A post on a different website got me thinking. People are always worried about rude comments if they nurse in public, but I've had the opposite experience. I've gotten some stares (which is silly--- if you don't want to see it then just don't look), but never rude comments. I've actually received many compliments from people.
1) With my son, around Christmas at he Mall, a woman came up to me while I was nursing my son and said "It's really nice to see you doing what is best for your baby! I wish more moms felt confident like that!"
2) I didn't have a cover while we were out at Whole Foods in Downtown Milwaukee and DD was obviously hungry. I looked at DH and said "This is a pretty progressive place, right? I'm just going to feed her." He frowned because while he is very comfortable with the breastfeeding he is a little protective of my... ladyhood. I pulled out my boob and was feeding the baby while shopping when a woman came up and said "Good for you!" It totally made my day!
