Is it appropriate to breastfeed in public?

This has been an ongoing controversy for as long as I can remember. I think that the extent of the argument plays a role in what it means to "breastfeed in public." I have seen moms in various places such as restaurants or malls simply whip it out for all to see with no thought whatsoever. Then I have seen other moms struggle to use a blanket to at least cover up and show some decency, keeping in mind this doesn't always work. Then there are the moms who try so very hard to put their babies underneath their shirts to hide everything possible - and trust me, this just doesn't work either.



I must say that for the moms who are not willing to hide their food source body parts, this is most definitely inappropriate not only to yourself, your baby, and possible siblings, but also to people who are around, especially those who also have children present. There are a lot of moms that would beg to differ on this opinion since they believe "all natural" is the way to go, and it's how children learn the meaning of life. Okay, I believe that this is a little to far, but if you are one of those moms, then I can't stop you and you are entitled to your opinion on the matter.

I don't have a problem with breastfeeding in public as long as some sort of secure nursing cover is present. This is what I used while nursing my babies and the nice thing about those nursing covers is that they are so discreet and it almost looks like you don't have a baby under there, but are just covering yourself up with a blanket because you are cold. I had someone comment on that.

What do you think?  Is it appropriate to breastfeed in public whether you are just whipping it out for all to see or using a blanket or nursing cover? Please share your thoughts and opinions, we would love to hear from you.

  43. I do agree with all of the ideas you have introduced in your post.
    They are very convincing and can definitely work.
    Nonetheless, the posts are too short for starters.
    May just you please extend them a bit from subsequent time?
    Thank you for the post.

  45. , the largest chegalle you will face is the time that a nursing program demands regardless of the degree program you choose. Nursing programs are very consuming of all your time which definately takes its toll on a family. On the first day of my nursing classes, the instructor asked for a hand count of who was married and flatly told the students that over half would divorce within a year of completion the program and that 90% of us would gain 20lbs during the program and made us order scrubs 1 size larger than normal. We thought she was nuts but this scholar of 20 years knew what we didn't. The program is grueling. You don't even have time for your own health much less your family and I did gain 20lbs and the majority of those married did seperate or divorce.But . nursing is one of the most rewarding careers you can imagine. It's hard .. a lot of days you feel like a drug pusher or a waitress but those moments when a patient grabs your hand and looks at you with sincerity and tells you how much they appreciate you well, that makes all those bed pans you emptied, vomit you cleaned off the floor and out of your hair, and all the days you said you'd never come back to work WORTH it. It is amazing to feel like you made a difference.Best wishes on your career choice.

  46. At age 20 are you registered nuesrs??!! If you have an LPN you'll probably find work but not as readily as having an RN. (Friends who are nuesrs, seem to have no trouble finding employment, even in this troubled economy. Atlanta boasts many medical facilities including some world class hospitals.)If you've been to Atlanta and like it, I'd say give it a whirl. I do think however, you should have a fair amount of savings to tide you over till you find work.(If you're working on your degrees right now, I'd suggest you finish school first.) Once you're ready, if the five of you live together in a three bedroom apartment, it should be relatively affordable.A move is a big step but once you decide to do it, you can always move elsewhere if it doesn't work out.
