I don't think you should ask - ever. Would they expect someone to ask before giving their baby a bottle? That mentality frustrates me to no end.

I agree..... BUT a bottle is not a body part that our society views as sexual. Whether you agree or not, MOST people do view the breast as a sexual thing. I know the breast is there to feed young, but it is also a very sexual object for Billions of people, the bottle is not.
