    Yep same. My DS is now 20 months and I've gone from being happy to feed anywhere to scared to feed anywhere but at home now that he is older.

    I know I will get judged and am ashamed that I feel that way!

    I feed in public, but my problem is with expressing breast milk at work! I can't whip the pump out at a café. The parents rooms are tiny, stinky baby change rooms. Or I've been told to use the disabled toilets. It's still a toilet, damnit! I'm not going to prepare my dinner in the loo so why should I pump and bottle my baby's dinner there?

    Don't worry @waterlily I felt the same once dd hit 12 months.
    I was a proud breastfeeder initially but as she got older it started to feel like more of a private thing between us- and I thought people would judge thinking that shes old enough now to either stop or wait till we get home.

    I still feed my two year old wherever I am. I keep forgetting that people don't think it's normal and I should be ashamed, it's just normal for us. I don't even use a cover, clearly I'm an exhibitionist! Hahaha

    I totally agree with the sentiment of this article. It's totally unacceptable for women to be expected to feed their babies in a toilet/nursing room that stinks like a toilet.

    That being said ... I politley and respectfully wonder how many women use a stinky public toilet with pee and what not on be floor, then don't take their shoes off when they enter their house that their bub is crawling around in......?...

    I challenge you to see how many threads you can legitimately* bring up the shoe debate


    (*obviously use some common sense here ... not in inappropriate threads)
