    I'm breast feeding my boy and been so nervous about doing it in public. So I always try to feed boy just before going out so I knowi got a couple of hours to do what I need. Tonight I fed him then went to a whetherspoons with boy and hubby to meet his dad and step mum for a drink. After an hour boy starting crying and doing the tongue thing so i knew he was hungry. I felt really bad so bit the bullet, got overmy fears and managed to feed him in the pub!

    Really silly, but I feel so good and silly for being so worried about it in the first place.

    Sorry for the pointless thread. Just feeling proud of myself! :) xx

    Well done!! :D.

    This I think is one thing I dont get with breastfeeding. Its shown in a positive light as being best for baby but its still uncomfortable for women to do it in public. I know some promoting of breastfeeding in public has been done but I think a lot more needs to be done.

    Yey well done! The first time is the hardest! I was the same the first few weeks too. We need to get out there and put bf in a positive light so it gets easier and easier for women to bf in public :)

    Well done Becky.

    We've not been out yet, mostly cos been having feeding issues, but my dad has now seen far more of my chest than ever before, and I did it while my uncle was here.

    Will admit to hiding from FIL though, but this point I still pretty much have to undress lol. Xxx

    Really determined to bf wherever I am, as everyone says its best and most natural, but so scared someone will come up to me and ask me to stop. I won't, but won't want aggro at me when I have lil one . Do ppl get 'told off' by idiots much these days?
    I would want to then go up to them when they are eating and tell them to stop lol.

    I've not been asked to stop, some people look but I think it's more out of curiosity than disgust. I think I would be shocked if someone said for me to stop, I hate confrontation but I defo wouldn't stop!!!!
