breastfeeding comebacks

So I was in a post today about a woman getting harrassed for nursing - in her own parked car no less.  And told her that I have a list of comebacks in case anyone gives me any trouble while I'm feeding my kid in public.  So I figured I'd share it here too :-)

ok some of my favorite comebacks:

"if you dont want to watch me feed my child feel free to stop staring"

"No, I think YOU'D be more comfortable in the bathroom or a more private place. I'm fine here."

"Sure, I’ll stop - are you gonna take over for me?"

If my breastfeeding offends you, I will be happy to ask your waiter to bring you your food in the restroom.”

If breastfeeding offends you, put a blanket over YOUR head!

Are you still nursing?

"No I feed him the blood of annoying people - you're looking mighty tasty!'

"Why - you want some too? You'll have to wait your turn"

"Yes, his doctor is so thrilled. So many moms give up due to pressures of rude friends and family"

Isn’t he a little old for that?”

“Aren’t you a little old to be randomly coming up to strangers and asking impolite questions?”

 

 *I think my favorite is the blood of annoying people one.  BAH HA HA HA Plus it also works if you are giving formula and someone is trying to bash you for that choice

I love breastfeeding comebacks : )  I've never had to use one, though, thankfully!  No one has ever so much as given me a rude look, which is awesome.  I'm sure people have been uncomfortable, but none had the nerve to say anything.

 If I ever have an other baby I will SOOOO use those. But I have never really been approached by strangers about it.
