Recently I responded to a post about publing nursing, replying that I personally don't have a problem with it, but I know that my hubs is uncomfortable with it so I respect his feelings. Someone responded to that asking me if I was aware that slavery was abolished years ago, can someone please tell me when respecting the feelings of the man you love and choose to spend your life with became slavery?

Simple answer, the responding person was a whack job.

I dont think you are a elave but i do think your dh is dumb.it is your body and if you decide to breast feed then it applies to nusing while out. What you can do is cover yourself up with a thin blanket for modesty. Every woman should respect her SO but he should also respect that the needs of his baby are more important than his own wants.

 While I think the leap was a bit extreme, I can see where they are coming from. I only breastfed for a short time, but I did not care who I did it in front of. It never bothered my husband. I think the leap is made because there is a lack of understanding such discomfort over something that is supposed to be natural.

I'm hoping that she was responding to the wrong post, because that makes NO sense, LOL.

He didn't ask me not to do it, just made a comment once about how it made him feel a little uneasy, so I made the decision myself, I always pumped extra so I could carry bottles, and carried the pump along to keep the supply going, ut made things more challenging at times but oh well

My guess is he has probably heard some pervy guy make comments about breastfeeding and he doesn't want any other guy looking at you in that way. I say that because it happened to me when I stayed with my XSIL for a few weeks after Hurricane Katrina because the black mold was being removed from my house. XSIL's  BF was a total PERV and would make sick comments while I was BFing and was always trying to get me to remove my nursing blanket so he could watch me breastfeed. He made me so uncomfortable that I would go lock myself in the bathroom to breastfeed.

I don't think it makes you a slave, your SO probably has his reasons behind what he asked you even if it isn't anything like what I mentioned. You respected his feelings and still fed the baby breastmilk. You made a compromise without compromising you or your child, nothing wrong with that at all.
