DS and i were shopping yesterday and as i was leaving the craft store he was hungry. I set on the bench in the front and started feeding him.

Several people passed, most with smiles, 2 young men avoided eye contact all together. Finally a woman, maybe early 50's came along and asked if she could sit next to me. I said sure.

She was very nice and said i looked lonely (i was shopping alone) and told me how great it was to see that "some mothers still breast feed" and that those mothers had "lucky babies". She also told me how ashamed she was made to feel for feeding her kids when they were small that she rarely left home when they were young.

When Ry was done we said goodbye and ill probably never see this woman again but ill always remember how nice she was to a total stranger.


Wow!! This got featured. That is awesome. Yay for a good NIP experience and for all those milky babies :)

How sweet! Apparently in my Grandmother's generation, women were shunned for breastfeeding because it was perverse. Such a shame. Good for you mama, I will be NIP this weekend and I'm a bit nervous, because my milk literally sprays! I hope I don't soak an innocent bystander : P

That is really awesome!  It's stories like that that make me want to quit being shy and speak my mind when I see things that deserve a pat on the back.   I know that even though you may not have needed her confirmation, it was really nice to be complimented on something so awesome and yet "taboo". 

Good for her and for you!!!

I was nursing at a mall the other day and a woman walked by with her daughter (maybe 4 ish?) and smiled, then turned around and came back and said, "I remember those days. I miss those days...no, actually, I like having my small boobs back." I cracked up :)
