I have heard many people say that breastfeeding moms should think about the people around them who may be uncomfortable with seeing breastfeeding and that it's just common decency to hide their breastfeeding in case it would upset someone. I have listed 8 reasons why your discomfort with breastfeeding is not our problem.
1.) I can't control how the people around me will act therefore I don't feel like I should be controlled either. If I were to ask a stranger to cover herself because her chewing with her mouth open grosses me out that would not go over too well. I don't try to dictate how other people should eat, therefore no one gets to dictate how my baby eats.
2.) I'm a mother and the needs of my baby is all I concern myself with. I'm not consuming my mind with how I can make the way I breastfeed more enjoyable to the public as I'm not putting on a show. What is going through my head is ,"I hope I don't leak through , I hope I will produce enough milk , & I want baby to be as comfortable as possible because I hope he will fall asleep before I get to the next store." So you see there is no room for me to concern myself with your comfort.
3.) The law states a mother may breastfeed her baby wherever she is authorized to be. Your disapproval is not law therefore it's not my problem.
