well that goes both ways, hun. not everyone is comfortable with bf. i agree that you need to bf your baby when hungry but maybe be more discrete about it or go somewhere more private.my dh was at work and a lady with a baby in a sling came up to the counter and he went to serve her she just took her boob out and was trying to latch baby on WHILE MY DH WAS SERVING HER! he felt so uncomfortable. it great that your pround of bf but i do think it should be done in a discrete way that doesn't make other feel uncomfortable.
I don't think you have to think about others at all. If you are comfortable then that's all that matters. People wear clothes that are way too revealing and I'd love to go up to them and say something about it making me uncomfortable that I can see everything under the ridiculously short dress but I can't. Same goes for BF. it you are uncomfortable just look away.
yep i agree you can look away but some women are to carefree about it and make other unconfortable (like the example i gave). when you live in a community around other people sometimes we have to take other people into considerstion when doing things like breastfeeding in there face.
The day i broke up with normal was the first day of my magical life...
The customer should have minded her own business, however going forward it would be nice to think something good came out of the situation, rather than just venting about it. You were able to handle yourself, but another mum may not, so to try and prevent would be more pro-active.
