    When you get your positive I would love to see if I can help you breastfeed your second even if its not me personally I may be able to give you some direction to great support
    Were you not able to BF your first, Missie Mack?

    And I do have a positive I'm expecting a little girl in June. Will definitely be trying to BF again. Thank you for your offer - that's very kind of you. I have to admit I'm pretty nervous about how it's all going to go, after last time, so I appreciate the support.

    I am absolutely astounded, beyond belief, that some of you think that there are many women out there who go out of their way to draw attention to their breasts by the simple natural act of breastfeeding! This is worse than any man wolf whistling or singling out a woman because of the fact that she is female. How on earth do you expect any woman to feel confident in her ability to nurture and nourish her child in a unselfconscious way when you, another mother, is nastily silently accusing her of showing off her breasts! Obviously, this is why there is little expectation or cultural support for breastfeeding in this country, despite the EDUCATION that is now available.
    I am absolutley gobsmacked! Not once, ever, did I think to announce to anyone that I was "about to breastfeed". Now, I know what some of you were thinking? This is disgusting, and I am amazed that I have only just found out what some were thinking when I was happily engrossed in breastfeeding my beautiful baby. I could not have cared less if you or YOUR HUSBAND, saw my breast! Get over it.

    They're breasts, their mine, and they are nothing to do with you.

    I'm here too! I found having an online cheer squad very supporting.

    It took me a good few weeks before I learnt to feed one handed. I wonder how I was supposed to cover up when both hands were being used to support my baby and boob?

    God I fed for 20 months and scarcely managed that. I was always so jealous of the women who could sit back and rest baby in the crook of their arm and have the other hand free to....text or hold a water bottle or whatever.

    I have seen "women shouldn't cover up because.... " on BubHub before, but you are right, not that I've specifically noticed in this thread. Just as a general observation though it does get said.

    I think it is incredibly juvenile

    I think the *trick* to one handed feeding, or feeding in a carrier, is flexible boobs.

    Flexible isn't exactly the most attractive trait for a boob (possibly otherwise known as stretched :-/) but right now I'm bfing katelyn who's laying next to me and I have both hands free for my giant smart-phone. Got to be some advantage to my boob sliding into my armpits when I lay on my back.

    Thank you, Missie Mack and Bec I will definitely need some words of encouragement!

    And Bec - I never learnt how to do that! I mentioned it earlier (maybe in this thread or another), but for those first few weeks - which I never got beyond - my whole HEAD went under the muslin wrap! At one point my best friend was holding the wrap up for me, while I went under... Definitely would have got some funny looks at Coffee Club that day...

    Oh, just wanted to add, that many times I was "that woman" who sat there breastfeeding her child amidst a lunch or dinner with many others sitting around the table. I wasn't trying to draw attention to myself or intentionally insult the woman who wouldn't/couldn't breastfeed, I was FEEDING my child, oh, and continuing to enjoy life. I never felt I should be locked away because I had to feed my child. I didn't let it enter my mind. I really don't understand why other women are making this all about the woman who is breastfeeding a child, when it is actually about their own insecurities (worrying about husband ogling a bare breast) or their own inadequacies. It's just wrong.
