Re: Breastfeeding in Public - US magazine poll

i dont see a difference with doing it in a restaurant?? people just have issues and they need to work on themselves. if you're being descreet about it you should be able to nurse anywhere you need to.

Please note that we can see who is posting and when, as well as your ISP. You're not fooling anyone. Also, your writing style is easily identifiable.

This is your last warning. If this war of words doesn't end tonight, US Weekly will be in a position to publicly post your ISP info and notify your internet service provider. This goes for all of you and your back-and-forth nonsense.
Really?? I only posted as myself. Nice threat...

OK, got it now.
I really don't get this reasoning, and unfortunately I see it all the time. Add a baby to a breast and suddenly it's a huge crime.

All the comments about pumping and feeding irritate me as well. None of my DC have ever taken a bottle and we tried several times. I've nursed all three of my DC in public.

I don't get it.

Yup, my dd would NEVER take a bottle. She started taking a sippy cup AFTER she turned 1.

Re: Breastfeeding in Public - US magazine poll

I for one enjoy it when someone gives me 'tude for NIP. I am more than willing to have this argument anytime. I love it when some jerk tries to belittle me for NIP and I can tear him/her apart in one or two sentences. I see it as defending my children and their rights and I will go to the mat for that anytime. I know I am starting to sound like a macho sh&thead but this really gets me riled up.
NIP is legal in CA and harassment is not. One dirty look or snide comment and I immediately ask "IS THERE A PROBLEM?" Damn, these jerks are lucky I don't tandem nurse at Starbucks.

Jenny! You crack me up! Let's meet in Oklahoma, which I heard from Lesli is in the middle, and tandem our twins in a Starbucks at the same time! We'd clear the place out.

ETA: We might as well visit Lesli while we are there too. He, he.
