As in you would be a registered sex offender for feeding your child?

It's not illegal here, but I am often harassed by store employees if I bf in public even if I am mostly covered (you see more in a lingerie ad) and in a semi-secluded section of the store. I was at Safeway after the deli was closed and sat in the deli seating area which was dark and secluded to feed my son. I had 3 employees come to "assist me" and one suggested that I use the restroom to feed my son. The restrooms are loud, bright, and filthy. So, to answer the OP, I think society as a whole has gotten worse in regards to accepting breastfeeding. My own my mom tries to throw blankets on my sons face while he is eating in the car in a parking lot.

I have never had anyone say anything to me while BFing. Well, I did have a waitress at Hooters tell me that if I felt more comfortable with some privacy that the party room was empty, but I politely declined and she was fine with that.
If anyone ever suggested I feed in a bathroom or leave, I would tell them the law says I don't have to. And if they were rude about it or persisted, I would say some very rude things.

I assume the hooters girl was probably thinking about your comfort level in a room full of men haha. That was nice of her though.

Yeah, I'm sure she was. She was polite about it and said I could if I wanted to, not that I had to. Our Hooters isn't really full of men, though. More men than women, but still lots of families and such. I might have moved if I thought anyone was staring at me, but I don't think anyone but the waitress even noticed.
