I always receive positive vibes from the general public I do use a breastfeeding shawl when feeding though (for myself rather than because I feel I have to)
, does anyone notice a difference in reaction with or without one?

Today at the shops...
I always try to give a big smile when I see a mum bfing - particularly when it's with a newbie. Nowadays mums need as much encouragement as we can get - and who best to get it from than other mums!
I'm still bfing my 16mo DS and he's just started finishing his feed, pulling my face down to his and kissing me just before he dozes off. It's the best fricken feeling.

Well done, OP!
Like you, I always received mixed responses when I breastfed in public.
My breastfeeding journey ended rather abruptly a few weeks ago. I miss it like crazy and find myself looking at breastfeeding mums with a pang of envy.
I smile as I pass breastfeeding mums because it reminds me of a beautiful time with my boys. I hope I don't creep anyone out for doing so!

I am always happy to see ladies nursing, especially in my little town.
Ds is breast fed, i fought hard to master it and then felt embarised when i was as more & more people i know stopped,
I only know one other mum who was still nursing when i was,
At 2 y 4 months i know no one irl still nursing and am under immense pressure to wean ds,
I never know if i *should * smile or whatever out of fear of freaking out or offending the mum, they probably think i'm embarrassed when they're nursing as i avoid looking so as to give them privacy
