    I have my tits out everywhere, sometimes the delivery driver cops an eyeful as I've forgot to cover back up properly 😂

    I wouldn't of been "offended" though, more disappointed. I don't think there was any malice, some people still think it's inappropriate, particularly those of other generations or cultures, I try to take that into account and not let it get to me. Perhaps if I was brave enough I would politely say "I'm comfortable with feeding, I don't need to cover up thank you".

    We are getting better as a society. I've fed everywhere and have yet to be made to feel embarrassed, most people avert their eyes if they are uncomfortable.

    That would make me angry too! It's so frustrating that this is still an issue in our society.

    This is me lol. Even the forgetting to put myself back properly lol.

    I would be dissapointed in my DH in that circumstance too. Even if it is his business he had no right to tell you to cover up. And DH's/friends/person with you should say something if you cannot and back you up.

    Default Am I right to be offended?

    Absolutely you have a right to be offended, and so do the kids in the store he was supposedly 'protecting'.

    It so saddens me that this sort of attitude to something so normal and natural still exists . I'm sorry this happened to you, how awful.

    Of course you are right to be offended! It was illegal for him to say that to you. That said- if it was an older gentleman who perhaps comes from a different cultural background (I know I'm stereotyping here!) I would just forget about it. I've realised that with older people set in their ways you'll have very little chance of changing their minds.
    If he was younger give him a smack upside the head next time you see him!

    Thanks ladies, its nice to have back up! Given the barber has previously spoken about his 5 kids one would expect he would realise that babies require food like the rest of the population. I think my main issue was the implication I was doing something that was inappropriate around children. I breastfed my older son when he needed it and only ever heard one negative comment, and it was about me rather than to me so it was certainly unexpected!

    I was pretty put out by his reaction, though not entirely surprised given the state of our 'relationship'. He has previously insisted I cover up when feeding bub walking around the shops because he apparently would be furious if someone said something! Funnily enough bub doesn't appreciate his head being covered.

    Wow of course you have a right to be offended... I would have been worried about SIDS covering a baby with a blanket and told he man as such....

    I would try not to let it get to me... As a Pp said if it's an older generation they probably are set in their ways and won't change the way they believe... THeir wives probably covered up or left the room.
