Honestly whether you chose to breastfeed or not is not my concern. I'm sick of all the icky comments about mothers who breast feed and from time to time have to do so in public.
I see a real paradox in some of the comments I hear against doing so. Honestly, we see breasts on display everywhere these days. Just look around you. Thier popping out of tops, their all over billboards, magazines, ads, movies and TV shows. You don't go a single day without being exposed to some other women's cleavage. Sadly we have grown accustomed to that but we seem to have grown unaccustomed to seeing women breastfeed.
It is more taboo to breast feed your child modestly in public then it is to wear a blouse that your breasts hang out of. As women should we not be more appalled by the posters that plaster the walls of the mall showing scantly clad young girls exposing all thier goodies then to see a women feeding her child?
Really ladies we are so mean to each other about this issue. But what are we really afraid of? Are we just insecure about our own personal choices with our children that we lash out at those who make the opposite choice? Are we so sexualized that even breast feeding is risk-ea?
Are you really offended by what you saw or are you just unsure about what to do when you see a breast feeding woman? Honestly, I think most women are just uncomfortable in the situation and they blame one another for thier problem instead of asking "why does this bother me"?
