I took the kids to the mall today so DS could burn some energy. While there DD got hungry. I put on my cover and started nursing her. This lady across the playground thing was giving me a ton of dirty looks. Whatever, I ignored her and kept watching my kid play. I happened to look back in her direction and she was pointing at me and whispering to her friend about me and still giving dirty looks. So I proceeded to take off my cover. Lol. Then she really started staring. I just smiled at her. She left not long after..

Good job. I didn't nurse long but I never used a cover. People are ridiculous.

I seriously cannot understand the problem that some people have with breastfeeding. My mind just will not process that information at all. So what? You're around other people and so your baby shouldn't be allowed to eat? What the hell kind of sense does that make?

I'm surprised she gave you dirty looks when you had the cover on!

I got insulted and dirty looks when I bottle fed, different cultures for sure!



I know! Sometimes I cover and sometimes I don't. Just depends on how many people are around. There was a ton of people there today. None of the kids even noticed nor did any of the other people I don't think. But evidently she was highly offended. Lol.

I don't know about the different culture thing....people used to give me dirty looks and/or rude comments for bottle feeding my daughter.

Op,good job!

I have no idea. But I have noticed I only have this problem with women. Never once has a guy even done a double take while I was nursing, let alone stared or said anything. I had a different woman at the same playplace actually come up to me and tell me I needed to nurse somewhere else

Yup people are dumb. My ex's family tried to put a cover over me in their house. I'm all "You dont eat with a blanket over your head, neither will she."

How did you respond?

People are so damn rude!



She came up and said I needed to leave because her sons could see me.. I told her it'd be a damn shame if her sons learned what breasts were actually used for. She packed up her kids and left. I was pretty floored with her

What an ass hat! I'd of been pissed too. Unfortanitly, I cry when I'm mad (or sad, or happy or bored... I cry alot), so I'd probably of cried and then made a huge scene! haha



I cry when I extremely upset. I was too shocked to be angry. If my sonhhadn't been watching closely I probably wouldn't have been so composed

That's really sad! I would have went OFF! For one, she don't own the mall so who the hell is she to say you need to leave, if she felt that uncomfortable then SHE should have left.
