A simple concealing with a receiving blanket in public is just fine !! Completely natural thing to do anywhere....now if a woman was to just pull her breast out for everyone to goon at then that is a little different, and a little uncalled for, but I wouldn't be the one staring either!!!.... I breastfed all three of my children and I breastfed in public all the time. Never once did I have to reveal my breast to the public. Sometimes you just have woman that want everyone to see their breast though, and some just don't care one way or the other.... I didn't want to show mine but I don't care when I see a women breastfeeding, it does not bother me one bit !!! It is one of the best things you can do for your baby. Truly natural and acceptable in my eyes....if people don't like the idea or seeing it... Stop Looking !!! Better yet... STOP STARING!!! You wouldn't believe how many people stare, then they have the nerve to complain about it!? Geez oh Pete !!! Honestly, I find people that don't accept it to be a little on the immature side.....

Thank-you, Fatima! Breasts belong with babies and vice-versa. The female body is constantly being exposed and exploited all over the place!. How asinine to act as if Nature's plan for breasts is immodest

If t's possible yes, emergency cases are understood, but most women don't do it for emergency reasons they just do it. If it's possible it' more decent in private.

They should, but they do not always have the possibility as there are some 'emergency' cases.
