    Some people are so rude :x

    I was out today with Lola in Asda's cafe and she wanted feeding so got my boob out and started feeding her (you couldn't really see anything)

    There was a couple sat on the table next to us. When the woman realised what I was doing she gave me a dirty look like I was doing something wrong :shock: .
    She started whispering to her husband then he turned around looked at me and said to his wife "That's disgusting she shouldn't do that there, she should go and do it in a toilet" :shock:

    It made me so mad :x so I started shouting at him and told him I wasn't going to go and feed my daughter in a toilet how would he like it if he had to eat in a toilet if he didn't like it he could move.

    Everyone was looking at me :oops: but I didn't care

    They got up and left though without finishing their drinks.

    I've been breastfeeding for nearly 2 years (apart from a 3.5 month break before DS was born), I've never ever had a comment and I've fed in restaurants, cafes, public transport, walking around tescos and boots, in parks basically anywhere mine have needed feeding. Thankfully attitudes like that are rare.

    I think you did really well to stand up to him :clap: I'm glad you gave him what for and in a way I'm almost disappointed noone has said anything to me as I'd LOVE to give them a bollocking :rotfl:

    Good on you :cheer:

    I think its most Mum's biggest fear about BF in public, luckily I've never encountered such behaviour. I hope they were ashamed of themselves - its so annoying because you can't see anything anyway.

    Don't mess with women and their hormones :)
