Women should be allowed to breast feed their babies in public without being harassed, amirite?

We've all been conditioned to perceive a nautral process as something taboo, as far as I am aware, most mothers will have spmething covering them when they are feeding and even if they dont, the baby would be blocking most of it anyways unless you're intently staring which in turn is rude. We often turn a blind eye to bullying, racism and violence but as someone whips out a **** (which has fed most of YOU at some point) it's an outrage. Grow up, let people do their things and move on.

A baby does not know time of day or place, let alone know when it is "appropriate" to be hungry. Surely a mother should be allowed to feed her child when they need to be fed?

If they cover up, I have no problem with it. I just don't want to see it while I'm eating dinner, or at the pool, or in some other public place. I understand that babies need to be fed (duh), but I think if they're still breastfeeding, it's the mom's responsibility to cover up or excuse herself.

Most bathrooms don't have little couches for women to breastfeed. If the bathroom is the only place for her to go, and there's nowhere for her to sit, then tthere's no reason she can't do it in public. Come on, you wouldn't want to feed a baby while sitting on a toilet or something, either.

it's not that it's taboo. hell, if it was up to me, we'd all be walking around naked. however, public nudity makes a lot of people uncomfortable for the reason that our society tells us to cover up. i'm not saying that showing your breasts is bad, but you can't tell people they have to wear clothes to be appropriate, create that mentality of decency being modesty in showing skin, but then say "but if some lady whips out her ** in public DEAL WITH IT." it's one or the other. people have become accustomed to not seeing ** at the mall, so forgive me if it makes some people uncomfortable. she needs to cover up or go away.

This is the most retarded thing ever. Are you honestly say that breastfeeding is a type of female oppression?

Breastfeeding is many times healthier for both mother and child, and a bottle should only be used as a replacement only if it isn't possible to use the breasts.

I understand that in some case a mother can't breastfeed, and no woman should be made to feel inferior because of that, but breastfeeding should be encouraged for all new mothers.

Not being a woman or a parent, I can't say, but I do think most women prefer to breastfeed in private - I've seen very few mothers whip out a breast in public where there are available restrooms/baby stations.

But I think when it comes down to it, even if it makes you uncomfortable, try not to look. I don't think breastfeeding is comparable to other private natural acts (like going to the bathroom, as someone said), nor is it comparable to anything sexual.

+99 Reply

Anononononon

I have to agree with others with the fact that she should be allowed to in some form when she needs to, because if the baby needs food that freakin baby needs food, but like the others have said, showing your baby breastfeeding out in the open for all to see should not happen. Honestly, while I would find it a tad bit creepy, I wouldn't mind if she had a cover-up and did it out in public. As long as it was 'hidden' (for lack of better words) well I don't think we should have an issue.

I don't even understand why it's a big deal. I guess somewhere over the evolution of mankind, someone decided that the human body is not "appropriate" to be shown in public. And apparently this means we should either deprive a baby of food or force a mother to leave and find somewhere else to feed the baby.

..And yet the people of Walmart are allowed to be exposed in public?
