I'm ticked off at the prude who said that people who breast-feed in public have no manners! I don't expect people to eat in public restrooms or under a blanket, so NO ONE should expect my child to do so! It's a natural, healthy choice, and I'm sorry that some sicko can't pull their eyes away from my breast to see that.

I know, people are so close minded about that. I breastfed all 3 of my kids, and no one has ever said anything to me when I did it in public. I was covered so maybe no one could tell, but if anyone did say something negative to me about it, I would have put them in their place real quick!

I can't really see what the big deal is either, esp. since most women DO cover up to an extent when they're breastfeeding. Funnily enough, it seems that lots of guys think women who breastfeed their babies in public are disgusting; but if those same women would appear on the beach in a teeny bikini top, those same guys would stare until their eyeballs got sunburnt!

It's not that people are unable to pull their eyes away from it, it's because they happen upon it as they are going to their seat, or in a door to a restaurant, or you happen to be in their path. This is truly the most repulsive thing I have ever seen, is a woman breastfeeding her baby in public. I am a woman, size D breasts, a tiny waist and butt. I get stared at quite a bit. At least they are staring at me for the right reasons. When they are staring at you they are staring because they're repulsed. This is truly something that should be done in privacy. Take a hint.

if you're gonna bust out a boob in public, don't get offended when people stare.

Yeah, and it's because of hoochies like you that people find this type of thing (even though breasts are meant for feeding a baby) repulsive! Your a s1ut who needs to feel wanted so you have to advertise your junk!

Wow, brutal! You must have been bottle fed. ;-)

Breastfeeding in public should be no big deal, as long as the baby and the breast are covered and it's not "all hanging out." Breast feeding has been happening since the creation of woman. As long as it's done modestly, there should be no problem with it occurring in public.

Exactly! Well said. Plus, this chickee probably doesn't have children and if she does they weren't breastfed - you can't get nurishment out of silicone. Large breasts and small waist and butt are not normal and 99% of the time false-made! That is why people are staring at her/it!

If someone wants to breastfeed at Publix, I say go for it. I heart boobies, too.

Yea it's a natural thing to do, but not in public. Your just a closet exhibitionist.

Deja-vu all over again. Yours is the most sensible approach. The key word is "modestly." As I remember saying some weeks or months ago, urination, defecation, and masturbation have also been happening since the creation of woman, but society has largely decided that such activities, like breast-feeding, are best done discretely and away from the bustle of other people's lives.
"Natural" does not mean "public."

Yes -WHY? Why should Tangelo Park YMCA have free summer day care and free lunches. Oh - I know why..."help us now, help us now" you feel you deserve everything for free. Give me a friggen break. Stop having kids to get government assistance - that goes for the fellows who can't keep it in their pants and the females who can't keep their legs together.

Here we go with breastfeeding again...Let's all just agree that a woman has a right to do it modestly wherever she chooses and as long as no nipple is exposed let's all just live with it...

As for the speed humps...there is no way you can go over a speed hump at 25 mph without doing some damage...

And to the guy impressed with the golf store...customer for life? Hope they can make it through the economy!

Really? Your pee provides the same nutrients as breast milk? Wow, you should tell infamil that, you could probably make a lot of money as they try to poorly imitate the best possible nutrients a child can receive.

Breastfeeding is one of nature's greatest gifts, so is the way women get pregnant. That does not mean that everyone should start having sex in public just because it is natural. Unfortunately a lot of women use breastfeeding as an excuse to expose themselves, then "act" offended when someone looks at them or comments. If you do not want someone to look at what you put on display, then stop displaying it!

As DriveBy said...

The point, Gator Grad, is that just because it's a natural thing to do, it may still be socially unacceptable to do it in front of other people.

I suppose you would also refrain from complaining when someone insists on remaining in the restaurant, movie theater, etc. with a screaming infant. After all, it's only natural for them to do THAT, too.

SUPPOSABLY is actually a word, the adverb form of SUPPOSABLE, which refers to something that can be supposed.

It is frequently interchanged with SUPPOSEDLY, but it is an incorrect substitution.

I also breatfed all three of my children where ever I was. Nobody never said anything, but I sure did have some men stare.They need to grow up. It is natural and the way God intended on us to feed our children. As for women if you can't stand it, maybe it is your husband who is staring at us doing it and I am sorry you never realized how wonderful it was to feed your own child with your own body.

I don't think they're using it as an excuse for exposing themselves. I just think they're so wrapped up in and absorbed with their own maternity that they get aggressively activist about breastfeeding, as though the world should cater to the demands of a nursing mother, the whole world should revolve around them, and they can't understand why it doesn't. Despite the existence of the baby, it's an extreme form of self-absorption.
