    In SOME public places in a discrete manner. ITs so simply to cover I think and true the child has to eat, but there is no need to be in the middle of a crowd just pulling it out openly.

    yes...gotta feed the child but don't just whip it out indiscriminately.......where the feeding bras and wear clothes that would give some cover to the teat

    I agree with everyone. The child have to eat so yes to breast feeding in public but in a discreet way. using covers or particular bras.
    I seen a lady on the subway as well pull out she breast and have it exposed in the middle of morning rush hour.

    I breastfed my daughter for a full year and I am all for breastfeeding where and whenever my child was hungry....yet, for her sake more than mine, I did my best to find the most discrete locations b/c that's our private time.

    By the time she was four months and someone (say family in the house) was staring at her or talking about her while she was feeding, she would hold her head around and stare at them as if to say with that stare...."I eating here, you cyan see!!" A MESS....she get dah from me.

    It's a cultural ting.

    In MANY cultures it's perfectly normal and expected for a woman to just "whip it out" at any time it needs to be done, even in public.

    However, in a culture such as America, where women's breasts have been sexualized and are seen basically only as sexual objects, you can see why it would bother and/or give discomfort to so many people.
