last night i watched a documentary about breastfeeding. the tv crew followed moms who were breastfeeding children of different ages right up until one of them was 8.
anyway, some of the moms featured formed a group to help promote breastfeeding and sat in a shopping centre breastfeeding their children (perfectly normal in my eyes) and p[assers by were asked about their feelings of breastfeeding in public ....... i was shocked to find that a lot of people found it disgusting and innapropriate to do .... and was even more shocked when a man said i think its wrong for a woman to ''whip out her boobs'' in public, not that any of the women featured had exposed their boobs to anyone AND MORE TO THE POINT IM SURE HE WOULDNT MIND IF IT WAS SOME STRIPPER DANCING INFRONT OF HIM FLAUNTING HERSELF!!
so yeah, after all of that just thought id like to hear your views on the situation! and i wont be put off breastfeeding my child because of other people thinking its wrong!! :D
