I must admit, not yet. That would annoy the hell out of me though if i got looks like that. What really annoys me is when you find yourself somewhere public and have to breastfeed, is the people who feel it ok to stare at you. I am self conscious enough but when they stare or come for a closer look...myob I say. Far out.

Welcome Lansta!! I'm Lydia, 22 year old married to David. We have 2 little girls Jade is 3 and Lily is 20 months. We're also ttc #3 we have been since March 2010, been a bumpy ride just finished having tests done and all is good and we are on some tablets to help now so June is officially our start again month so fingers crossed I can add another bubby to my family soon! Congrats on your new lil bubby!!!
NicandStu - As a new mum I didn't even feel judged, i think i look older then I am? But since my girls have hit the toddler years.. YES! oh my gosh the looks are horrible lol the only sympathic people are other mum's with kids the same age or some elderly women who know what it's like. I've had to deal with some pretty nasty tantrums from my girls in public and I defeniatly know that feeling of being watched and feeling uncomfortable, it's not nice!
Kimnus - Sorry to hear about the PCOS, don't worry too much yet though, I know alot of ladies who've had PCOS and with the right medication have had no issues falling pregnant!

My baby is 1 month old & two weeks ago we went to Parramatta Westfield for a change and none of the baby change rooms on the directory actually existed so I ended up pushing him around screaming while I was trying to find a parents room. Then some lady decided she needed to say something and asked 'do you think he might be hungry' to which I replied sarcastically 'gee I hadn't thought of that'.
I'm 24. I don't think I look any younger or older than that but by the tone of her voice I'm pretty sure she felt I was too young to cope. So I completely understand the feeling of disapproving looks. Also got some when I had to give up looking for a room and breastfeed on a bench in the middle of the shops (with a wrap over me). People are rude lol.

Thanks Lansta, Dragon Fly & Byronsmummy for your stories. I do feel better knowing I'm not the only one.
Byronsmummy what a dreadful experience for you! I hate having my basic parenting skills questioned like that. I've noticed everyones solution when a baby cries is "Ohh, must be hungry" which annoys me, but for a stranger to say it is just insulting and rude.
Lansta I have so far managed all events and activities around BFing at home, in a parent room or expressing a bottle first thing (if I know I need a bottle it's the only time I have enough to pump) but I can imagine the people who stare. It's not as if we're getting our boobies out for fun.
