Default Breastfeeding In Church

Was at church this morning and walked over to the coffee pot and this chick is breastfeeding while socializing for all to see. I know what your thinking, not particularly hot. Can't they find a semi private spot somewhere?

Sorry but not acceptable in public places - they can find a place if they want - they want you to see. This is done for the hip modern mom not the baby... unless an emergency

This is what rest rooms with stalls are for.

This just shows a total lack of class and consideration for others. The "mother" (I use that term loosely) didn't want to be inconvenienced.

It doesn't bother me as long as she conceals it with a blanket or something. I can also understand why she wouldn't want to feed her baby where people take a crap.

If they expose in public, I check it out in public. Don't pop your tits out if you don't want stares.
That being said there are double standards playing out here. Even this site shuns the bare boob but allows the man boob to be displayed. I say free all boobs............................................. ...............

I was definitely tongue in cheek, I have no problem with breastfeeding ...anywhere, and on the few occasions I do come across it I avert my eyes. I am a gentleman. I find the angst over it funny at best.

If you don't like it don't look at it. This is nothing new, most mothers are self conscious and cover up, but it seems mothers from other countries are less embarrassed. It ain't hurting me or you one bit why try to change it.

I ran into the same situation in church last week. Bothered the daylights out of me, and the mom seemed irritated that I kept checking her out in the pew behind me. Honestly...some people...

Our church has a room in the back of the sanctuary with rocking chairs called the "cry room". It has a tinted glass picture window and a speaker for anyone inside to hear the pastor speak. It is for mothers to take their babies when they begin to cry or need feeding. Works out VERY well and is accepted by everyone...

This approach may be worth suggesting at your church...?

LMAO

It sure is acceptable, its not done to be hip or modern. Its been going on for centuries. Get a grip, a baby has to eat too

Who cares... Life is to short to worry about the where a child should be breast feed.

I'm worried about why I wasn't on our boat today with my family getting a line wet.
