    I've had more positives than negatives in public and same I just smile brightly at them trying to glare me down. Cos I know I'm awesome they can just go suck lemons

    The best one was a dude on the plane kept turning in his seat in front of me to glare at me.

    Well Sorrrreeee dude there's no discreet way to breast feed a 3 year old sitting next to me because we both had to keep seat belts on in the air while 5 months pregnant. But here's a thought.... don't turn around! So I just beamed brightly every time he turned around.

    Douche.

    This has made me feel more confident when baby comes along, 10 years ago I had a lot of comments made to me and about me when I fed my daughter in public. I have never really known if it was because I was young, I was 21 but looked about 15, or because I was bf in public. I am looking forward to seeing if there is any different now... although I have been nevous that I will have bad reactions again.

    Haha I have a 10 yr old DD and a newborn DD! I got asked how old I was a lot too.
    I'm glad you feel more confident I was nervous initially, then thought stuff em!

    I would feel weird if someone smiled at me while BFing, just continue on and mind your business. I have never had any comments neg or pos, I just do what has to be done.

    Everyone certainly is different. I know it makes my day when someone smiles or positivly comments on me BF'ing in public.

    I saw a lady BF her newbie in Medicare a few weeks ago (my little girl was in the car with DH) and took care not to stare just acted normal but realized later I should of given her a positive comment, I would certainly be ok and happy with someone giving me a positive comment
