    Default Nurse in at Sunrise- sydney

    I'm more shocked by the lack of support by other mothers, and the message they give that covering up is a choice. The ones that don't are choosing to put it out there. Most women don't have the choice.

    I can't wait to bf in a few weeks, and I will be doing it in public I don't care what anyone else says or thinks!

    If my teenage brothers and Muslim father in law can handle me feeding in front of them I'm sure everyone else can follow their lead and avert their eyes!!!

    I'm always saddened but sadly not shocked when mothers tear down the choices and rights of other mothers.

    I don't mean this thread here I mean the volume of comments on Facebook the last few days from women. Just really sad.

    Yes, I guess this is what I worry about. Those saying 'Well I will be discreet and will cover up as it's respectful to others!' It's implying that just because I don't hang a sheet over my baby's head that I'm not respectful or modest etc. and that I must have them 'flopped out' (ugh, I hate that term) for all to see.

I will always be aware of my surroundings and I will always cover up because that's just how I am and how I was raised. If you don't want to cover up then don't, I really don't care! But don't tell me that I won't because I know that I will.
    Just curious- what will you do if you find yourself in the situation I was in today. I ran out of nappies so grabbed the baby and nipped to the chemist 2 doors down. They were out of her size, so i went to the supermarket- also out of her size. So i go to the supermarket in the next suburb (baring in mind that i thought i'd be less than 10 minutes so had brought nothing with me- it ended up being an hour round trip). Walk into the shops and the baby suddenly wakes, screaming bloody murder to be fed. There are no parent's rooms. I'm halfway between the supermarket and the exit. I can go get the nappies with a screaming babe then head back home to feed her (i don't drive, but if you'd driven then back to the car) that's at least 10 minutes of piercing screaming, and everyone's looking at me. Or i could plonk myself down on the nearest bench in a 'high traffic area' (no other option at this shopping centre), lift my t-shirt and undo my bra, where the babe is covering nearly all exposed skin, and feed my child, get the nappies and we all go home happily. I chose the second option, what would you do?

    The comments I read on facebook were from breastfeeding mums!! That they cover up and very discreet and other women should be doing the same, by breasfeeding in public your not being respectful of your surroundings etc etc. Basically what Koch was saying. Which I find totally baffeling, because as a bf mum it's not like I enjoyed getting them out in public, I didn't have a choice. I used to have attachment issues and getting her to latch was my biggest issue, trying to keep a cover over was impossible, and I had a toddler so I could never go in a parents room and sit and feed for an hour, I mostly had do it then and there, sometimes I'd be out with dh shopping and I'd walk and feed because we had stuff to do. I could never just sit somewhere and feed, I may as well have stayed home.
    And as a bf mum I can't believe they don't understand that? I trul wonder how those women who were discreet at all times ever left the house really? But if you did manage, at least have the understanding that it's not like that for everyone and it's not something I was "flaunting"

    On the topic of respect, what about respect for the sex discrimination act? Asking mothers to cover up or move goes against the law. people telling mothers how to feed their own babies are saying a big 'stuff you' to an incredibly powerful and important piece of legislation.

    don't like feeding in public? Don't. Don't like seeing it? Don't look. Have some respect for the law and mothers trying to go about their day in peace, free from vitriol.
