I’ve been breastfeeding my daughter for 9 months now and I breastfed my son for 12. I’ve had plenty of opportunities to nurse in public and I’ve done it everywhere from restaurants to museums to a meeting with the governor of my state. I’ve never received any negative comments about my public nursing. Possibly because I live in an area where people are accepting of public baby feeding of all sorts. Or maybe because I have a bitch-face and no one wants to mess with me. Either way, I’ve been left to feed my babies in peace.
Despite this, whenever I set up to nurse in public I gather my thoughts to prepare a response in the even that someone says something to me. If over confronted, I would probably be polite and tell the person that public breastfeeding is allowed in my area then look at my phone or something so I could stop talking to them. But I would really want to say something all smart-assed and snarky. Something that would really illuminate how silly objections to a mom feeding her baby really are. I’d never do it but I’d want to.
