Breastfeeding in Public - US magazine poll

This was sent out in another group I belong to. I think its silly they noted this as though its unusual. Are BF moms supposed to be reclusive for years or what? Of course I do realize this is a rag, not a source for intelligent reporting.

Re: Breastfeeding in Public - US magazine poll

and HEAVEN forbid that she be breastfeeding a "nearly 2 year old!!!" What a selfish and horrible thing to do. GASP! (Please note the extreme sarcasm!!!)

Seriously, good for her! I am happy that some celebs have stepped forward and acknowledged they are BFing...like Nicole Richie, Christina Aguilera and Jessica Alba. (Even if they do it just for weight loss, well, that is a great benefit of it!) It sends a message that it is normal and good, even if it comes from Hollyweird.

Re: Breastfeeding in Public - US magazine poll

OMGoodness! There is a comment on there about someone nursing a 10 year old! What the heck? Is that just to get people riled up?

For the record I nurse wherever and whenever dd needs to. I sat in the library last week and read a book while she was nursing. We were quiet and I dont think anyone even noticed.

Well, my head is spinning reading those comments.

The ignorance that people dispaly when it comes to breastfeeding makes me want to hide under the covers.

Do some women really get orgasms from breastfeeding?

I think it's funny that *most* of the comments are derogatory and disrespectful towards nursing in public and breastfeeding in general, however nearly 59% of voters said they would do it.

FWIW, I do it all the time. I nursed at Barnes and Noble while on a playdate just a few days ago.

Re: Breastfeeding in Public - US magazine poll

OK< I whip it out wherever I go. I try to be discreet...but my Boobs are HUGE, and my DS gets distracted. Hey, when I am thirsty, I get a drink...and so, does my LO. Anyway, I have had a lot of children come up to see the baby, and they look at me and the baby...and are dumbfounded. I just say, he is getting his milk. And, then my 2 year old says "That's Bubby's Sippy ...Mommy's Boobies" Then, she giggles LMAO. Most Mommy's are understanding...and, I am not trying to give anyone a show by any means LOL

there's a big difference if you do it covered up, i dont think most people mind that. maggie gyllenhaal had her boob completely exposed, not even trying to be descreet.

Re: Breastfeeding in Public - US magazine poll

I feed my baby wherever I am. I want a life too. I will nurse her walking through the grocery store while she is in her sleepywrap. If she needs to eat she needs to eat. I am not trying to do a dance for anyone. People are so close minded and it drives me crazy.
