I understand that breast feeding is natural but it is something that should be done modistly in my opinion. I will either use a light blanket or a breast feeding cover. Or nurse in the car with AC. I feel that it puts parents to other children in an awkward situation when they see a breast feeding mother and start asking questions as all children do. Personally I just feel that I should not force my beliefs on other people and breast feeding in public kinda does imo because if the parents aren't ready to have that conversation yet it puts them in the position to be forced to do so.
We are all allowed are opinions, and with that, I think your post was nicely put.....coming from a mom who EBF'd their first 4. But, I will say, that I pray my last 4 will see nursing moms in their early childhood development, so I can show them how beautiful it is and explain the entire process to them. I hope/pray that my last 2 girls who were never bf'd, decide one day to "try" with their own children. Seeing other mom's in public bf, is one of the only ways to show them how beautiful and natural it is.
