Good for you. I probably would have just stared at her and pretend not to speak any English, but hey that is me.

Re: At the pool breastfeeding... immodest?

We went on a small vacation last weekend to the mountains. We went to the natural springs "hot pool". Not hot though except in the therapy pool.

Anyway, there was a mama bf'ing in the pool and I was proud of her. The place was packed, kids and ppl every where and ya know what? YOU COULDN'T SEE A THING!!!! So there pool manager ppl!

Re: At the pool breastfeeding... immodest?

Your story is so similar to something that happened here in AZ recently. A mother was asked to cover up or stop breastfeeding at a public pool. It turned into a huge legal debate and ended up in a law to more specifically support breastfeeding "a mother may breastfeed her child in any place that the mother and child have a right to be" (something like that). My favorite thing was at the city council meeting where this was going to be addressed, a ton of nursing mothers showed up and breastfed during the whole meeting .

Re: At the pool breastfeeding... immodest?

Wow, you are far more of a kind woman than I! I would have been livid. My reaction would most likely have been to intentionally bare a bit more. Not totally, but at least as much as a skimpy bikini! I agree with a pp about pretending not to speak English, too. LOL! Heck, I nurse in church! Not in the sanctuary, mind, but frequently in the lobby. Nobody has said a word.

Wow, some people have nerve! I have little cards from LLL that have the law written on them so I can pass them out as need be. Where are you in Kansas? I'm in KC

Re: At the pool breastfeeding... immodest?

lol..I remmeber when we were camping once and someone made a comment to me at the pool about bf'inf Jude. I had a tankini on, and had the top lifted from the bottom, jsut like I would have with a regular shirt...even feeding him I wasn't showing as much as if I had a bikini on. Well, after the lady's comment, I decided I'd feed him by pulling the top down, instead. Got me a few dirty looks from her, but she didn't open her mouth the rest of the week we were there. Good for you for sticking up for yourself and your baby!

Good for you for telling the manager your rights. I would almost threaten to sue or contact the media!

when I BF Donovan, I used to try to be discrete and hide under a shawl. That was before the law was very clear about BFing in public. With Alex, I do not use a cover, ever. And when we were at Disneyworld, I was BFing on a park bench. I had soo many women do doubletakes, trying to figure out if I was BFing. I was not even sure Florida had a law passed or not!
