  • It is fine. It beats a hungry and fussy baby.

  • Cover it. I see nothing wrong with it, but I don't want my children seeing some lady flopping her boobs around.

  • It doesn't bother me. I don't see it very often, most women use a cover.
    I personally use a cover because I feel weird about strangers seeing my breasts.

  • I think is is great . Most moms are modest enough to use covers and not flaunt what they are doing.

  • I breast fed for a year and and I was never completely comfortable doing it in public because peopel always seemed to look at me funny (or I thought they were) I would go into a bathroom or close myself off. But I could never just nurse him in a booth at a restraurant or anything like that! I see moms nursing (covered) all the time and it does not bother me so my next one, I will not be so uncomfortable!!!

  • Perfectly fine. I breastfed all 4 of my boys in public. I kept it covered. My boys have seen others do it & barely acknowledge it. BUT my bro on the other hand freaked when I fed my 3wk old @the restaruant "Im trying 2 eat" he said "So is he" I shot back.

  • If you're covered up have at it. I have no qualms with breastfeeding in public, it's the ones who feel they need to expose themselves. I don't think it's right to bare your breasts in public for any reason. I don't care if breastfeeding is healthy and natural, you're still baring your breasts. Especially when you're breastfeeding you should be covered.
