I'm really just curious. I have heard about laws being passed to protect BF'ing mothers and the horrible things they are called, evil stares, etc... I'm not saying this doesn't happen, but I'm wondering how often. Have any of you experienced this personally? I only have one lady walk up to me when I breastfed in public (at a restaurant no less...although covered by a blanket) and she only came over to say that she thought it was great that I was nursing. So obviously, my experience does not relate. lol. This is NOT a debate on whether moms should nurse in public...it's to find out personal experiences with being called names, stared at, etc...Answer Question

I breastfed my first and am currently breastfeeding my second and no one has ever said anything to me. The closest thing I ever got was a couple of young male servers at a restaurant snickering from across the dining the room. I am always discreet and cover up, people don't really give it a second look.

Anon 1:55- I wish either of my girls would take expressed milk from a bottle, but they wouldn't. I either have to stay at home all the time or feed them in public, so I do what I gotta do. No one has ever seen my boob while feeding in public.
