but yesterday I took my sister to the ID card center to renew her kids ID cards. It was on a military base. My 8 mth old got tired, when he wants to sleep he nurses a bit. SO I started nursing him. If you knew me IRL you would know that I am very modest and mousy. I dont wear tight or flashy clothes etc. I had on a short sleeve loose sweater and nothing was exposed. Not even my stomache or my side. I dont cover him, he doesnt like it, and just pulls it off and cries. So I am sitting there and the lady from behind the counter and across the room shouts out that I need to cover up because there are men present. EVERYONE turned around and stared at me. I was mortified!! A lady behind me gave me her sweatshirt to put over the babys head but like I said before he doesnt like it. He kept pulling it off, pulling off the breast and crying and kicking etc.
Later when we were getting ready to leave my sister took the woman aside and explained she understood that she did it for her reasons but there was a more tactful way to have gone about it. The lady came and apologized, and told us that someone complained. She also said in that situation next time she would handle it differently. I am glad she apologized, but it doesnt change the fact that I feel badly and ashamed.

OMG I would have been livid. I'm glad she apologized at least. I have BFed Asher on base and at lots of military stuff and no one has ever complained. People just suck.

You should have asked her if she would like to eat in the rest room or with a blanket on her head??? People suck.... I am so sorry that you were embarrassed about it. Hugs...

People can be such a-holes. There is no way you should have been embarrassed like that or that any one should have complained especially not for doing something so great for your baby, and doing it modestly. Whatever, if someone did that to me i would have took off my shirt and showed them what not being covered up really is. So sorry that you were called out like that.
