    --------------i have nothing against breastfeeding it is a bond to the mother and the baby so I think every mother should give it a try

    I used to be homeless and I lived in a shelter. Whenever I ate, I breastfed my baby. One evening I was eating dinner and one the staff members told me my hip was showing (I was using a nursing cover). I said "ok, I'm feeding my baby. My breast are covered." She said" Well the men serving the food just got out of prison, and I am tempting them." I was looking around, like nobody seems bothered. Yep, I didn't stay there long . This was a christian shelter and I am an atheist, you can see how I felt there. Luckily I am no longer homeless. I wish the best of luck to mothers who are homeless.

    personally as a guy I fully support breastfeeding in every way but at the same time if i'm next to a women breast feeding I am just naturally awkward so I might leave but that doesn't mean I don't agree with it or that i'm being disrespectful

    But great video! love you guys!!!

    I think it should also be taken into consideration that people might leave to give you some privacy. It could be a way of people showing respect, not being uncomfortable 🤷‍♀️ just a thought

    Before I breastfed myself I was very naive. I thought everybody just breastfed unless they had medical reason to prevent them doing so. I didn't realise it was something people chose until I was pregnant I just assumed breastfeeding was what's done.

  • IStrangeStudios ent.

    I didn't get to experience breastfeeding in public. I had planned to but I had soo much trouble breastfeeding my son in general and I didn't make enough to feed him about maybe a week after we left the hospital I gave him formula. I supplemented with formula before then but after a week it was straight bottle all the time. Breastfeeding in the hospital though was kinda strange for me. lol. I didn't mind the nurses or anything but when my family came into the room I always hid behind the curtain while I sat in the recliner with him. I wouldn't have minded using a blanket or something to cover him and just do it that way but I didn't have anything like that and I don't think it occurred to me at the time to ask for one. I was so tired and in pain from having a C section it took me a while to get used to everything.

    A child doesn't have a functional imune system for about the first three months, in which they get their protection from their mother's milk. So it is actually better to breast feed, at least the first three months.

    Two memorable nursing occasions: 1) on the boardwalk when a 50-ish man noticed, nodded with a smile, and walked on; 2) knee-to-knee on the train with a 20-something guy who smiled and nodded and stayed put, relaxed. This was 17 years ago. Worst moment? None. No one cared. Not even the toll booth guy who realized I was pumping while driving. And i never used a blanket. Just couldn't figure that out. Unbutton a blouse from the bottom and the shirt IS the modesty blanket.

    CLC here, just remember you have the legal right to breastfeed in anyplace public or private in the USA with or without a cover! ❤️
    Yes, you can still drink caffeine and eat spicy food while nursing. Personally, I nursed my son 17 months until he self-weaned I was also 33 weeks pregnant! Going on 6 months with my daughter now! It’s not easy, but it’s worth it! 🤱🏼

    They're missing the irony that 'breastfeeding in public is taboo in our culture' and they didn't even pick a woman who were actually breastfeeding? Why not? They also did the cover-up thing that many women have a problem with.

    Chantal, not sure how many moms would stock their baby's head in their shirt. 😁
    Breastfed 3 kids over 8 years. I don't know how much they benefitted but I got saggy uneven breasts. Yes, beautiful for bonding but it was also limiting.
    Bottle fed our 4th (he refused the breast) and there was no difference health wise, developmentally, and our 4th is smarter than any of us. (He's 16 now).

    I’m long past my breastfeeding days. But with my daughter, it was very frowned upon in public (she’s now 26). When her brother came along 6 years later, the laws had been signed that I had the right to nurse him anywhere and everywhere. I no longer had to literally be banished to bathroom stalls. Yes, I literally nursed her while sitting on a toilet when she was 2 months old. It sucked.

  • hopemjacquet

    I fed any and everywhere. I stopped visiting family members homes that weren't supportive. Thankfully all my friends were super on board. However covering isn't really an option for all children. Mine hated it and would rip it off

    I can see that you ladies are doing a wonderful job covering up during breastfeeding, and that is the real issue about the whole breastfeeding thing. Some mothers think that it is perfectly okay to show their breast in public. There is a right way to do it and a wrong way to do it.
    I am a woman who breastfeed her two children. I never did it in public, but I can understand the necessity. The point is: I do not want to see anybody's junk.

    In Germany, lots of mothers don't cover themselves up while breastfeeding. I've seen boobs. I think looking away isn't a sign of disrespect or anything, it's more like "I'm not trying to see your boob". Leaving the (public) place because someone is breastfeeding seems too much though.

    15 months breastfeeding my daughter, 9 months in with my son. It's hard, its tiring, its amazing, and wonderful, and the whole thing for me has been worth it. Breastfeeding in public uncovered has never been an issue even at church when little ones have asked their parents it's always been well the baby was hungry so mommy is feeding him. It's been wonderfully positive.

    I whip out my boob everywhere to feed my baby. NORMALIZE BREASTFEEDING!
    I actually have a 4yr old son who I breastfeed on front of all the time. He will sit next to me and watch and tell me to take out my "boobies" when the baby cries. He even goes so far as to tell people I feed the baby with my "boobies". I think it's good for him cause he'll grow up to be an understanding man. As opposed other men.

    With my daughter I exclusively pumped for the first 4 months enough to last till 6 months when fortified with formula.
    With my son (2 in September) I have been breastfeeding (exclusively pumped for the first month now Just from breast.) We are doing baby led weaning.
    Honestly as a mom it’s hard. You get judged for everything and anything. As long as you’re not hurting anyone do what needs to be done. Covered, uncovered, bottle, formula whatever baby needs. Life’s too short to worry about a negative Nancy who can’t see that you’re just doing the best you can for your child.
    Also for any Mommas out there, do your best breast milk or formula you got this!

    with people leaving the area: it could be them trying to give the mother her space to feed, and trying to be respectful about it. on the flip-side, as the women earlier in the video mentioned, breastfeeding can be isolating.
    so on one side (usually those who dont breastfeed) are folks thinking they're doing what they can to help and be respectful, while the other doesn't want to disturb other folks to the point of making them move from where they were sitting.

    A couple of weeks ago was the first time I had experienced seeing breastfeeding in a more public setting. I was throwing my sister a bridal shower that day and one of the ladies had asked if she could bring her newborn (of course she can and did). When she got to the house she asked if anybody would mind her breast feeding the babe and nobody had any issue with it. I noticed that I would look over occasionally and avert my eyes because it's a situation that has been shunned for so long, and out of curiosity as I have not had a child and never experienced breast feeding, wanted to know what it would look like to others if I ever did breast feed. It was very natural and not sexual by any means. Just a woman feeding her baby.

    I live in South Carolina and breastfed for two years. I never once had anyone say anything negative to me (well other than my mother lol) about feeding in public. I fed in restaurants outside etc. I normally wore a cover, but when it was very hot I hated covering her so I didn't. Never a problem. I was expecting the worst but had nothing but support

  • Tiffany Bishop
    Tiffany Bishop 11 days ago

    Hi! In my experience when folks get up and walk away what they're doing is giving you some space. Real babies (when young) usually nurse to sleep so momma's do want quiet for them, when I've breastfed I always got the vibe that people wanted to be quite so not to disturb us. In some cases that meant walking away to be respectful.
    I've also had an a-hole loudly criticize me at a restaurant when I tried to feed my first, under a cover, in a corner, at 6 weeks. I swear I almost cried, I was already having such a hard time! But then his wife read him the riot act even louder (from her rant she had breastfed 6 of his babies lol) and he tucked tail and hide in his seat. That woman is the real MVP lol. I still try to channel her whenever I'm out with my kids.

    No, the problem with breast feeding is that it’s not there to seduce the male. It’s not there for his pleasure. That’s why so many men have problems with it.
