    Amalthea, to clarify, it’s not that i think breastfeeding in public is generally offensive… if you are discreet about it, and cover up, then i’m all for it (and have done it). What I am talking about being offensive…is when I can see a woman’s entire breast in the food court at the mall… which, by the way is not only offensive…but…[Read more]

    I’m not a stay at home mom… and I was referring more to the first few weeks after birth… obviously at some point the baby is safe to leave the home 🙂 Mine didnt for a while, because I had a c-section and couldnt drive…but my doc told me not to take her out for 3 weeks anyway…so i wouldnt have. Also, many of the malls here have seating…[Read more]

    and obviously we disagree… and that’s ok. I thought this forum said simply ‘breastfeeding’ which I do support…. I just happen to think that when done in public, it should be done discreetly

    For the record, i’m not disagreeing with discreet public breast feeding… and i’m about as liberal as they come on most topics… i’m just saying, would it kill someone to grab a blanket or head to the restroom, car, someplace private if they’re not prepared? Even in Kentukcy most people have enough class to do it privately… Unfortunately, I…[Read more]

    Bri, yes i think its appropriate for a brand new mother (and more importantly a brand new baby) to stay home…. 24/7… unless they’re at the doctor. There are a lot of nasty germs out there for brand new babies….

    Iva-God says no breastfeeding mother would think that breastfeeding is offensive? I disagree…I was (and plan to be this time) a breast feeding mother, but there’s a time and place….and it’s not the corner booth at dennys. I will pump for public use, and breastfeed often in the privacy of my home. I don’t want to see it when I’m out in…[Read more]
