I swear, every time I mention my cover people get all hyper-spazzy. I mean come on, maybe your kid doesn't like their head covered. Well you know what? My DD couldn't care less, in fact she LIKES the cover. She associates it with eating and she also associates it with getting a break from the crazy world. Hmmm... maybe my child is different than yours. OH WELL!

Bottom line: I am not saying anyone else has to use a cover. I AM saying that it is also anyone's right to use a cover and say they use a cover without hearing all the junk about how it's wrong or whatever the excuse of the day is.

You don't have to like my decision, but I do ask that you respect it, just like I respect yours.

Like I said in my last post, I have no issues with a woman covering up if SHE wants to. I do have a problem with men and other people making that woman feel as though she needs to cover up while breastfeeding. To be honest, it was your "true gentleman" comment that got to me. I read it to my DH before I even told him my opinion and he immediately said "a true gentleman would be happy to see a Mother breastfeeding her child".
