I think the assumption is what bothers me. You ASSUME that is why she is breastfeeding but I would almost guarantee it's not.

My best friend is nursing a 40lb 2 year old and her breasts are bigger than my head. You can only imagine the looks she gets. People could very well think "WHOA, SHE IS DOING THAT TO PROVE A POINT HOW GROSS!" but really, she is terrified to even leave her house because of how she gets treated when they are out and her son asks to nurse.

To be shamed and treated like you are sexually abusing your child when you are doing something so natural is insane. The general public is nasty about it and yet all she is trying to do is meet a need her son has.

It's sad.

It doesn't bother me. Maybe her baby is on a routine and she doesn't want to mess that routine up!

It doesn't seem like Jackson's mom has a problem with breast feeding- just the idea of breast feeding in public.

I'm fine with people breast feeding in public, but I definitely think there is a time and a place for it. A mom's room, a daycare room, a bench off to the side in the mall, etc... to me, those are places that I would nurse. I couldn't imagine just walking through a store and doing it, but that's just me. Then again, I'm fairly modest with my body.

Well that's just rude. I would NEVER say something to someone. Sure I can feel uncomfortable about it, but I can't imagine giving dirty looks, or actually saying anything.

The thing about this situation... its not REALLY in public. It's in a *daycare*, where the employees should want the best for the child -- which means that the parent should be able to breastfeed without being judged. I'm sure she's not doing it just to be like "LOOK I STILL BREASTFEED" and I'm sure she'd have no problem if you looked away while she was doing it.

As far as "its not like the kids hungry"...what? Did the baby tell you that? Cause I'm sure if it wasn't hungry, it wouldn't be eating. I'm sure the mother knows when her kid should eat, and 4 hours is kind of normal as far as time without feeding...

you cant just decide when to breastfeed and when not babies are hungry when they are hungry. Its also not posible to stop your life for 2 years for with a infant. Im sure the 5 inches of skin you can see around her head is more then you see in a tanktop.
