Strictly redneck. Get a bottle or a private room. Exhibitionists not wanted.

You do what you are comfortable with. You could always use a cover up too. Praise you for nursing your baby. Breastfeeding is really hard work, good job!

We're not talking about the merits of breast feeding. We are talking about the propriety of breast feeding in public and I'm certain that the large majority of people in this Country and not only Gulf Shores are not in favor of public breast feeding.

We also aren't talking about me sitting around with my shirt off and my 12 year old walking up and feeding whenever he wants... You see less watching someone breastfeed than you do watching someone in a bikini... Hope I don't see you on my trip!!

"You see less watching someone breastfeed than you do watching someone in a bikini... Hope I don't see you on my trip!!"

You asked a question and you got an answer. If you want to play it safe, stay home and breast feed your baby in all of the public places you desire to make a statement at. As for down here in Southern Alabama, those practices will not be appreciated regardless of how you feel about them. Do you really believe that bottle feeding your baby when out in public will do your baby harm? Lots of mothers bottle feed their baby from the git-go and all of the times thereafter and their babies do quite well. If you don't believe me then just go to your local grocery store and see how much formula they sell to those who have refined methods for feeding their babies in public. Are you also a tree hugger and a Vegan?--sounds to me like you are one who buys into all of these traits as well as also being into Yoga. Fortunately, most mothers have common sense when it comes to raising a baby and do not use them to just make a point. Mothers are a dime a dozen and no one is impressed that you are just another one. Get over it--you are not an original, your baby is probably not the smartest baby ever to be born and probably not the cutest either. And, if all of the above were actually true--no one except you really gives a damn.

The last thing I want to do is make a point. I normally use a cover, go to the car, or nurse before we go anywhere. I love all the assumptions you have made and I love that they are meant to be rude and condescending. And yes, some mothers choose to bottle feed, but I don't. I will raise my child to be smart and respectful, my milk probably won't make much of a difference, I wish I were a tree hugger, I don't even recycle. And a big rare slab of steak makes my mouth water. I'm a mother first. I feed my child the way I want. And I don't show off or make a point... Sorry I was just asking a question and I don't think you gave me much of an answer... Thanks!

Then why did you raise the question in the 1st place?
If you don't breast feed in public, why are you concerned about how Gulf Shores feels about breast feeding? Gulf Shores is not going into your condo or hotel room to see what you are doing or is that what you were concerned about. You are a nut case and your 2-sided posts prove that.

From what you have posted you shouldn't have asked the question to begin with, you always use a cover up, you go to your car, feed before you leave the house !!!! So you feel people will get offended by what ? It doesn't matter what people think if you are doing it in a respectful way, it's your right to do so, if you start doing with out cover than you need to stay where ever you are at.

I for one apologise for the fact that "Fast Fred" and "Give me a Break" are the best we can come up with to answer inquiries from the world out side South Baldwin County. They are the Internet police and the purveyors of all things bad in the world. I have never seen them be nice to anyone on any topic. So from now on call or email Gulf Shores - Orange Beach Tourism for information aboth life on the Island. These guys need counseling and medication.

Yes, if you want fluff then that is who to call. If you want honest opinions from the people who live here and can take the good with the bad--as most people want, then we the people, who have no agenda, are the ones to ask.

If you do it in public I will tape you and put it on youtube! If you want to show the twins I will make sure the nation sees them!

She might take you up on this since she is most likely an exhibitionist and would like the world to know that she, and she alone, is the only mother capable of nursing a baby. Wouldn't surprise me if she sports a 'TRAMP STAMP' as well.
