I don't think it is that big of a deal. Breasts are intented to feed babies. A very long time ago, do you think that everyone had bottles??? NO!!! The way they fed babies then was by the breast. There is nothing wrong with that. It is more natural and healthier. Just take a blanket or a sheet and cover it up while you are doing it. That should help. You shouldn't have to hide to do that. That is just natural. Besides, people can walk around with baggy pants where you can see their underwear AND girls can walk around with shirts that are 5 times smaller than what they need because their breasts are hanging out!! I think that seeing a woman breastfeeding is WAY MORE appropriate then the clothing that some people are wearing here in South Carolina. Keep breastfeeding! Just ignore the critics...do it when necessary!!

Jeez, it's a hungry baby. Issues with breast-feeding are unnatural not mother's feeding their babies. Third world countries feed their children for many years, yet in america our breasts are simply objects for pleasures. This is F*#*^#@ up. I am ashamed and embarrassed for all the people who just don't get it.

One of my biggest pet peeves indeed!

As long as it's covered, I don't really have a problem with it. But, I don't want to see it.

I know...it's natural. So's taking a crap, but I don't want to watch someone else doing it.

Breastfeeding needs to be done in bathrooms, not in public places where there are customers around

I've said this on another forum about breastfeeding and I'll say it here. Forcing a mother to feed her baby in the bathroom is not only unhealthy and unsanitary, but degrading. Why should the baby and the mother have to suffer in the bathroom? How'd you like to eat in the bathroom? That's what they're doing here. I guess we have a new rule here in America...we eat in the bathroom or we get criticized and possibly arrested if public outcry gets the police involved. It must be that...or else breastfeeding would be okay in public. You don't have a problem when you see adults and older kids eat out in public. So why then, can't a baby eat in public...and I mean naturally?

Coming from you, I will take that as another one of your lies, and as always misinformed.

Sorry you lose loser. We all know that at 110 pounds and tight as a elastic band, I am no heifer, unlike what you crawl into bed with. That Bababooey must be a handful. Or is it Milwaukee this week? You like those fat guys don't you twerp? Watch yourself old man you are liable to blow a gasket, we can only hope. Go join Vicky's husband in the rubble.

Well we know what you are, the shit wagon. your full of shit Jazz, so move on, to me you are a waste of time, waste of skin and a waste of life. I seen you for the phoney you are, and you cannot stand that. You have been seen through by many on here, at least those that do not have their head shoved way up their ass. People with common sense, do not fall for phonies like you, and the slut Vicky. That dirt bag, hope she gets gang banged one of these times when she passes out with strangers, it would be what she is looking for and deserves.

Ironic, considering the posters and billboards in the store expose more that a woman breast feeding.
Many states (like California) have adopted laws to protect a mother's right to breastfeed anywhere she likes.
Well it is not offensive, and is not being done to offend anyone, it is feeding a child, who does not pick and choose where they will get hungry.

But I also will say it is the stores right to refuse service, and if she was not buying she is loitering in their store and lots have a policy against loitering. And there are bathrooms set up for this (at least here they are), and they are really clean, and some malls have a section for people to sit and relax, and have seen many mothers using these spaces to nurse. In one of the malls here, they have board games, cards, tv, and really nice chairs to sit on, tables etc, for people to just sit and take a break.

Hope you guys forgive the levity, but I came across a joke on the subject of breast feeding:

A woman and a baby were in the doctor's examining room, waiting for the doctor to come in.
The doctor arrived, examined the baby, checked his weight and found it somewhat below normal. The doctor asked if the baby was breast fed or bottle fed.

"Breast fed," the woman replied.

"Well, strip down to your waist," the doctor asked. She did. He pressed, kneaded, rolled, cupped, and pinched both breasts in a detailed, rigorously thorough examination.

Motioning for her to get dressed he said, "No wonder this baby is under weight! You don't have any milk."

"I know,"she said, "I'm his grandmother, but I'm glad I came."

Did she "apply" them to you occasionally?
