I think you should be able to nurse whereever you and your baby feel comfortable doing so. That being said, I always covered up, because it made me uncomfortable having people looking at my b**bs. Not for their benifit.

I breastfeed in public in hopes of pissing people off.
I do it uncovered in areas full of children.
I secretly want someone to say something to me...I really do. I really really really do.

Even if I felt uncomfortable doing it (which I did at first) I still nursed uncovered because I didnt want my children thinking it was something to be ashamed of. I want them to see breastfeeding the way it should be. A way to feed your child.
People want breastfeeding mothers to feel ashamed and cover up. I refuse to cover, even if it were in front of the pope

Breast feeding is natural so IMO no one has any right to tell any woman that they can not BF where they want/need to.



Baffles me how anyone even thinks they have a right to go against it.

That's so wrong, but we don't really know what happened. Maybe the husband did swear and raise his voice, who knows? Not us.



I have no idea about the laws where I live, I'd like to though. I BF anywhere but I use a cover and wrap it around my b**b as to not cover Jace at all but still not show my b**bs, my b**bs are HUGE and I can't be discreet without it. I use it to hide my belly also.

i breastfed in public to an extent. truthfully in the mall its easier to go into the dressing room in dillards and feed the baby on the couch like bench in there. (its more comfortable for me but not because im ashamed to bf in front of people) but if im at a restaurant and my baby is hungry and im at a booth i would bf right there, (chairs are harder to get comfortable in though which is why i always ask for a booth). i will never say soemthign against another mother bfing in public but i have honestly NEVER seen one in my area to do it. its sad. maybe im just not out enough or i just dont notice. also i think my area is full of ffing moms because everyone i know "failed" at breastfeeding even after i tell them not to supplement and use a bottle cause the baby ISNT starving, they dont listen to me.

Before I had LO I thought that I'd be all shy about breastfeeding but once she was here, I breastfed her everywhere. I've fed her in restaurants, airports, airplanes, during a dance show, in the parking lot, etc. It was just not a big deal to me and I don't recall ever getting any strange looks. Most of the time I don't think people even knew what I was doing!
