Okay - so how do we all feel about a woman's torso cake coming out (usually they look like they're lactating too!) and being plonked on the table for the birthday boy? LOL, are we meant to look, or turn away?

Haha...sorry, just finding it absurd that some people can't handle innocent little bubbas being given nutrition in the same location that other people are eating in.

Exhibitionist cousin floppin' it out for all to see? She's a spectacle for sure, and I suspect nobody thinks of her behaviour in a favourable light...but its not the baby's fault it needs to be fed. Its just a wacky woman...plenty of them around.

Life's too short to make cake pops.

So regaurding the BF, as I woman I am not comfortable watching people present themselves in public to feed the baby. Yes babies need to eat, but it is not always going to be convenient to the parent to be involved in the activities going on if they have to take care of the little one. I had to pump do to medical issues and sometimes I yes had to leave the room and go somewhere else and do it. Should I have just whipped my pump out with double suction pumping action and gone to it in the middle of the room or near the closest possible outlet.

Life isn't convenient and there are ways to make it work without exposing yourself in public. so with a young preteen son, am i supposed to get him to stop staring as the woman pulls out the first breast he has ever seen right in front of him? Yeah right, he will look away(and then get a neck injury from constantly cranking his head back to see), I DON"T think so.

We have laws about public indecency, but if a baby is attached it is no longer indecent? A boob somehow isn't a boob if a baby is involved. That's silly. Feed somewhere else or bring a blanket. Your not entitled to break a law because you have an infant that is hungry. I couldn't drive on the side of the road when I was caught in traffic and it was getting past feeding time and my infant was hungry.

Then again if some laws can be broken because it's not fair, then lets talk illegal caking. Let the debate renew againicon_smile.gif

Cranky about this because it keeps happening in public lately with my son getting more exposure than if I bought him a frickin playboy mag. Yes I know it s natural act- so is boys staring at it!!!

I have a preteen son too, but I can't say we've ever been confronted with unusually high numbers of nursing mothers exposing themselves. Mind you, I think if my son were to see a woman breast-feeding, then I would use that experience as a learning opportunity for him. We have this year had ongoing discussions regarding the whole puberty/s.e.x education thing, and I would actually welcome the opportunity to teach my son that human female breasts are actually there to produce milk to nourish human babies. This would remove some of the mystique associated with women's bodies that invariably leads young men in our societies educating themselves about the female species from playboy (and worse!) - which IMO only objectifies women, and teaches them (amongst other idiotic things) that boobs are there simply to pleasure men.

This has nothing, mind you, to do with the whackjob cousin who is clearly an overt exhibitionist. I am simply talking about perhaps seeing a bit of inadvertent boobage when a woman is latching on an infant or removing an infant from the breast.

OK...hopping off the soapbox now icon_smile.gif I only popped back into here to check if the OP had posted an update!

In Montana and many other states, you have the legal right to breastfeed anywhere that you have the legal right to be.

I'm sure glad you aren't the one making the laws...yikes.

I too am wondering what happened with the cookie-dousing mom, but I have my own nursing story to add--too bad it has nothing to do with cookies!

When my daughter was about two or three months old, I was at a church function and she got hungry. I forgot my nursing blanket (dang sleep deprivation!) so had to get creative with my shirt. After getting myself ready, DD latched on and was a happy camper. My shirt was lowered so far that the Nursing Boob of Doom was covered and all you could see was the back of DD's head. A male friend of mine came up and asked if he could hold my daughter. I said it wasn't a good time. He said, "Why? Is she sleeping?"

All I had to do was raise my shirt a half inch. He never asked me again.

You were discreet- sometimes its not a little breast shown but ALOT for way too long.

At my son's baseball game a few weeks ago, a mom is sitting on the bleachers with all the families and kids(ages 12-13 and under) shirt around neck, nursing bra open on both sides(one side was apparently airing out), breastfeeding. Too hot to use a blanket or cover up(her words and right apparently). Many unhappy questions and a ton of look at the nekkid lady comments from other small children at the game.

Kids on the field were distracted- staring at the natural act in public at any place the breastfeeding mother has a right to breastfeed. One kid on 3rd base almost took a line drive to the head cranking his neck, DESPITE the coaches request that the kids focus on the game not the nekkid lady. I am sure the son of said mother was very proud of her public right to feed his younger sibling AT HIS BASEBALL GAME.

What's next- circle time at the local grade school, during show and share, class parties, bus stop, lunch in the cafeteria with the kids? There should be a level of decency and to me it is simple, breast feed in public if you want "need" to, but use one of many lovely cover ups that are available. Your civil liberties aren't intruded upon(you get to nourish your child when and where you want) with out infringing on any one else's sense of decency.

I always covered up with my daughter, my son hates to be covered and I am as discrete as possible, but I find it silly that anyone would find it indecent.

THAT IS WHAT BOOBS ARE FOR!

(not just looking good in a sweater, shockingly enough).

I would LOVE to hear back from the OP! About cookies!

lol Can you believe I was thinking the same thing? Wouldn't men just love if we "took care of their needs" in public? Oh man, that's too funny!

Anywhooo....I can't believe you all are still talking about exposing boobies while nursing. icon_lol.gif
