Grave digging!  But what is so hard about wearing a tank top under a regular shirt and pulling one shirt up, one shirt down to nurse, I have no idea.  I’ve breastfeed DS everywhere – church, restaurants, the grocery store, coffee shop, etc and no one’s ever seen a thing (I had my sister on boob watch to check in the beginning lol).

Happy medium people; no cover, no boob, no problem. 

Black stockings 😂. Love it!  Those sexy ankles…

EmilyBre:  next time youre hungry, feel free to eat under a blanket and let me know how that goes for you.

SOME babies will sit content under a cover, some will not.

myself and my kids are very hot by nature. I get warm nursing my daughter in my air conditioned house.

if you don’t want to see me feed my child then keep walking or turn your head.

lord have mercy on the poor soul that tries to tell me not to feed my hungry daughter while I’m out and about getting shit done.

i see more boob walking around the store.

yes… Us breastfeeding moms just want to whip our boobies out. Absolutely, I’m trying to seduce your husband… Because I don’t want mine anymore.

shame on you.

UpstateCait:  Sorry, but doing it uncovered is showoffy and verges on tacky.

It doesn’t take any planning to have a hankerchief in your diaper bag to drape over you and your baby.

EmilyBre:  +1,000 and bravo to everysingle thing you said.

 

I think it’s disgusting and not smart, given the proliferation of smart phones and social media.

I wonder how the proud mamas would feel if they spotted themselves and their areolas on YouTube?

Seriously, just go to YouTube and do a search on “woman breastfeeding in public” and see what pops up.

You could even have your name tagged or attached to the video if it were taken by someone who knows you and has a beef against you. Now you’re looking at future potential employers doing background/social media checks on you and your ta-ta’s.

Whatever happened to common decency?

lovelybee135:  So….that’s a thing now? You won’t get hired if you’ve breastfed your baby in public? I’m confused, and bummed out. Guess I can’t apply for any jobs now. Damn.

lovelybee135:  Seriously, its not girls gone wild.  It’s a mother feeding her child.  If a potential employer thought that was distasteful and didn’t hire me, I’m pretty sure I wouldn’t last long at the job anyways.

lovelybee135:  Just to be clear, if some weirdo repressed voyeur films a woman feeding her baby in public and uploads it to YouTube, it’s the woman’s fault? And also (again in the interest of clarity), we are saying that being caught in such a YouTube video is shameful and potentially damaging to her career why… because potential bosses did not know she had breasts before creeping on YouTube? Since when is breastfeeding a type of revenge porn?

Babies be babies. They gotta eat. Look away if it bothers you but maybe stop getting your panties in such a puritannical wad about what other people do with their bodies.

I find it silly that this is such an issue, the only time I ever thought it was strange to see a woman breastfeed it was a child of 4 or 5 years on the train opposite me but I know that is not my business and didn’t stare or comment or anything. Otherwise there is nothing unusual, offensive or tacky about breasts especially being when being used for their natural purpose. I can’t believe women are so uncomfortable of their bodies or to seeing other women’s.

I wouldn’t have a problem with other people doing it at all- afterall, it is one of the most natural things in the world, but I just wouldn’t do it because I’d always be paranoid that some sicko was taking videos and posting it on some sites or that I would get into some sort of verbal altercation with someone that got nasty with me. That isn’t something I would want to engage in around my child and unfortunately, it does happen because people out there are nuts. The fact remains that the laws and public opinion don’t normally support women. It’s sad and disgusting, but it is the way things are. I applaud the women that don’t care, but I know that if something were to happen, I probably wouldnt handle it well.

I didn’t necessarily mean to imply that it would result in “not being hired.” Although I guess in certain types of high profile jobs (public relations? TV news anchor?) it might be detrimental. 

The point I was making is this: Just the thought of people Googling my name and seeing my t1ts and I in public would be horrifying enough.

Maybe you should put your money where your mouth is and snap a picture of your nipple and attach it to your resume.
