I'm assuming she was feeding a toddler? I've never fed a toddler, I'm assuming its a different ball game and she believes in it being a natural thing and to be available when beet toddler needs?
Maybe she's felt comfortable at her mothers group and didn't think she'd get judged? I also assume she fed like that before infront of the group weekly at mums group hence feeling safe?
Anyhow, I don't think the hating is necessary.
Nothing to do with me?
See, this is my point.
If somebody decides to half undress themselves in my company at a restaurant table, it most certainly IS to do with me thank you very much.
The rights of the breastfeeder is not paramount.
I have rights too, if I wanted to see a half naked woman while eating my meal, there are places I can go and pay big money for that.
This is all about nudity, and a small few taking their breastfeeding rights way too far.
This has NOTHING to do with actually feeding a child, NOTHING.
How many times must I repeat that?
Honestly, this is becoming a joke.
And btw, normal v aggressive was an attempt to describe the attitude of said women.
I will use what ever words I like, not labels.
Honest to god.
Have some off you not read this whole thread?
There are at least 3 others who have encountered this same behaviour.
Yes a boob is a boob, I've got two glorious ones myself thanks.
As I said before it's not only to do with the over exposure but more to with the attitude and just expecting others to be happy to see you in all your glory in a
setting where it is not normally seen and only hoping some one dare approach you.
Someones mummy, I'm not hating.
I described a situation I and a friend found ourselves in because it came up in a previous post and I was actually going to mention it myself.
I'm getting more back lash and hate fuelled replies for that than any one else who described similar situations.
It's ridiculous, nit picking what words I use to describe people now, holy cow!
Right, I think I have more than explained myself.
I have no idea why I should have to defend my opinion from people who are proclaiming they have a live and let live attitude to others.
The words pot and kettle spring to mind but there ye go.
I don't want to see boobie over the dining table,
for those who can't read what I am actually saying I mean a half naked woman with NO CHILD in her arms.
I think that's acceptable, otherwise upper body clothing wouldn't be mandatory attire for us women.
But stone me, lord god almighty, burn me at the stake for having that opinion.
I don't know, I think I'd need her to explain her intentions. But just the way you are describing it and how you have such a big problem with it I think is abit hateful towards it. But anyway, it bothered you alot, it wouldn't have bothered me as much.
Maybe you should have told her to cover up
Exactly Someones Mummy.
I hope all the bottle feeders pack their bottles away asap after they have finished feeding their children, they don't expose the nipple or leave the bottle sitting on the table at the restaurant when they are done. I hope they remember that I am trying to eat when they grab that formula dispenser out to mix up a bottle in front of me, better yet I think they should do that under a cover as well lest I be offended by the sight. How does my partner contain himself when he sees such a thing? And don't in hells name get that bottle out and prepped and ready before picking up your baby because we all know how easy it is to prep a bottle with a wiggling sometimes screaming child in your arms, pick that child up THAN get the bottle ready
P.S nothing against bottle feeding (yes I have done it!) just trying to show the irony.
