There are options: BF mothers can use bottles while they are out in public by pumping breast milk.

I never went out alot as a toddler, we weren't that well off & only ate out once a week. I guess I expect everyone else's kid to behave as I was expected to behave.
So, either mothers should feed their children in a car, in the bathroom, pump beforehand, or stay home? I'd LOVE to sit in a stuffy car or smelly, unsanitary bathroom while giving my child a meal. That sounds so delightful. There's no reason for a mother to have to pump beforehand when there's not even any skin being shown during NIP.

I think you should start eating meals in a restroom. I'm sure your burger, pasta, or whatever you're eating would be very appetizing while someone is taking a huge poop in the stall next to you.

I personally think it's VERY important to socialize your child from the time they're infants. My parents took me on a plane for the first time when I was 5 weeks old, and even took me on a flight from Boston to Hawaii when I was 18 months. They took me to restaurants often, and I'm still so appreciative that they didn't keep me locked inside a house just for being a kid.

Just wow DogDragoness, I hope you never decided to come visit BC, there are half nude or fully nude Hippies, while breastfeeding everywhere, oh the horror.

Seriously get over it. It is what is natural. And if you have issues with mother's breastfeeding in public, then leave.

While I'm not a 'fan' of breastfeeding in public, I don't have any ill will towards a mother who wishes to do it. I'm a fairly modest person and I really don't like much skin showing. (Those vagina cut jean shorts? I don't like those either. )

I would never ask a mother to leave so she could breastfeed. However, I would hope she would try to be discreet. Feeding your child is one thing, just plopping everything out there is another.

I rarely see it here, whether that's from scared mothers or lack of people who breastfeed... not sure.

I can't say I've ever really come across a feeding mother who I wanted to leave the area.

Usually they are pretty discreet and the ones who aren't... well.. Those are the Westboro Baptists of the group. Much like DD's views on this subject.

San Antoni ois not like that. I have vacationed there and have family there. I have seen
NIP going on. YOU just have hangups and may need professional help. Especially with saying you have a Mexican BF. Most Mexicans americans I know all BF. (I know sterotypeing but true in my case.)

Most women I see nip are so discreet you probably wouldn't even notice unless you were looking for them. It's really just a passing thought for me 'oh good for them' kind of a thing. Seriously not a big deal. I've never seen someone just 'plop it out'.

In the end though? Who cares? I will say don't go to the Caribbean. You will see lots of boobs and nakedness and not all are attractive.

I'm not talking about people who "shouldn't" be wearing bikinis

Like I said, even ONE PIECE bathing suits show more skin than breast feeding. Heck, even low cut tank tops show more skin.

Even if people 'shouldnt' wear bikinis, it is their right to if they want. Don't like it? Don't look.

Eta: honestly he world would be a better place if we all stopped judging everyone else and minded our own business.

I'm sooo glad my husband was raised by a woman who would breast feed anywhere without shame (she had 8 kids, that would have been a LOT of time spent in restrooms). He thinks it's totally bizarre that anyone would have a problem with public breast feeding.

Dog- maybe if you clarified why nursing bothers you we could see why these comparisons are failing in your mind.

Noise? Why are loud eaters or obnoxious laughers not the same?

The sight? Why are fat people in revealing clothes or skinny people in revealing clothes not the same?

Exactly. There are ALWAYS going to be people who feel you "shouldn't" wear something. You'll always be too small, too big, too old, too young, etc, in someone's opinion.
