Oh mama

When you get comments like that you have to shoot them down. The way I see it is that if you wouldn't be offended to see a bottle in that particular place, why a boob??? Feed that baby in public and be proud!! YOU ROCK!!

HUGS!!!

I haven't had anyone say anything to us yet, but since DD started walking, I get more looks. I give them looks right back. I dare them to say something!
I don't cover up either, because it makes it more obvious. I've had several times where people came up to see the baby and she was nursing! LOL! Luckily, no embarrassment.

Again, hugs to you. Be proud of feeding your baby! Breastmilk really is best.

Re: Love the advice (sarcastic)

How utterly ignorant of that woman! I NIP everywhere--my child has to eat and I have decided that nursing is the best way to feed him. Period. If someone has a problem with that, then its their problem. I HATE how some people think that we're some kind of exhibitionists just because we want to feed our babies when they're hungry....and not in some filthy bathroom!

I've wanted people to come up in public, but no one has yet. I'm hoping that I'll be able to stand my ground.

Some people...sheesh.

Re: Love the advice (sarcastic)

I have never gotten comments either except from DH. I don't cover up when NIP except for church and she gets so hot doing that. LAst night I BF'd her at Outback and then in the sling at the mall. DH commented that he could see a little. I said "well, I am showing a whole lot less that the lady sitting behind you in a tank top!" He is getting better though and more use to it

LOL Amen sista!!

I was bf'ing today at the McD's playground and a lady (w/a 3yo DD) kept looking over at me. Finally she walked over and I was all ready to defend myself, then she said "Good for you! I breastfed all 6 of my kids. In fact, my 3yo is still breastfeeding." I was so happy to hear that I almost cried!! LOL
