Breastfeeding in Public

This is a hot topic with much debate on both ends for and against.

Personally, I can never understand WHY other people feel so entitled to have ANY SAY in what a mother (or father) does or doesn’t do with THEIR CHILD.

Unless, I’m clearly hurting my child in any way that is against the law, please leave me be.

I breastfeed (bf) my Duke. He’s 18 months now. I feed him every and anywhere he NEEDS to be fed, just like any caring mother would.

What I can’t seem to grasp my finger on, is why STRANGERS feel they have some authority to tell me I should use a cover because THEY ARE OFFENDED OR DON’T WANT TO SEE “THAT”.

I have a solution to your problems STRANGER.  You have a few options.  Pick which ever suits your needs.

1. Take this blanket/cover and cover YOURSELF up while you eat, and you won’t have to see a thing.

2. DON’T LOOK!

3. Mind YOUR BUSINESS.

4. If you cover YOUR KID’S HEAD WHILE EATING….I’LL COVER MINE.

5. PAY MY BILLS before you feel you have the right to make request from me TO MAKE YOU FEEL BETTER.

I think I’m going to make a card to pass out the next time someone stares or comments…
