissy if a man gets uncomfortable (because lets face it, men are wussies) and walks out or away. BF is a great thing for those that can and CHOOSE to do it....but it isn't something that should be used to make others feel crappy or uncomfortable while someone else makes a point!

  • Definately, i would support that mom. I can, try, to understand some peoples discomfort with BF in public. Some women are not discrete, and you can see a little more than you want to...HOWEVER, if you don't want to see it, DON"T LOOK, it's really that simple. Me, i was a modest, discrete BF mom, but i did it anywhere, anytime, and i didn't even cover up. I just put a blanket below my boob and lifted my shirt enough for baby to eat. Funny thing, poeple would come up to me, talk to me for a while before they een realized what i was doing! I only had one person comment negativly and say "you should do that in the bathroom". I said, "when you take your lunch in the bathroom and eat it on a toilet, then i will feed my baby in there too" (ok,i was fibbing to her as i would never feed my baby in a bathroom!)
