On facebook, I shared an awesome picture of a woman dressed up as Wonder Woman nursing her baby with no cover. There honestly was not much to see as far as her breasts go.
My husband's cousin saw it, and is now starting a huge debate with me over covering up in public while breastfeeding. I don't think I should have to, while she says every mother should. Her reasons are that there are men who are uncomfortable and stare at the women.
Anyway, do you agree that women do not need to cover up while nursing in public? Why or why not? What would you say to someone that have these excuses for covering up?
1. "There are men who are very uncomfortable or pervy, and they would look at your breasts with 'hungry eyes'."
2. "You need to be modest"
3. "Go in the bathroom/Mother's room to nurse your baby"
Any other negative comments that you have a great reply to? Obviously, I'm for not having to cover up, but I'm too chicken to not cover up. I'm working on being braver though lol.
ETA: Another one of DH's cousins has started up bashing me for agreeing with NIP. These two girls are actually Mormon, and they both are very snooty about everything Mormon (from being modest to why Mormonism is the only way to go). I'm getting baptized in June as a Mormon, but I'm not going to cover up while nursing just to make someone else comfortable.
