terrible things happen when children are exposed to breastfeeding, you guys.
OH THE HUMANITY! ;]
If I am sitting right across from you, how am I going to miss that? In this particular case THE HUSBAND was trying to get his wife to cover up and she caught an attitude with him. I think if you are in a public place, you should have some respect for the other paying customers as well. Bf does not give a person free reign to do whatever, whenever.
It is another way to look at it. Do I think guys are lusting after me when they catch a glimpse.. probably not. I’m no model. Lol.
ETA: Me and DH had a conversation about how he feels about public breastfeeding, after a friend of mine breastfed her daughter, sitting beside him in a restaurant (she didn’t really think about the fact that he was right beside her) … when she realized it, about 10 minutes into the feed she apologized to him, but he hadn’t even noticed LOL! He thinks babies just need to be fed, and if it happens to be beside him in a restaurant, its no big deal … he will continue eating his steak!
I really don’t understand the big deal? If you don’t like it then look away. Besides, most of the baby’s head covers the breast so its not like much is exposed anyway… the exposure is just the top of the breast, similar to the effect of non breastfeeding womens breasts when they wear push up bras. Breats were created as a means to feed children, they were never created to be a sexual thing- society has done that. Babies need to feed, if a women doesn’t want to cover up or sit in a disgusting bathroom to feed her child then she has the legal right not to do that.
Breastfeeding is hard enough for some women without this added debate of breastfeeding in public. Alot of people turn their noses up at women who dont breastfeed, yet a woman feeding in public is wrong? It makes things alot harder. And all of the ‘uncomfortable’ comments usually come from women, not men. Maybe it’s female jealousy or competeition… who knows.
Breastfeeding isn’t a sexual thing, so I just don’t understand how people can find it uncomfortable?
Mr. Tattoo said “Isn’t that what moms are suppose to do?” Again, it’s only women trying to tear other women down. You will never see men in a heated breastfeeding in public debate because it’s stupid to them. Babies have to eat. Simple as that.
I just equate this with the exchange of bodily fluidis in public…I couldnt just sit there pissing myself while eating, what would we let a mother express her bodily fluids around other people’s food?
Because “piss” isn’t food. Milk is.
