This may have been asked previously, but I'm in a "hot" debate with my brother. As a breastfeeding advocate, I see no reason why a child should be forced to enjoy their meal in a bathroom or sweat ferociously buried under any type of blanket. I think men are selfish to wanna try and compete with or intrude with baby's nursing time and insecure about their wife nursing in public. The wives who complain about a nursing mother being disrespect intimidated by a body part?

I know it's not going to be the most popular answer here, but when I nursed I did not want to be exposed in public. I would go to the restroom to feed if out and if at a friend or family member's home I would ask for a private room and it had nothing to do with my husband, it had to do with the fact that I did not want my breasts exposed in public. The maddest I can remember ever being at my mother in law was when she stormed in with a camera and took a picture of me breast feeding. After that I locked the door when feeding around her.
Receiving blankets are not thick and heavy, but do cover well. I see nothing wrong with using modesty when breastfeeding.
