What is your opinion about breastfeeding in public? Does it bother you? Are you all for it? Is it just a matter of coverage?

I think it is a natural thing and if your baby is hungry, than you should be able to feed them.

I do it and i dare someone to say anything negative to me about it. I am very skilled and so discreet youd have to be a pervert to notice me doing it

As the situation permits: Yes, coverage is a must and hardly need even really be talked about. I don't think I've ever seen a woman breakfeed in public without some sort of cover. If its kinda a casual atmosphere...yeah go for it.If we are in the middle of some five star resteraunt...might need to step someone temporarily. Then again I don't have kids and I have never been pregnant so take it with a grain of salt..

There is nothing wrong in this, if it is required that time. You can not wait for a privacy, when your baby is crying because of hunger but yes it should be covered to the maximum

I have always been a sort of shy and private person. SO I always covered up, but never really b-fed too much in public. My car was big enough to go there and nurse. And anyway, my son did not like distractions of any kind. Any little noise and he wanted to know what was going on. He like to be in a queit dark room, so he can go to sleep. It doesn't bother me when I see others b-feeding. But it did used to bother me when my cousin would just whip it out in front of everyone and not cover it up at all. It was not an easy thing to hide for her, she should have had a blanket or something.

There is nothing wrong with it. I do it sometimes. I just make sure that I am covered up.

I think it is something normal and I don't understand why people are so bothered of it. It is normal. I think there are only "dirty" minds and not "dirty" acts.
