Honestly, those first few weeks I didn't care about anything except feeding her, I was always out and I had no choice but to walk and feed and basically feed wherever I was, she was attached 24/7. I even went to see a bubhub friend in hospy and she can varify the baby was attached to my boob the whole time!!!! I'm not exagerating
I just don't care about what people think, my job wasn't to be considerate at this time, my job was to feed my baby, I was trying to establish breastfeeding and her needs were way more important then abit of nipple flash. I mean c'mon it's really not a big deal.

I just asked my DH his opinion on public breast feeding and wish I never did . I told him that it's what I'll be doing, I don't think he is particularly happy... He'll just have to get used to it!

- Home, where my life lies waiting, silently, for me.
theres been times when ive fed dd, and i was STILL showing less t&a than any other female around me.
and im currently an Ecup (was a 14D before kids, and a 10C aged 8years old) and used to run crosscountry, so my boobs were floppy before i eever used them.
yay for boob lifts!

I am all for breastfeeding in public and did so myself for 12 months in various locations. BUT there were times when I just knew that it would've made certain people around me feel awkward and uncomfortable if I popped out a boob RIGHT in front of them. So instead I chose to move away from them and do it somewhere a little more discrete. Discrete doesn't have to mean running off and hiding in a cubicle in a parent's room either. It might just mean moving a few extra metres away from everyone rather than being right in their faces...

I never managed to BF DD for long enough to have to worry about BFing in public but I am really going to persevere with this one, so who knows, I might be back on here in a years time ranting at all the women giving me looks in the supermarket for BFing babe as im walking round the isles and having a go at them for living in the dark ages.

Gosh people need to get outside more if a woman feeding a baby is update-worthy. If people are so uncomfortable, stop bloody staring. I've only ever seen a hint of nipple when with friends and she had been breastfeeding and we were talking about it.
I don't come home and say "zomg I saw a woman feeding her baby with a BOTTLE" zomg zomg, no wonder so many women give up considering we have little support then when we do, our bodies are under public scrutiny and ridiculed.

I'll just throw my 2c in here and agree that it is really sad that people are so freaked out by public breastfeeding. The more we do it, hopefully the more normal it will become.
