Do you find breastfeeding in public offending?

Some people react negatively when they see moms nursing their babies in public. Do you find it offensive for a mother to do such a natural thing? I feel we should be more open to nursing moms tending to their kids in public areas such as malls, parks,restaurants.

To me the child embarrass the mother more the way the react and makes it noticable. I know some children actually tries to strip the mother kinda of funny to think about it....

I dont think it is offensive a bit , ya it may make the mother feel akward sometimes ,but we must all be considerate that she is doing a noble task....feeding a hungry kid.....

I dont think its offensive at all. A baby has to eat, and they get hungry all the time, not just when your at home. I nursed my son in a resterant, at a public lake, and at my brothers highschool graduation to name a few. I only have one person shoot me nasty looks. Actually she kept stairing at me, finally i asked her if she was thirsty, i had plenty i could get a cup. She took off. But it didnt discourage me. My son had to eat, no matter where we were.

I don't think it's offensive as long as the mother is not exposed. When I had to nurse my daughter anywhere outside our home, I would drape a light cover over us just as a matter of decency. Not every mother is as considerate.
