so we took our daughter and son to the pool. my son is three weeks old and right as we got there he needed to eat. well i latched him on in the bathroom due to having to use a nipple sheild. well i walk into the pool area with my family breastfeeding and covered(even though it was stinkin hott) well i sit down and continue to feed him. once i sit down i uncover the top of his head so he doesnt over heat. well once he is almost done i start to fan him (mind you no one is around and watching closely) anyway i think things are goin fine. i enjoy the rest of the time at the pool with my family. well once we get home i see a girl has posted that she was grossed out by the fact i was, and apperntly so were the lifegaurds. well no one said anything to me while i was there. **just for the record if a woman with a son had come up to me and said she didnt like it i would have walked inside because it was hott and if she asked nicely** well i comment on the girls status that my son had the right to eat and she conitues to tell me that its wrong of me to breastfeed at a pool where kids and teenagers are playign and swimming. im soo irritated about it because nothing was showing, and last ngiht i breastfeed infront of a woman with a young son and she didnt say anything because i was covered up!! sorry i just had to vent.

 Then she's not a very good friend and she doesn't have the spine to say it to your face either. Not worth the aggravation, forget her! =)

How rude of her to post that for everyone to see! If she had an issue, she should've just talked to you about in in private...geez. How ignorant.

I'm so tired of hearing about this s***

I'm lucky, or rather THEY are lucky, that nobody has ever said anything derogatory to me and I don't cover up.

I don't think breasts should be considered "nudity" unless they are fake. Then you're just trying to get attention in a sexual way.

So, for me, if anyone has a problem with seeing my breasts then that is THEIR problem.
