    Default Bottlefeeding in public?

    Just wondering what your views are regarding bottlefeeding in public? I personally would not do that especially if there's a baby/mothers room available. I don't understand why mothers think its their right to bottlefeed in public. If you're gonna bottlefeed in public, then be prepared that people will stare and talk.

    i have an almost 3 year old who likes to run free, and so i find it easier to feed the baby where there are fences or barriers to keep the older one contained. At the shopping centre, this is often the baby care room.

    I breastfeed my baby, but have found that i am definitely in the minority in the baby care rooms. Not sure if the mums are following your 'advice', if there is a lack of breastfeeding going on or if the breastfeeding mums are just out enjoying the fresh air (and also have older children who listen to them).

    Well, I prefer to use a glass, as it's too easy to spill without one, and red wine stains can be hell to get out. But let the haters stare, I say!

    Oh. You - weren't talking about me? :P

    I think feeding any child anything in public is just an obsurd idea. We should all hide our children under towels to feed them so the general public aren't exposed to any boob, bottle or messy vegemite sandwich toddler faces.
