I get compliments all the time. I think it is because my son is such a chunk. He was 20 lbs at 6 months. People have said how healthy he looks, he looks breastfed, I'm doing a good job, etc.
I am always surprised when I get compliments. I am the first in my family to breastfeed (that are alive/I know historically everyone did lol) and it is not something I was ever exposed to or thought about. So when complete strangers tell me I am doing a good job I always feel like "wow thanks!"
