Breastfeeding in public is "indecent exposure" and you should be arrested!

A while back I posted a bunch of old pictures of women nursing in public uncovered. One cm member kept saying that if she sees anyone nursing in public without a cover she will call the cops to have then arrested for indecent exposure. Well I just came across this when doing some reading and thought about her right away. Interesting, don't you think?

It maybe illegal for me to walk around in TN without a shirt, but it's not for me to breastfeed where ever and when ever I so choice.

I don't care if one nurses with or without a cover as long as it's done respectfuly and modestly. I don't think there is anything wrong with being thoughtful of those around you.

*If you read my post and there are mistakes in my spelling or grammar please note that I never learned either in school and I am currently learning them now. If you see a mistake POLITELY point it out and I'll be more than happy to correct my mistake. Here's a fun little siggy for your enjoyment. *

I'm all for feeding your child the way you feel is the right way to do so. Be it with a cover no cover or a bottle I say go for it and feed your child.

 I am in TN and it is a common thing in my area to see a mother breastfeeding. Around here if we see someone breastfeeding...wait for it...we see it as a good thing.
