Breastfeeding in public
A recent article in Better Homes and Garden suggested that breastfeeding should be taken to the restroom. There are many that argue either way on this issue. Some say it's not right to nurse in public while others feel that it is natural and human nature. I take a NO SHAME stand on this issue. There should be no shame in breastfeeding your child when it is time. What are your thoughts?

Re: Breastfeeding in public
Hhhmmm, this topic might be better placed in the Breastfeeding/Formula feeding section of the heated debates.

That aside, NO SHAME! I always take care to be as discreet as possible but for me that does NOT mean hiding my baby and I away in a room where people are pooping. I don't eat sitting on a toilet and neither will my baby!
Now that it's getting hotter here, I don't bother covering with a blanket either. I do my best to make sure I don't move my clothing any further out of the way than I have to, and try to keep Ivy's head so she's blocking my nipple from view, I keep a blanket in hand so that in case someone walks by I can cover, but that's it. No hiding.

Come on down and join us in the heated debates.

Re: Breastfeeding in public
I have no problems at all with a woman nursing in public. None at all.
