When Breastfeeding Publicly

Welcome, to the Breastfeeding Public! ;-)

The world we live in today is in dire need, of those mothers who are willing to breastfeed in the open. We need to start getting the word out there, that breastfeeding is, in actual fact, the normal, natural way to feed a baby! 

On this page, we have sourced together all the useful and interesting information from our website, about breastfeeding in public. Enjoy! 

Featured public breastfeeding comment

‘About six years ago I was in a Walmart, where a young woman and her mother were shopping. 

As I went down an aisle, I discovered them. The younger woman was nursing her baby.

As I walked by she turned away and said: “I'm sorry sir."

I just couldn't help it. I stopped and asked "sorry for what?"

She said, “for exposing myself like this."

I thought for a few seconds, and said, "I see no unusual exposure or disturbing display from you."

“You are doing something quite natural, and I find it very beautiful. So stop apologizing. I apologize to you, for our stupid society that seeks bars and topless dancing, but finds breastfeeding to be distasteful."

I got a thank you from both mother and daughter.

The baby didn't say anything. She was busy.

I didn't tell her that I was extremely jealous of the baby.’
