When I had my son in the late 70s,.. my mother in law and the rest of the in laws would not come to visit us because I was breastfeeding. Apparently on their first visit when I came home from hospital, I breastfed in the lounge,..when I should have gone to my bedroom !!!
I breastfed very very discreetly,. I was quite shy about my body back then and would have never exposed a breast to anyone, so I was disgusted with their attitude. I made it clear to my husband that if they visited I would not be going to hide in another room
People who think breatsfeeding is to always be done in 'private' need to get over themselves. They don't have to look or stare at someone breastfeeding any more than they should stare at someone just sat nearby drinking coffee !
