    My thoughts exactly! It's insensitive? Wth is it insensitive???

    If breast feeding your child in front of non breast feeding mothers is insensitive then so is taking your children to places where childless people might be lol.

    Nope, unnecessarily exposing yourself in front of other mothers and their husbands is carry on. And I mean unnecessary. Not the average breastfeeding that most of us do. I'm big busted and I can feed my an without having to show the world all I've got. What I meant by carry on is sitting with a group of people at a lunch, most of which you would never have met before, their husbands there and then oh hello, full breasts popped out, no warning or, don't mind me I'm just going to feed bubs, just popped out for a good minute or so while they pick up baby and get comfortable.
    That to me is carry on.
    I think there's only so much you can expect of people you don't know.
    i wouldn't expect a man or woman I barely knew to feel comfortable with me sitting there over a lunch table with my breasts hanging out.

    Yeah look, what I meant by insensitive was dangling your boobies in front of the husbands of women who aren't breastfeeding their babies because they just couldn't.
    Thats insensitive to other mothers in my mind.
    If there's any women on here who couldn't breastfeed their child and is still upset about it, how would you feel if at a mothers group one mother just whipped them out and fed her child in front of you and your DH ?
    Now look I'm going off an experience I've had, and these particular mothers were not in a hurry to get the child latched on if you know what I mean.
    I'm talking extreme behaviour not the average breast feeder,sorry if I'm not making myself clear, I've got two children pillow fighting on the bed behind me.

    Yeah well I just think if you're mid conversation with some one at the time how hard is it to say, " don't mind me but I need to feed baby " and then go about it however you do. We can't be asking for complete acceptance and tolerance if we are ignoring what would be just common courtesy or manners in my opinion.

    I couldn't breastfeed my DS2, he actually couldnt even bottle feed properly to start out due to medical issues. And it was emotionally hard for me to accept I couldn't feed him. But I have absolutely no problem whatsoever with someone breastfeeding their baby as you have described, in front of me and my husband. My husband is a huge advocate for breastfeeding and the rights of breastfeeding mothers. It doesn't make me uncomfortable and I say to feed your baby wherever, whenever, however is easiest for you.

    When I was nursing my dd, I swear I was just in a sleep deprived haze some of the time and getting set up for nursing her was often a slightly clumsy process. You just get so focused on feeding your baby you forget what order things have to go in. I have heard stories of women feeding their baby in the drs waiting room, putting bub back in the pram and then standing up to walk into the doctors office, completely forgetting to put themselves away. Maybe it isn't like that for everyone but for some, you can become a little absent minded.

    I personally never announced or excused myself for breastfeeding - I didn't like to draw attention and didn't feel like i needed permission to feed.

    Well done to all involved especially Atropos and GreenMama. My power decided to cut out at 7:30 so I missed the interview (grr after suffering through half a morning of Sunrise), but from what I've seen on the net you did a brilliant job Atropos.

    I've got to say, all I've ever wanted is a baby of my own, and I fully intend on breastfeeding them. But I've never found it insensitive when my breastfeeding friends (who know we're TTC) feed their baby. After all, when a baby needs to be fed, you feed them, right?

    I couldn't breastfeed my DS and it still hurts but I couldn't give a toss if a woman bf'd her baby in front of me or my DF. I often fed DD at mother's group, of which there were often some fathers there too. Should I have announced it before a feed? Wouldn't that be attracting more attention? We often sat around a dining table with coffee and morning tea, we ate and drank, why shouldn't my baby?

    ETA: My DD refused outright to take a bottle and I really REALLY wanted to give her a bottle of EBM sometimes. She was a ferocious booby monster and would fed for hours on end, it affected my mental and physical health. By your logic should a bottlefeeding Mummy not feed in front of me for fear of offending me?
