    What year is it? Mothers and women...having problems with breastfeeding. Depressing.

    I will never be involved with the shaming of women for doing one of the most normal things in the world.

    Firstly I never said it was rude or disrespectful. Know what you're quoting rather than talking crap! I said there was a time and a place and right infront of me (someone she didn't even know) without any warning was not the time nor the place to lift her top and expose her breasts to everyone in the club.

    Oh and quite frankly I don't give a crap how you interpret what I say. If all you got from everything I've said is that I don't support public breastfeeding than that says A LOT more about you than it does about me. FFS get over yourself!

    Withnall due respect, you did say you will excuse yourself if your baby needs a feed because "it's called courtesy". I don't think I'm daft but that would imply that not excusing yourself while breastfeeding you would consider discourteous.

    do you always have to be so aggressive?

    Because they were both moments that made me uncomfortable. The first, not because she was bf'ing, like I said I did it, but because her breasts were still exposed even after bub had been put back in the pram, after she stood there talking to her friend and right up until she sat back down. The second, her breast was exposed, but she wasn't feeding. The second was definitely an accident, and the first may well have been too, but they both made me uncomfortable. My point for bringing up the second incident was why is it okay to feel uncomfortable when someone has a wardrobe malfunction and their breast pops out, but not when someone's breasts are exposed well after they have finished feeding?

    Would you have expected warning if she had whipped out a bottle?

    I think it is fairly reasonable to assume you found it rude and disrespectful given you expected warning about a baby being fed "right in front of me".

    My post was in relation this below from hollychops, for some reason it didn't include her quote when I posted.
    So relax dearie, go have a cup of tea or something.

    I'll leave it at that I think. This is just going around in circles and i'm getting bored. I'll just agree to disagree.

    Default Nurse in at Sunrise- sydney

    There's breastfeeding in public.

    And then there's breastfeeding in public with long periods of breasts on show for no real purpose.

    From what I've read on this thread, no one has an issue with the former.

    A few people have an issue with the latter.

    That's not to say they'd go up and tell someone off for doing it (ie. breaking a law).

    But it makes them uncomfortable (ie. not breaking any law).

    What is so wrong with the fact that different people find different things uncomfortable?!?

    Actually you are pretty aggressive and I can read and interpret just fine, I know exactly what you are saying. Maybe you should go back and re-read your posts.
