    It can be surprisingly difficult when you have a baby in one arm and trying to pay one handed when bub pulls off. An extra hand to tuck boob in would be handy. It can be humiliating for the mum, no one intentionally pulls it out and leaves it out.

    Nooo not really, they are unused and fab. Like a collectable Star Wars figurine still in its original packaging. But still, at least I flop mine about only when stumbling aroundb drunk and wearing a super low cut dress/top...you know, the socially acceptable way .[/QUOTE]

    Couldn't have said it better myself !!!!!

    Really, women need all the support they can get breastfeeding.
    The people who have replied that she needs to use a cover are just insulting.
    No matter what cover you use there is always going to be a little bit that pops out before you can put it away.

    I would not cover up or hide. Why should my baby have to feed in a little closed in room or with a blanket over her, like some sort of punishment for having a mummy who breastfed her instead of submitting to social norms and feeding her from a bottle?

    Poor woman . I hate it when bubba pulls off and has a good old look around.
    I'm all for BFing in public. I refuse to go and hide. I would have commented along the lines of how I'm disgusted to read some of the comments etc etc

    It's not difficult to drape a sash over if you want to, but who says you have to?

    Some babies refuse to feed if covered.

    No one, its just my preference.....I wouldnt expect you to start covering babe up just because of my opinion on the matter.

    This makes me so angry.
    Feeding a baby is any way shape or form is NOT discusting and anyone who says so should be put in a room with 100 breastfeeding woman!!!!

    The ignorance of some people is just astounding!!! In the the day and age where somethign as far out as same sex couples is accepted (and even encouraged) a woman is still shuned for FEEDING HER DAM BABY!!!

    If a woman is comfortable she should be able to feed her baby ANYWHERE and NEVER have anyone 'look' at her!!!!

    I hate the double standard at the moment where it seems okay to have breasts bombarding us at checkouts on the cover of Zoo, Ralph etc or on billboards where practically or actually everything is hanging out, but breast exposure during feeding is seen as disgsting, ridiculed, 'not polite'.

    I don't get it. Its like some parts of society truly believe its only acceptable to view breasts as s.exual.

    When I breastfed it felt so much like 'just feeding my baby' that I'd often forget about how uncomfortable and offensive some people found it and I'm sure I sat there with it all hanging out while baby got comfortable sometimes. I didn't go out much, and never fed at the check out but I'd happily sit on a bench and feed if I was out.

    Do people get grossed out watching cows feed their calves I wonder? Is that seen as inappropriate animal exposure? (and yes, I know you're unlikely to be faced with that at the local shops, lol, it was just a random thought.) I just honestly don't understand the 'public breastfeeding is offensive' school of thought that I come across on facebook or on news sites so often.
