I don't think it's appropriate to breastfeed a fourteen year old child who weighs 100 pounds.


That kid is more mature than Robyn Arryn.

You know you're going to a very busy,very public place so fill up a couple of bottles, problem solved. There are viable options unless of course you just want to flaunt and shove in people's faces YOUR opinion of what should be allowed in public.
Yes there are options. One option is to nurse as mothers have until the 1950s. I think it is great women have all these options as feeding baby is a different experience for every woman. Personally I could not switch between bottle and breast with mine. Many babies are nipple sensitive. Breast feeding in public is not an opinion it is actually law.

Double standard???
Dress code.......nursing.
I really dont think they are the same.
What would Disney and boob ladies think if a man pulled down one shoulder of his tank top exposing the breast less his nipple or if another guest got a glimpse of a nip?

You know men also get aroused by nipple stimulation.
A erogenous zone is not a sex organ. It is not necessary in reproduction.

Of course. We also had binkies for the little ones until mom could find a decent spot to feed them.

Well bless your heart. Yeah, my eyes were a bit scarred after that monty encounter, too. But I've seen worse on both counts. And I probably will again.

I'm guessing that the women at your work pumped because they were AT WORK and not with their babies, not so that they could lug around bottles to feed their baby just in case some shrinking violet was upset at the idea of a woman using a breast for actually feeding a baby.

Breastfeeding mothers are legally allowed to nurse their babies wherever they want. People who are bothered by it are the ones who should take advantage of the option to step out of the line they've been waiting in and go someplace else where they won't be bothered, not the nursing mom.

The very argument of supporting public breastfeeding is specifically about the natural non sexual functionality of the breast. The same can be said of peeing in public.
The breast is not a sex organ, the penis is.
Breast milk is not unsanitary, urine is.
Nursing does not involve squirting milk. Milk is not squirted onto the ground or splashed on surrounding objects.

Why was it not common place for men to whip out the ol' Johnson and pee in public for all of history before about 1950 when nursing in public was common place and hardly noted at all?

One of my co workers pumped at work (she did not breast feed at all, just felt breast milk was better). She pumped driving down the road and one time she went thru the drive thru while pumping and didnt realize one boob was showing out from under her shirt as she was getting her order.

So dang! Exposure happens even when pumping.

When men are forced to keep their chests and nipples covered up then I'll worry about women exposing themselves while breastfeeding. Women should have every right to go topless as men do, whether breastfeeding or not.

If you don't like seeing it, look away. Same as I do when I see some man with huge, hairy man boobs going topless.
