I just read Megan's blog and she had a post about a woman who was asked to not breastfeed in a store and showed up the next day with other breastfeeding woman to protest. (I didn't read the article but this was the jest of it). Megan agreed with this woman, and although I did start a comment on her blog, due to the length of it I decided to make a post. (And, I left a long comment on someone else's blog and she made a point to stay if you're going to make a long comment you should make it a post on your own blog and reference the original post). Here's my stand on it, and I'm allowed to say it here because it's our blog. I do not agree with making a big production of breastfeeding in public. Yes, it's a woman's right. Yes, it's healthier for the baby, yadda yadda yadda. If you want to nurse in public, the least you could do is be discreet about it. And, before anyone asks, no, I did not nurse my boys. It was my choice and I chose not to. There is nothing I hate more than being out in public and seeing a boob being whipped out. I don't care that there is a baby attached to the end. I don't want to see boobs in public. There are many ways to be discreet feeding a baby that do not involve sitting in a corner or covering the baby's head with a blanket. In my opinion, if you are in a place of business and the owner / manager asks you to leave because you are doing something that makes someone else uncomfortable, don't show up the next day to make a big show about it. That just makes you look like a fool and a twit. And, maybe I'm just silly as a non-breastfeeding mom, but *I* would think that if you are going to nurse in public, it would be better and calmer for the baby to be discreet, as opposed to latching a baby on and continuing to walk around while you shop.
