Breastfeeding In Public

I'm all for breastfeeding in public.... but.... really??? All I could do was laugh when I saw this and take it with a grain of salt, afterall it is from the "People of Walmart" collection. Apparently the grocery shopping was waaay too important to finish rather than taking a moment to go feed her kid.

But in all seriousness, my only comments on the issue are this-

I am all for breastfeeding in public... discreetly. Ya know, non X-rated like. Just flopping your boob out for your kid to snack on with complete disregard for anyone around you goes on my "faux paux" list for the same reasons you don't adjust a wedgie, scratch your crotch, or pick your nose in plain view for all to see. That's just my sense of modesty and manners. Trust me folks no one on the planet wants to see your nipple post pregnancy no matter how much they commend you for the awesome job you're doing feeding your child... it's not college spring break here. They make the nursing covers and tops for a reason.

That being said I love women that have the confidence to breastfeed in public. I would've done it in a minute had I been able to successfully continue breastfeeding. I mean after how many centuries it shouldn't be that shocking to the general public. But even when done discreetly you can't miss the eyes from around the room. That is sad and unfortunate.
