You really think people are making mental images of you nursing? lol



And you're right. As long as baby is fed and happy who cares.

I have no idea what they're thinking. But no, they have no reason to make mental images of what I'm doing because I just take my breast out so they don't need to. I don't really care about "modesty", it is misogyny IMO. I also don't care how other people want to nurse. I am simply stating that it's a hassle to worry about being discreet IME. I was shy at first, now I just don't give a hoot what anyone else thinks about it. If they have a problem, I'm sure they will let me know - and I will retaliate.

I'm just referring to what you wrote: "You put the thought into people's head, I'm sure they are making mental images of you nursing anyway"

I think she just meat that no matter how you do it, they know what you're doing. And if theyre going to be weird about it, being "modest" isn't going to stop them and it's not the breastfeeder's problem, it's the weirdo who's looking's problem.

Okay? And? If you want to be discreet, then be discreet. It's not my problem LOL. Don't be hurt just because I am not a fan of hiding the fact that I'm feeding a baby when i nurse in public. It will not stop people from making up mental images of what you're doing if they feel like doing so. I see no reason to hide what I'm doing.

I will leave you all with some food for thought. This is exactly why I don't care. I am simply feeding a baby.

lol, yes I get that. I just doubt that people are sitting there looking at me and envisioning whats going on under my shirt. Of course there are pervs in the world, but as long as they stick to imagining and not actually seeing then whatever!
