So yesterday we went to the zoo and while nursing dd two people made comments to me...and they were positive! I swear that doesnt happen as often as it should! Many people just stare at you like you belong in the zoo instead.

So anyway there was a mom sitting on a bench next to ours and she said how much she missed nursing!
And moments later an older man who worked at the zoo said, "none of my boys ever took bottles, you are doing a great thing!"

Makes me have more confidence in our society to see people coming around and appreciating nursing moms!

Anyone else get comments in public, positive or negative?

I had one lady just stare at me. I smiled at her she turned red and looked away, lol.

Once I was BFing in my car and a group of preteen boys walked by and kept walking by trying to look in (I was in the back seat and the windows are tinted, but the front windshield is not) then they tried taking a picture. The flash went off so I'm sure all they got was glare lol.

I did have one lady tell me that men that were breast fed as babies growup to be better men. That one made me laugh.

Aww! That's nice. If I ever see a nursing mom around here I will probably make a nice comment. I grew up in this town and have NEVER seen another mom nurse. It's sad. I nip and have gotten dirty looks, thoat clearing and once a mom saw me, pointed and smacked her dh and made him look at me and then dragged her dd from the park. I was totally covered too!
