Before you read what I have written, read this awful blog post that I have linked. I don't get why women have to be so hateful. It was written by a woman who has a problem with moms breastfeeding in public.
In the South it's a Religion
Here is my comment back to her...
"I read this post while breastfeeding my baby before work. I am one of these "self righteous hippies" you described above. Oh wait. I am a registered republican married to a man who hunts and fishes. So, first, I wanted to bust open your stereotypical view of breastfeeding.
Secondly, I want you to know that a year ago, I was just like you. I went to, yep, Target with my mom. I was a few months pregnant, so I was in the baby aisle. We saw a woman walking around nursing her child. I looked at her and did a double-take. How could this woman just walk up and down the aisle nursing her child without a cover?! I was like, I will never do that! Then, I actually had a baby. And I understood. Once you have a baby, your life is not your own. As much as you want to put your baby on a schedule where they only eat at the most opportune times, it's just not possible. In fact, the first few months of a child's life, doctors tell you to let them feed on demand. They need to eat whenever they are hungry to gain the appropriate amount of weight. So guess what, I had my first public breastfeeding inside the Collierville Barnes and Noble. No one said a thing, and I really don't think anyone noticed. It wasn't a big deal at all. If you are blessed to have a child, you will get this one day. Until then, you probably won't.
Thirdly, I read through your bio and saw where you were raised Catholic. Do you know that the Pope encouraged mothers to breastfeed their babies in church? HE even knows that you don't interfere with breastfeeding.
As far as going into a bathroom, have you ever had dinner in a bathroom? Would you do it? Would you put someone you love through having dinner in a bathroom? I know all your germ information you said was probably true, but that doesn't make it any less gross to attempt to feed your child while someone could come in and take a crap. How awful.
Lastly, why not be nice? We women have enough battles to face. The last one we need is one against each other. I pray you find love and empathy in your heart. And I pray when you have a child, you don't encounter someone as mean spirited as you have just been."
