I think it should be a womans choice wether she breast feeds in public.
Personally my boobs are going that southern i wouldnt be confident enough to lob one out in the middle of the city centre, and i think some discretion should be advised. However we have a lovely park with a lake near us and in the summer its full of mums with their families and they breastfeed. I cant believe in this day and age there is still a stigmatism attached to boobs.
I have seen people walking around in the city centre that leave very little to the imagination but people respect their wishes to dress that way.
We quite happily tuck into a sandwich when we are hungry regardless of the surroundings, so why shouldnt we feed our children when they are?
also, if a quick half hour feed will stop a baby screaming on a bus for the entire journey, i am sure the general public would say amen to that.
It also makes me laugh when people say its disgusting to watch, but then they go on to stare away all the way through it!
Having a large bust anyway, i am used to people talking to my boobs, so at least if i am breastfeeding i can pretend they are looking at the baby!
