I know it's too early to worry about this, but I am almost at my wits end with my family! I mentioned that I planned to breastfeed to my mother, who is quite possibly the least maternal person on the planet, and she told me it was "sickening" and to "go buy a bottle". My MIL mentioned getting me some covers to drape over the baby for church and other places when I was feeding, and my cousin starts talking about how weird it is because people "know what you're doing under there". I said if my baby is hungry, it's going to be fed, breastfeeding is completely natural. She replied that I should go to the bathroom or out to the car when I needed to feed the baby. This upsets me SO much! Why should I have to feel ashamed for wanting to feed my (future) child!
