    I just kinda pulled it back up and I don't think I blinked. But yeah I'm sure someone was whispering 'look at that disrespectful exhibitionsit, I'm eating damn it"

    Baby finishes feed a few minutes later, mother stands to settle baby back in pram, returns to table, still chatting , and in no hurry, slowly puts her boobs away.
    Not your every day breastfeeding experience for most.
    Definitely a bit of a surprise for a couple of new parents who bottle feed.
    (nothing in the world to do with trying to turn on the husband as some have mentioned HAH!)
    Now I haven't seen it since but my friend says its pretty standard for two in the group to do this now.
    She's still not comfortable with it but I'm not in her head and I don't have any advice for her on how she deals with her feelings.
    I was just passing on what I saw and what my opinion was, pretty sure we're all entitled to do that without being called a hater and to go mind my own business etc etc. I never called anyone names not even the women I'm talking about.
    I talked about their behaviour , if you're going to do that in public, some ones going to have an opinion on it.
    Sorry but I still don't see anything wrong with it, especially now that you've gone back to saying there WAS a child in sight. So what, she was distracted by conversation and took a little longer to adjust her boobs. Some women do need to get there boob out before they've picked up their child, especially if they're squirmy.

    It may not have been, but I was bringing that up as an example of understanding to a degree what Little Smile was trying to say. As much as breasts are primarily used for breastfeeding, it doesn't make someone anti bf'ing if they find it uncomfortable to see fully exposed breasts when someone isn't latching bub on, feeding bub, unlatching or putting their breasts away.
    I had another uncomfortable wtf moment when I was chatting to someone in the street, when I noticed her full breast had popped out of her triangle cupped halterneck dress. I was thinking surely she'll notice, but she didn't so I told her. I felt so bad for her, but I still did feel uncomfortable for that moment between noticing and telling her. You don't expect to be in a high traffic area and see someone's breast/s when they aren't out for the reasons that I've stated above.
    -just to clarify, that was someone who isn't a Mum.

    Yeah fair enough, but in the above instances of LS's example, she was feeding but just took abit longer to do herself up. I mean I still don't think it's that bad, if she was just stitting there, breasts out, for no reason then yeah, but she wasn't.
    I think the story did change somewhat because I thought she was feeding a toddler at one point I thought she said she left her breasts out and the baby came to suckle only a couple of times and then she just left them out. Maybe I read that wrong in the previous pages. But when she just explain it above, I honestly do not think she was doing anything wrong.

    I also think if you are going to accept breastfeeding in public, you can't have so many restrictions like 'you must do up your top in less than 30sec' I mean the minute there is a slip up or you just prefer to undo yourself first rather than wrestle with it while holding bub, I think it all needs to be acceptable if breastfeeding in public will truly be accepted.

    I'm a little confused as to why you're now using examples of exposed breast when not used for BFing. Yeah sure, I'd be a little uncomfortable if someone's boobs popped out if they weren't being used for BFing. But that's an entirely different issue, is it not?

    If so, why have your raised what is obviously a very isolated incident, in a public forum like this? As if to make an example of something that is almost non existant, or happens so rarely as to not even be noticed by most other breastfeeding mothers? She's probably a bit of a twit anyway and her breastfeeding "style" is quite possibly not the only issue she has.

    And as for suggesting that a woman has to half undress herself to breastfeed at a restaurant, that is beyond ridiculous.
    Yes the nudity in a public place made us feel uncomfy, yes.
    I mentioned it because a previous poster had told of a similar story and whenever these breastfeeding stories pop up, I do wonder, having had the experience of it, how much the mother was actually showing while feeding their child . I myself have never been asked to move or cover up but knowing there are some who have absolutely no qualms about being half naked, I wondered what end of the spectrum these women who were asked to move, were on.
    So I didn't bring it up to have a go at anyone here, I wondered if anyone else had encountered it, I found one poster who had and I responded.
    I didn't "suggest" that a woman has to get half naked to feed her child, I
    described what happened in that particular restaurant at that particular time.
    I sometimes get half naked to feed my child, but I'm ALWAYS at home, why the hell would I do it anywhere else?
    I know most women would be the same as me but I was describing something that I encountered and DIDN'T like because this is part of what the topic is about.
    It's not an us and them attitude to feeding.
    Just because I'm a breastfeeder that doesn't make me automatically accepting of half naked people, I agree, that's nothing to do with feeding and most likely a screw loose in those particular people.

    That was another members story of her experience in a library

    Ok, we'll why do we cover up at all then?
    If boobs are boobs then how can they be embarrassing in one situation and not another?
