Well, I guess every family has "The Crazy Aunt" I would go and just do what you need to do.

Honestly, I'd be on the phone with auntie and say "I'm sure my mom misunderstood, but she mentioned you didn't want me to feed the baby at the school?" we would be hashing that foolishness out ASAP, but I am a confrontational person, especially regarding topics I am passionate about and BFing is one of those things

I agree!

I would go and be sure to nurse... often. LOL Or I'd just stay home and send my aunt an email saying I thought she needed to read up on breastfeeding laws and that it is pretty ridiculous to expect a baby to NOT eat if it gets hungry.

I would have gone and if the baby got hungry, nursed. She can kiss my rear.

I would be offended!!!

I'd also tell her it's my right and protected by the state, best for my baby, her opinion is not only unwelcomed, but unsupportive. Then, I would go and do it anyway.

If it was me, my take is that bubble needs to be burst!!!

I'm not saying go and do it out of pure spite, but go and do it, because it's how you live you life; NIP is totally normal. She can get over herself.

If it was at her house, I wouldn't go... EVER! Not even when my kids are older and I'm no longer BF'ing, not on my own, not for holidays or family gatherings. If I'm not welcome because I breastfeed, I shouldn't ever feel welcomed in her home. Period, end of story for me.

I didn't go. My mom didn't end up going either (for a different reason--the AC was being fixed in her house). I will definitely be bringing it up with my aunt. My mom already knows how I feel about it but she isn't backing me up. She kept saying that there would be young boys there There are some big family dinners coming up in September that my aunt will be at with her family. DH and I will have to decide if we will go (I'm leaning towards not going--I don't think that the dinners will be at her house but I still feel very unwelcomed). I will be bringing it up either way with her though.

Thank you all.

If it's mostly your aunt, I wouldn't let her chase away from family events. As for your mother, Id give her a serious talking to about being supportive of your parenting choices, including BFing. It's hard when it feels like a battle. Sorry mama.

All of the moms nurse around other kids where I live. If a child can watch kittens nursing, why not another mammal, a baby?!
Yeah my brother once said something negative about nursing at his house and I about lost it. I'm sure he'll never say anything about it again.
