No you can't breastfeed in front of my kids without covering up

This doesn't apply to public places, but in my home I will not let someone sit with their tit out in front of my kids even if it's to feed a baby. My kids have a hard enough time understanding modesty and public decency without seeing someone do that when they don't understand the difference in breastfeeding a baby and showing your boobies in an immodest way.

I'm sorry that your kids don't understand the difference between feeding a baby and showing breasts for fun.

I don't allow mothers to bottle feed in front of my daughter, I don't want her to see their lazy example and get confused


edit to add:  I meant this sarcastically, as one would hope the original post was.  Apparently she was serious though.....

Haha! Four of my friends are nursing mothers, my son fully understands the baby is eating. You are so ignorant.

I nurse my son, but I always ask if it's okay because I don't like to make people uncomfortable.  In public I use a cover.

How is bottle feeding lazy? Honestly, it's miserable having to get up, and make a bottle at night.

If they don't understand the difference then YOU have failed as a parent.

My kids must all be geniuses because they've never struggled with understanding this.

Even I use a cover while nursing in front of my children, or nurse in another room. My nine year old is aware of what nursing is, but it's inappropriate for him to see my breasts.
