it seems that whenever i need to feed my son in public, there is never a descreet place to do so. I refuse to go sit on the toilet in the bathroom so i can feed my son. It makes me angry, when i am nursing and i get dirty looks. I use a blanket to cover up and am as discreet as i can be, but alot of times it doesnt matter, people still give me dirty looks. What about you? do you think woman shoul be allowed to nurse in public? have you had any bad expiernces with it?

let them look! just look at your lovely child and let them go! i think you are doing i t the right way! not just get out those boobs! may be if you realy don't like it, you can use a pomp and save it in a bottle? you can also keep it in the fridge for three months, so if you have extra milk, use a pomp put the reserve in the fridge, and when you need you get it out! here we have smal bags you can fill with water(milk) to make icecubes, every icecube is 15ml so you can take out the fridge al the cubes you need! most stores have a microwave i think? but if you don't have a problem with it why not!

it happens with my family too. my wife was very much annoyed over the situation. once we were at railway station . it was around 11 in the morning. the train was late and the crowd in the platform too heavy. son was crying and wife started to feed him by covering blanket. the persons standing near were starring my wife . and seeing the any chance of viewing the inner parts. i shouted also. he did nt move, such an embrassing situation. we could not be able to move to some other place as we had heavy luggage and announcement for train also made. i never forget hsi bad experiene
