I've breastfed 3 kids and I must say, I am not offended at all. I have just never had the desire to do it at a table. I would go off by myself if it was possible but I always pumped and had at least one bottle if breastfeeding was inconvenient. I just don't think it's for the whole world to see.

I think its because, its natural, and you wouldnt put a blanket over your childs face if you were bottle feeding.

I used a blanket, but I didnt where ever because thats when girly was hungry icon_smile.gif

For those of you who left because the thread offended you make sure to turn off the setting where you get updates to the thread where you've posted. We wouldn't want you to inadvertently keep getting offended.

I breast fed both my babies and I did it in public but I always covered myself with something. It just felt like everyone was looking. I guess it takes a different breed than me to be an exhibitionist no matter how natural it is.

The comment about the urinating. Too hilarious.

I'm not offended and I breastfeed in public with a nursing wrap. I don't feel comfortable when there are a lot of men and children in the room icon_redface.gif but sometimes I just have to feed my daughter. I do pump as well but if you have breastfed, when baby wants to eat baby wants to eat. She just starts reaching for it. She's my first so I don't like to see her crying. It's taking me time to get lenient with her and realizing that she is a little less fragile than she was in her earlier months.

If I am at a restaurant I am not taking her into a bathroom to eat as I would not eat in a public restroom either. ( I don't need to inhale someone elses poop icon_surprised.gificon_wink.gif )

I Never would change my daughters diaper in an area where
1. there are other people. Too many perves out there. thumbsdown.gif
2. Where any food comes into contact ie. dining room, restaurant, kitchen. That is just unsanitary and gross. thumbsdown.gifthumbsdown.gif

But back on topic though:
so what happened?? Did you tell her?

Yes, I breast fed in public as well, both of my babies. That wasn't my problem at all, nor was the fact that she did it across from me at the table. I too think it is natural, BUT what she did was pull her full bosom out and placed it on the table and THEN breast fed fully exposed.

Sorry, but that isn't a usual thing that any woman would do, why is it supposed to be accepted when she is breast feeding? She wasn't in her home and it's my problem to look away, she was at a wedding reception dinner with 200 people.

I'm sorry my comment took over the thread, I too would like to know what happened to the OP??

Don't sweat it, some people just have to be offended over something every day or their checklist isn't complete. icon_confused.gif

And I'm sorry, but plopping your boob on a table and going at it is never ok, ok? So cover it up and everyone will be fine. For the record, I breastfed as well, and I wish it were more accepted out there in public, but it's not, and probably never will be. So you can just cover it up and enjoy the intimate time with your little baby, and not put other people in an awkward feeling situation because it's "my riiiiiiight"! Really, it's ok to find a quiet corner. If anyone beats you up over that, then tell them to stuff it.

Oh, and I had a customer do that at one of my cake tastings. I felt bad that I didn't have a private room for her, but she just went and sat on the far end of the room on the couch with a blanket, and everyone was fine. She was done, and we got back to business. Kinda weird, but it was a room full of women anyways, so no biggie I guess.

I went up to her quietly said something about food sanitation and all that good stuff and she was all surprised! Wow--hadn't occurred to her!



I was at a wedding last year. My table happened to be very near the cake table, so I could see the caterer cutting the cake. I kid you not, she cut the cake, then used her fingers and the knife to balance the piece to put it on the plate.....proceeding to lick the icing off of her fingers after EVERY piece. This was a casual outdoor wedding and the caterer did not cut the entire cake, just some of each tier, so there was about half of each tier that remained uncut.

I made sure to tell the bride's sister what I had witnessed...and when it came time for me and my family to have a piece of cake, I cut ours off of the untouched portion!

Yeah, threads go in different directions all the time. It's the internet, it happens. It will get back on track. icon_smile.gif

I get more offended by having to see the boys wearing their pants down around their ankles. I'd rather see a breast than underwear any day of the week! BTW breastfed both of my babies and sometimes had to do it in public. I got more dirty looks from women than men. Men looked away and took it in stride. A majority of the women had to make some foolish comment.

Sorry to keep dragging this thread off the track lol.

So what ended up happening with the OP?

Sorry to burst you bubble but if she made the cake I'm sure there was saliva all throughout that cake. Yuck!!

I took a basic cake decorating class last year and the ladies could not stop liking there fingers while working with the icing, and it was a class rule "do not lick your fingers" and everyday the instructor had to repeat that rule.

I was at cake camp a couple of years ago and was in a royal icing class. The lady next to me kept the tip in her mouth to keep it from drying out. Silly me I just used a wet paper towel.

I have a SIL that licks her fingers when she is cooking.....ask me how many times I've eaten her food?

I'm sorry, I just find it ridiculous that ANYONE thinks its ok to expose themselves in public. I dont want to see someone's big, floppy, lactating breasts, because they don't have the courtesy to carry a cloth or a wrap, any more than I want to see a teenage boys saggy boxer shorts because he doesn't have the common sense to pull his pants up. I can understand a mishap or emergency, but as the everyday norm, it's just not ok.

I think what is silly is that most women take people's opposition to them flopping their breasts out in public as a dig against their moment with their baby and their baby's nutritional needs. That is simply not the case. I have no issues with a woman grabbing a blanket or a burp cloth and nursing her baby in a way that doesnt violate the public nudity standard. I simply don't want to be a part of YOUR special moment, nor does the rest of the general public.

I have no qualms about an infants needs and the benefit of breast feeding...what I dont want to see is someone elses boobs in public. It has nothing to do with the baby...I dont want to see anyone's boobs before, during or after that stage in anyone's life. Just like I dont want to see someone's ass when they bend over or a celebrity vagina when they step out of a car, etc. Everyone of those situations should take the appropriate steps to make sure their assets are covered in public, period.

And changing your baby in an area where people congregate or food is being served is disgusting.
