    At the pool today, happily feeding my bpy after a swim while watching my other boy

Everyone that walked in stared at me, the Dyson hand dryers scared DS every time they were used, and to top it off people left their coffee/luggage for me to watch..... I gave up, took screaming DS out into the terminal and fed him there - no one looked or even cared.i decided that was the one and only time I would use a parents room to feed.
    I have had similar experiences. At Melbourne airport I had to feed on a crappy little chair in the corner of a dirty room (DS was very hungry and no chairs left in the terminal area otherwise I would have done it out there). So many women barged in saying the line was too long to the other toilets. Each time this happened DS would jump a mile because they bashed the door against the wall. One lady came in just to do her makeup.
    Also in another parents room I was in some kids were playing with the hand dryer which was so loud. DS became so upset, crying uncontrollably. Took me a good 10 minutes to calm him down.

    I give up on parents rooms.

    Well done to those that were part of this today! Kochie seemed to do nothing but contradict himself, and the reference to topless sunbathers - grrrr.

    I just can't wrap my head around the whole 'be discreet' thing. You don't see anymore boob from a breastfeeding mother than you do someone in a bikini at the beach. Often you can't even tell the difference between a nursing mother and one that is just holding a sleeping baby. If anyone happens to catch a glimpse of nipple then they are looking WAY too hard.

    The issue isn't in what people see with their eyes, its what they think to themselves when they see it.

    The problem is that society sees women's breasts in a purely sexual light and so for a lot of people when they see a mother nursing, their immediate reaction is one of revulsion. Because they don't see a hungry baby being nourished by his or her loving mother, instead they see an act that should happen behind closed doors (a mouth on a nipple).

    To claim that its due to women 'getting it all out' is pure rot. I really wish people who have a problem with it would be honest with themselves.

    I also find it hard to wrap my head around what it actually is about breastfeeding that bothers people, and you're right, it's not actually seeing the boob, it's the 'act'. If this is the case there isn't even any point in 'covering up', because it's pretty obvious a mum with a muslin wrap over her shoulder and baby legs sticking out is feeding a baby, and that in itself would offend people.

    Hang on a second, aren't we after reasonable, mature debate here? Am I the only one who thinks that calling people stupid for disagreeing with you and making pretty gross threats doesn't really fall into that category?

    "Shut up I don't like your opinion" is really no better than "cover up I don't like your breastfeeding" because people have a legal right to voice their opinion just like women have a legal right to breastfeed. Let's all calm down a bit and stay away from the name calling. It doesn't further your cause at all.

    Wtf does 'discrete' mean anyway? I feed 'discretely' ie no cover, it's obviously a breast but you won't be copping an eyeful of my nipple, I only get one breast out at a time and I keep my top on. If they mean discrete as in 'baby is not seen, my back is turned so I can't watch my other child or I go and sit in some parenting area with a curtain pulled across then stuff off. That's not discrete to me- that's uncomfortable, impractical and highly likely going to put me off feeding for more than a few weeks.

    What's with these crazy people??? I don't think i've ever seen a breastfeeding mum be 'indiscrete' in public.

    I think it means *you can do what you like as long as you have the good grace to not do it in front of me so as to not challenge my world view on what breasts are for*.
