They are feeding their kid...period...I don't care if it is with a bottle or a breast. I would prefer my kids not to be flashed with the entire breast during the process. Again, you can access the nipple without exposing the entire upper torso in the process.

You do what you want...I will do what I want. I'm not on any crusade, and I don't insist people think like me. I also am not going to be devastated, heartbroken, or feel like a failure if I cannot nurse this baby. As long as I feed him, I'm happy.

why not....it's just "extra skin"????

Re: maggie gyllenhaal

They are taught to respect the human body and respect other people as well; I find it disrespectful for nursing mothers to push the fact that it is their RIGHT to NIP into everyone else's face. If the primary concern was to feed the child, then where is the "show"? Nursing in public with the entire breast exposed is often unnecessary to get the job done. I am about getting the job done, not making a statement of my right to do it while I'm at it. I'm just trying to feed my kid.

I consider a little discretion to be a nice middle ground. I don't have to be fully exposed to get the job done, so I won't.

Women don't cover up in other countries most of the time because breastfeeding IS NOT A SEXUAL ISSUE. Unfortunately, our society has oversexualized the femal body, AND has not been accepting of BFing in public which causes people to feel uncomfortable with an almost bare breast showing if there is a baby attached to it. It's doesn't have to be like that at all. If she were sitting in the park with her boob hanging out for no reason at all, then I'd be bothered. But she's feeding her baby. What you should teach your children, along with modesty, is respect for the human body. Teach them that seeing a bare breast with a baby attached doesn't have to be sexual in nature. They're useful for more than one thing.

On the longies... they don't really look like longies to me. They look like striped tights for under a dress.

can you imagine that now that would be something to get tifted about

Re: maggie gyllenhaal

also, even nursing shirts "expose" the breast therefore it is not always easy to nurse "discreetly". i'll be darned if i cover up my child's head w/ a blanket or anything else. i had a nurse cover my newborn son's head while he was nursing and i got her fired.

i'm tired and i don't know if that made sense or not...hopefully it did
I totally get you mama! Yes!
Some people need to take a deep breathe and........relax. If its just extra skin then why take issue?

Well whatever but honestly we dont know that she didnt in fact cover up discreetly as soon as baby was latched anyway. This photo is only a glimpse of what could have taken place.

unfortunately for you IT IS a right. I dont' try to make a statement while nursing...BUT my child does not and will not eat with a blanket on her head or in a bathroom just b/c they like the feeling of skin on their hands while nursing. ALSO if I wanted to just "get the job done" I'd give her a bottle of BM There is a diff. in getting the job done and NURSING your child. So for us it was going to the car that felt appropriate but I think it's about dang time people stop doing that. As a matter of fact we won't be doing it after this baby is born
