Why is it necessary?

Why is it necessary to be little a woman who chooses to breastfeed if you dont like it dont look. If you want to ban breastfeeding in public than they need to ban eating in public by anyone. im so sick of being judged for choosing to feed my child.

    My only response to this is a story....

    We were at the mall one day eating lunch. There was a girl there breastfeeding her baby. A guy glanced over, then looked away. There was nothing said. No dirty look. Nothing. She lost her mind about it and went off on the guy.

    You can't expect people not to notice. No, they shouldn't stare. But until it's "the norm" again, people will notice it as something different. That may not be the way it SHOULD be, but for now that's the way it is.

    The woman at the mall completely over reacted. And in my opinion, she was waiting for someone to take notice so that she could give them a what-for.

    I'm sorry if someone made you feel bad about breastfeeding in public.

      Its such a natural thing that people have turned into a dirty thing. I agree with you even though I bottle fed. I don't think you should be judged for doing what comes natural to you and is essential to your baby.
