I am so sick of hearing about how breastfeeding in public uncovered is 'natural' and 'unsexual' so its 'okay'.

I'm also sick of hearing how the MEDIA made breasts sexual - negative good buddy.

One of the things men look for when looking for a mate is breasts adiquate enough to feed a baby - their goal (biologically) is to make a baby so the woman needs to be able to feed one right! Just as big hips are supposed to mean easy birth or ability to birth, big breasts would suggest proper milk production.

Media has nothing to do with that!

The Media has definitely used them as a way to get mens attention but they didn't START it!

That being said, my 8 year old little boy does not need to see your tits. I don't care if its natural, I breastfeed and he's never seen MY tits why can't YOU cover up? What about the men around? Do you want that creepy old guy in the corner going home and wacking it to your boob? Cause he can, and will.

"Just don't look" is the dumbest responce to complaints about bfing in public EVER.

Why don't you 'just not look' at bottle fed babies instead of bitching about them?

"It's too hott to cover the baby" then go somewhere private or PUMP AHEAD OF TIME *gasp*

Bashing comments will be removed - this is about modesty here not bf vs ff.

I covered up when I bf in public. I also had a very light, white, cover for warm days, and I sat in the shade. I would also sit somewhere inconspicuous.

I am one who can't pump. I spent hundreds on a pump, only to find out it just doesn't work for me. Simplistic answers will get us nowhere.

I have no problem pumping but I do realize some women do, in those cases I just request some modesty, carry a thin sheet or recieving blanket to cover up with ya know? I do it so I know it's not hard.

I will not cover. To suggest that I do so is ludicrous. Just like asking a bottle feeding mom to cover is ridiculous. With that being said, I don`t plop my boobs out to feed. I quietly lift my shirt and latch the baby on. The only way your 8yo son is going to see something is if he`s creepily staring at me. And if that`s the case you have bigger things to worry about than my feeding habits
