I work in retail and I see alot of immigrants nursing babies right out in public. I'm not against a mother nursing by no means, but these people think nothing of doin it, say like Mc Donalds, walking around shooping, standing in checkout lines etc. What do you think about their methods?

I don't think anything about it. I've seen mothers nursing their babies and as long as they aren't "exposing" anything they shouldn't be, it's okay with me. I think it's lovely to see that. Nursing babies is much better than bottle-feeding them and moms can't always stay home with the babies to nurse them. I can't say that I would do it. I was very self-conscious when I had my babies. But I don't think twice about seeing it now.

I forgot to say that these woman are exposing things like they were at home. I'm not against nursing by no means.

The first time I saw that, I was a little perplexed. I didn't realized people did that in public! I was a teenager though, and I worked in a busy retail store, so I guess what caught me off guard. Now being older, I don't really think about it as much. They're just feeding their child. I wouldn't do that in public, though. That's what bottles are for, in my opinion.

I have to agree with you, I've seen teenage boys watching and laughing at these mothers making terrible remarks.

No the Americans ask to use the dressing rooms for that purpose out of the publics view.
