Reading some conversations about breastfeeding, it seems like BF is not always very well accepted in the US (especially in public). Lots of mums have left comments that people have been rude to them while they were BF.
I live in the UK, and here I think it's different. In every cafe I go, I find a nursing mum! And it seems so natural. BF is more than encouraged (ie: they don't give any formula at the maternity, lots of leaflets about BF, posters in the surgery saying: "feel free to breastfeed your baby" etc..).
Also, I come from France, and over there, even if BF is encouraged when your are pregnant, you hardly get any professional support after giving birth. But, if you nurse in public, no one would ever say anything to you, and people would often positively be surprised!
What do you think? Have you got different experience from different places about breastfeeding? I think that would be nice to share it!
