And are tired of being judged for it,

If you know you will be going out, and have the time to prepare to go out, why dont you just pump and bottle feed when out? this is just a question, so try and avoid taking a bite out of my ass about this. but seriously, if you hate being judged about it, and know that people will judge you regardless if you "take a stand!" or not, why not just pump??

EDIT: Its so funny how you women think I have an issue with breast feeding. I breast fed. I also pumped when my daughter was in the nicu, and did fine. I was saying to the girl who complain about being stared at, gawked at, and judged, why not pump? Not just the women who NIP. I am not offended by bfers. DAMN!

I didn't know that every woman on here could not pump. who'da think?

I dont care about the bottle, what bothers me is that they just feel the need to expose themselves like seriously whats so hard to cover up with a blanket or shirt? It takes two seconds to pack it up

*I* was uncomfortable nursing in public without a cover. No big deal.

My babies never took bottles first of all.  Secondly I shouldn't have to go to all of the work to pump (which many women don't respond to) and deal with all of that just because some people can't get over a very natural thing.

I did not care one bit to be judged. My dd did not bottlefeed. I breast fed. Period. The end. Judge away. It only shows the closed minded stupidity of the person judging THE FEEDING OF AN INFANT, for crying out loud.

I breastfed two babies in public all the time. They never took bottles just because we were out. Why should they? I also never had an issue or felt judged. I wouldn't care anyway though.
