Hi all I am new to this community. I am currently pregnant with my second child. I plan on breastfeeding him. I breast fed the first but not as long as I should have (exigent circumstances). I remember with my first being out in public and having to feed her and covering her up with a blanket, and how she would get hot or I would worry that she was uncomfortable, or suffocating. I have been thinking about it and I don't think I want to go through tha't with this one. While I will be discreet when "situating: us once he's latched on, I think I am going to let him be. However, I live in Alabama, prig central. There is an Al law that was passed in 2006 protecting a moms right to breast feed in public or private or any place that she is lawfully authorized to be. I am just nervous about the whole thing I guess. Have any of you ever had negative experiences while Breast feeding in public and if so how did you handle it? I haven't brought it up to my husband yet. He is fairly conservative, and I am not sure how to get him to see my point. I mean unless your the one breastfeeding and you know what its like to stifle yourself and your infant with a blanket in the Alabama sun and humidity, you may wonder exactly what the big deal is. Stories? Suggestions?
