And please do not demonize me for having my own personal opinion when it comes to those who choose not to breastfeed when they are otherwise capable. I can have my opinions on that and still be respectful, and still be a friend to someone that may choose not to breastfeed.

However, back on topic
- bringing it up was for the purposes of explaining WHY I am reluctant to say anything, because she's already on the edge and I don't want to say anything that would influence her to wean early. That's it. It wasn't to bash her or ridicule her publicly on a forum - it was an explanation. End. Of. Story. Thanks.

BeccaSue, thankyou so much! That was the kind of helpful advice I was looking for. Maybe next time we see eachother and are talking, I could just casually bring up the topic of nursing in public, see what she has to say, and then determine from there if I should offer tips, all the while being extremely careful not to make her feel self conscious or imply she's showing too much.
