Breastfeeding is cool. LOL But would I want my kids to be sitting across at a nice place/function to have some one whip out her boob? HELL NO!!! While every one has to eat people need to remember that while they might be comfortable with their actions others are not! If one of my cousins did that I would say something.

Always want respect but never willing to give it!

I have a simple suggestion--look away. That's what I do when I see the boys in their baggie pants or sometimes even worse skinny jeans for boys.

Never did I "flop" out my breast and I did use a blanket but seriously to have such an aversion to the human body. Wow and I thought I was uptight!

Just as easily as people can look away...people can just be courteous and --cover up.

Besides, in the situation described, it's distracting. What's that saying? "It's like a train wreck, you can't look away". Once I notice it, it begins to feel like the uncensored elephant in the room. I don't want to be sitting in a booth at a table and have the woman across the next table, in my line of vision, pop her boob out! I shouldn't have to stare at the wall because she wants to be semi-topless at a restaurant. There are some things you just don't do.

The kid walking around with his pants hanging off of his ass and his underwear exposed also isnt sitting his heiny on your dinner table. *yuck*

I don't know some of these shirts nowadays could be considered semi-topless lol. The low cut shirts and push up bras and you see more flesh than any baby could expose.

I understand what you are saying and yes I covered it up but you are feeding your baby. I guess I just don't understand the big deal. If someone is feeding their baby I either look away or find something else to look at or talk to the person I am with. I hate having to hear people on their cellphones when I am trying to eat or are using expletives but I drown their conversation out and go on my merry way.

Thanks for using "pop" instead of "flop" lol makes for a better visual. thumbs_up.gif

When I see people running their hand through their hair, wiping their nose, licking their fingers, licking the spoon and putting it back in the bowl, pan whatever....and then handling food, "anything" like that..I'm not eating...period..

I covered up if and when I had to nurse in public for the same reason I make sure my thong doesn't show when I bend over, or I don't let my bra strap hang out of my shirt and I cross my legs when I sit down, it's "lady like" for a lack of better words.

Growing up, my mother was fond of saying "Be respectful." And I think that's the bottom line. I nursed two babies and often had to do it in public. I was given the courtesy of never being asked to nurse in a bathroom or somewhere else gross. I also respected everyone around me by trying to keep things covered up. If you're not feeding my baby, you shouldn't have to see my boob and I shouldn't have to see yours!

Some people still have issues...even if covered up. I was at my in-laws visiting, and my sister-in-law had two friends over, both single women in their mid to upper twenties. We were downstairs watching television. I put a HUGE blanket over my baby to feed her. They both, at the same time, put up their hands to the sides of their faces to "block" their view from me. I didn't know what to say. All I could think of is.... how immature. I avoided them from then on.......

I know I'm not helping with the main topic, but I couldn't help but mention this.....

To those women who find the quiet corner and cover up - thank you. I'm one of those people who doesn't like to see women breastfeeding in public. I wouldn't say I'm offended, I just don't particularly care to see that when I'm out and about especially when I'm eating. I understand it's natural, and I don't freak out over the naked body or any of that crap. But it's irritating when women just assume that everyone is as warm and fuzzy about their breastfeeding moments as they are and even more annoying when they're offended by someone who might object.

I can look away and I do, but you can also have some awareness that not everyone feels the same way you do about it. And while I'm at it, I would like to extend similar thoughts to the stroller mafia. You're taking up the entire sidewalk with your stroller, two dogs on leashes, a latte from Starbucks and, because you're on your cell phone and not paying attention to your surroundings, you're spilling that latte all over the place, people are tripping over your dogs and your child is screaming at the top of his lungs. Trust me, it's not a heartwarming scene.

I popped over to this thread to see if there was an update because I remembered reading it when it was first posted and wanted to see if there was anything new on the story lol......

So now that this thread has drifted off to another topic, I'm going to throw my two cents in... I don't have any kids and I'm constantly being told "you'll feel differently when you're a mother". Well, I hop enot. I don't think it's ok to whip out your bare boob while I'm trying to eat my dinner. Put a cover on that thing, geez! Do you want me to whip my boob out while you're eating? Probably not. It's just courtesy. I never expect someone to go hide in a corner, but it just be courteous and put a small blanket or something to cover up. I know a lot of people who felt the same way before they had a baby, but now that they've had one, their ideas have changed and now it's fine to pop a boob at any time. Maybe motherhood does change your ideas on things, but have some respect for those of us who have no interest in kids. I don't want kids and while I'm sure it's a magical time for your and your baby, it's a time I'm not interested in. If i don't want to do it myself, I sure as heck don't need to watch a complete stranger do it while I'm trying to enjoy a nice evening. I'm considerate enough to leave my boobs in my bra while I'm out, I watch my language around your kids, go somewhere I'm not going to be seen if I want to have a smoke (I never smoke in front of kids!).... All I ask is the same courtesy.

I as well was hoping to find out what happened in the OP, but since the topic has drifted to breast feeding I would like to add my own thoughts.
My husband and I left Babies R Us, and parked right next to us was a vehicle with a woman sitting in the front breast feeding her baby. My husband wasn't very happy and said " Can't she at least cover up." I almost hit him. We had our newborn daughter with us and I was surprised at his comment considering I breast feed. Everyone is entitled to their own opinion. As a new mom, from experience no matter how much you prepare, something usually goes wrong. And about being "Proper" in public would you prefer a screaming kid ruining your night out, or allow the mother who has the same right as you to be there to go ahead and feed her hungry kid. Now i'm sorry that the baby isn't born knowing how to use utensils at the table, but why should a baby have to eat in the bathroom, or in the corner out of sight. I do feel that the incident in question which started this whole debate could have been handled differently. I feel she could have at least let them know she was going to have to breast feed the baby so if anyone was uncomfortable they could have made arrangements. But I feel that asking a woman trying to feed her baby to go sit in the corner away from everyone, or expecting her to is just another form of segregation. I thought we did away with that a long time ago.

Too Funny!!! I've had the best laugh!! thanks girls!!

From the story about the boob plopped on a table at a wedding, you wouldn't urinate in public (must remember that one) and the stroller marfia!!

I think it all comes down to good manners and respect for others. Lol you normally wouldn't pull a boob out in public...What's the big deal with putting a cloth over your shoulder when feeding in public. I breastfed both of my children, but I sure don't want to see boobs when I'm out shopping. icon_smile.gif
