If there is one thing that a milk-engorged boobie is not, it is saggy.

Don't care as long as they realize they might end up on xhamster and motherless to fulfill some niche fetish, no biatching allowed when it happens either.

It isn't disgusting (the wife did it with both our kids) but, like most of the human race, the vast majority aren't particularly exciting to see uncovered.

I'm kind of conflicted on this.

As a woman that hopes to have a child some day, it is nice to know that I should have certain rights to feed my child.  However, a sensible part of me knows that I can pack breast milk with me when I go out with my child and feed them that way.  I look at that as a courtesy to those that may be around me.  Do I think it is gross, not particularly.  It is just part of nature.  That said it would be nice if some of the "ladies" that want to breast feed in public were more discrete instead of trying to put it in your face just so you know what they are doing.  And they will be sure to announce if you have any reaction like turning away or simply walking by them without addressing them. But people like that are just assholes in general and are going to do whatever they think they can to cause trouble.

Yes, they do. They also have bras like that.

When my wife was breast feeding she had to keep them babies covered all the time. Otherwise it would look like a fountain was going off.

Of all the times I have spent in malls, I have never seen a woman breastfeed. Not to say it wasn't going on. But I never noticed. It is less invasive than say, smoking or urinating in public, which I think I would notice right away.

I do question the feed-in in the article. 10 mothers brought there kids outside a mall and all 10 were hungry at the same time. That seems odd. If a few of those mothers decided not to feed the kids until the protest, there are bigger parenting issues to address.

My all-time favorite comment regarding one of these nurse-ins is from a comment on a Starbucks blog years ago. The author of said comment was named "Famous Anus," so I'm not altogether entirely sure this is legit:

I'm totally against public breastfeeding and I'll tell you why. This one time I was in Burger King, and this girl with enormous boobs--they were like 56-FFF, I know my tits--yanks one out of her blouse, then mashes her kid against it. But the kid didn't want that much, and when he pulled away, her boob wouldn't shut off. It kept spraying like a fire hose, and I got milk splashed on my hamburger, and in my Coke, and all over my pants because the thing was squirting uncontrollably all over and my kids starting screaming and hugging my leg and then the manager ran up with a handful of napkins to try to stanch the flow but he slipped in a puddle of milk and cracked his head on the end of the table and I heard that dude's like in a coma or something now and my pants smelled bad the rest of the day 'cause that stuff stinks when it gets hot. So no, I don't particularly support public breastfeeding. Thanks for listening.

As a 30 year old, married man who is hoping to start having kids in the next 2-3 years here is my thoughts and perspective on things:

Ladies, you are welcome and free to breast feed as you see fit in public, that being said...

My take is that breast feeding is an intimate act between mother and baby...you are literally proving life to said child, it is a beautiful thing for YOU and your spouse.  That being said, I do not want to share in your moment, nor do I think that it is heroic or worthy of any kind of praise...I mean come on, you are simply feeding your child, this is not special or unique in the animal kingdom at large or even among humanity.

Within our hypersexualized society, there is something to be said about discreteness.  Nothing you do in public is private.  Trust me, you breast feeding in public is someones fetish.  Are you prepared to end up on some tube site?  While I recognize that this is an unlikely scenario, you need to accept that it is a possibility.

This topic comes up a lot in the news and I do have some additional thoughts on the matter.  It would be cool if malls at least voluntarily set up somewhat tucked away nursing areas, one on each side of the mall.  Perhaps with one way glass?  I don't know, I am just throwing stuff out there...

Society needs to calm the fark down about a seeing a boobie.  This nations prudishness and double standards are astounding.  You freak the fark out about seeing a nursing mother, yet you watch the borderline pedo spectacle known as Toddlers and Tiaras.  I don't get it.

Finally, my simple observation on the matter is that there is a portion of women out there that view motherhood as something that is praise worthy, and with that mind set comes entitlement and attention whoring.
 
2013-01-07 10:13:59 AM  

durbnpoisn: Yes, they do. They also have bras like that.


And they are the most ridiculous garments to untangle and fold from the laundry, aren't they? Discretion (while not something I demand from nursing women even in my heart of hearts) has never been easier with the garment options available these days, but they are complicated in construction.

littlett's: However, a sensible part of me knows that I can pack breast milk with me when I go out with my child and feed them that way.


When you're in the actual situation, and the option is pump, store, bottle, carry in a chill pack then find some place to heat it up wherever you are, whenever the baby is hungry OR just nurse with a sun hat or blanket or any of the myriad options for complete discretion at your disposal, I'd be surprised if you went with the former. Especially if the situation in question is air travel; just latch that baby on during taxi and let it fall asleep for the duration of the flight.

My wife has nursed a combined total of 4 years across our three kids and I don't think that she's ever had a breast exposed in public to anyone but the baby or maybe me sitting directly next to her. Even that was minimal.

In the Old Testamnet, Our G-D had something to say about whipping it out in front of the Noodle Express or Macy's.

Thou shalt not seethe a kid in its mother's milk  - Deuteronomy/14-21

So, HE didn't want to see this. HE wants you to do this at home in a private corner.
But, now that I think of it... Bath and Body Works might be ok.

In 63 years I've been to a lot of malls, restaurants, etc. And I've seen probably hundreds of women breast feeding their babies. Not once have I heard/seen any complaints or commotions. So where's the hate?

Pumping and storing is not really that big of a hassle. The nice thing about it is that either parent can feed the kid and the woman can pump on a schedule instead of whenever the baby felt like eating. We slowly over a week served the milk a little cooler every feeding until ours would just drink it cold. In the end, if the mother isn't working, it probably is still easier to breastfeed though.

I am a stay at home dad, and my wife breastfed the kids when she was around and when I had them I had to pack along lots of stuff in order to feed them breastmilk. Why would you want to bring along bottles, a bag of milk, a small cooler bag with an ice pack, some sort of bowl AND/OR a thermos of hot water to bring the milk back up to body temperature so the solid fats turn more back into liquid,

I was so jealous of the women who cold just whip out a boob for 5 minutes and be done with it.

We get it, you had a baby and now you want to rub our noses in your life-giving boobs. Allow us the common courtesy to make  motor noises as we move our noses back and forth amongst your swollen breasts. Also congrats on the kid - they will probably be into public sex porn as a result of your parenting public breastfulness.
 
2013-01-07 11:10:52 AM  
This sort of behavior disgusts me. So farking juvenile. Breast feeding is a natural thing, and we don't need a bunch of puerile men acting like, if you'll excuse the expression, boobs. Seriously, guys, what's the deal? It's a breast. It's just a soft mound of tissue, a gently curved globe hanging there like a ripe fruit. And yeah, it has a nipple. And so what if the nipple sometimes gets hard, just stands up there like a little eraser point when you lick just a tiny trace of moisture across its tip and then lightly exhale a gentle puff of wind over it. What do you want to do? Take that hard nipple and roll it lightly between your thumb and forefinger, cup the other breast in your hand? Squeeze it? Is that what you want? Do you want to press your face between those breasts and squeeze them over your ears like earmuffs, lay your head on them like pillows? Jesus, grow up.

Shoop008: Pumping and storing is not really that big of a hassle.


Production versus daycare demand is a big factor; if you're pumping an excess then the stuff becomes less precious. My wife was often struggling to keep up in the 6-9 month zone before the kids started eating much else, but then her sister could have nursed every kid in the family. You never know.

However, a beer per day, usually an unfiltered hefe, seemed to help my wife boost production. There are legitimate and placebo-effect reasons why.

I was invited to the one at the Galleria here in Roseville, CA.

I'm totally supportive of a woman's right to nurse. Even if it makes you uncomfortable because she's not "discreet", it's her goddamn right to do it. Personally, I find the pungent odor of formula or an open jar of baby food much more offensive than a brief glimpse of a boobie squashed into an infant's face, but in either case, it's a mother feeding a child. Whoopdee freakin' doo.

HOWEVER.

I chose not to participate in this case because when I read the article about the original "victim", the person that asked her to leave was one random asshat employee of Hollister. It wasn't mall security or the corporation itself. I don't think the story was worthy of national publicity. The corporation had no obligation to formally address the issue. You can't go running to the media and stage a national protest over every tiny incident of douchebaggery.

Well...I guess you can. But I won't participate.

You go, girls.

Maybe one day women will grow up and stop acting like raising a child is the most heroic and praise worthy thing out there


So this is an attention-whoring matter to you? Or does it upset you that women don't like to be treated like pariahs or nuisances for doing something as simple and natural as feeding their kids?

Crewmannumber6: This seems like a lot of manufactured outrage. The most prudish people I know recognise breast feeding as completely natural and normal and have no problem with it.


Younger, supposedly more open people are usually more squeamish about than older prudes. Younger people in general seem to have more hangups than older folks, even if they're more willing to flash a boob in a group shot. I don't know for sure why, but I'm going to wager it has to do with how many have grown up as latchkey kids over the past 30 years, who get too many of their "truths" about society and intimacy from TV, movies, and later video games and porn.

Or it might just be about having comfort zones and not wanting to step outside them for anyone. Older folks actually grew up with breast-feeding all around, so it's not really a leap, as long as nipple doesn't show.

littlett's: BarkingUnicorn: In NY, a woman can go topless anywhere a man can.

I think it is the same in Columbus Ohio as well.  I'm not really in that much of a hurry to do that to be honest.


Take your time. Some of the best things are worth waiting for.

Generally, I do not give a fark if women breastfeed in public, however others do.  Now here is the issue - some people have an issue with a partially exposed breast, and them asking a nursing mother do be a little discrete is should not be viewed as an act of oppression.  In this instance, some young 20-something asked this lady to leave a Holister,  I am sure he/she has ZERO idea of nursing mother protection laws.  Now what I have a problem with is said nursing mothers freaking the fark out about their rights be trampled on and acting like motherhood entitles you to be an ass and acting like motherhood is worthy of praise.  (I hope you understand I am speaking in more broad terms now).  I understand the laws, they make sense, feeding your child, bonding with your child should be a protected right.

I would say really, the only time I think I would have an issue with a women breastfeeding in public is in a place where a crying newborn does not really belong in the first place, such as a very fancy restaurant where I am trying to enjoy my food, wine, wife, and whatever other company I am in...

To answer your question more directly, yes...I do believe that there is some amount of attention whoring happening when it comes to some women nursing their child.  Having people stare at you while you breastfeed gives some women some kind of satisfaction or reassurance...same goes when young, good looking women get dressed up in skin tight dance club wear.

As for women being treated like pariahs, it is wrong and they should be protected.  That being said, I will say that I believe that a private business has a right to deny service to anyone, including those carrying a gun, those not properly dressed (think no shirt, no shoes, no service), and yes, even those breast feeding.  So if they do not want to have a breast feeding woman in their store, that's prerogative, and the community at large will respond...

You pickin' up what I am throwin' down?

It's OK to show violence and death as entertainment, but nudity and sex are considered perverted.

I just couldn't help seeing an ad for Momma's Used Cars at the top of the article. I guess like momma's food, her cars come with a lot of gas.

So your inability to mind your own business means that it's her fault. I've heard dumber rationales, but not by much.

It's a shame the women aren't showing their boobies in my EIP...

I never said that.  Maybe I did not make myself clear, I do not give a shiat if a woman is breastfeeding.  Does not bother me, unless it is in a situation where a baby should not be in the first place.  Not because of the need to feed, but because I do not want to hear a crying baby while trying to enjoy a $200 meal with my wife.  The breastfeeding is irrelevant.

As for other people, well, people get all up in each others business all the time.  Think of the busybodies that are on HOA boards...
