Should women be allowed to breastfeed in public?

I breastfed my son until he was 6 months old. I recently stopped for various reasons. I'm curious to see how people feel about women breastfeeding their babies in public. What do you think? I believe that as long as the woman is properly covered it is fine. There were a few times I had to do it and I just covered up. I didn't want anyone seeing my breasts.

It doesn't bother me as long as they cover with a blanket or shawl while they're doing it. I think as long as they don't flaunt their nipple in public it shouldn't be an issue.

yeah, most don't want to flaunt it, I believe, but sometimes it happens by accident.

no, go into a room or something. Not everyone wants to see that. I guess covering up is a good compromise. I think there should be a public feeding room just my 2cents

Yes, I also think there should be feeding rooms. There are times when you are out and you need to feed your baby.
