Let me start by saying the entire debate about whether or not women should breastfeed in public is silly to me. Like seriously, what’s the fuss about?
The reason why we don’t poop, pee, or screw in public is that it’s unhygienic. The social norms follow the gross. Breastfeeding doesn’t spill any bodily fluids unless your boobs are really, really full, and even then, you’re gonna get like one drip on your underboob. In many cases it’s the cleanest way to feed an infant, seeing as they’re generally not the most conscientious about keeping their bottle/cracker/other food source in their mouths as opposed to their hair, the floor, etc.
Breastfeeding is natural, beautiful, and much healthier for the baby than any other option — yes, including pumping and giving it to the baby later. It should be done whenever and wherever your infant is hungry, period.
This is my honest opinion and I am entitled to it, same wat you are entitled to yours.
That said, what do y’all think about breastfeeding in public?
