If deficating is as natural as eating, taken to the logical end, we could just ban all eating in public.

But I think that misses the point.

I don't see how you can compare sitting beside a woman who is breast feeding with sitting beside someone taking a big dump.

You can't push aside the health issue, because that IS the issue, and it's smelly.

It's funny because, I find seeing someone stuff their face with a Whopper and fries nauseating and disgusting.

If you don't like seeing it, there is a rather simple solution: don't look.

I've yet to come across a woman who forcibly shoved her bare breasts and baby in my face, making me look.

Postponing a fussy child a feeding, or forcing a mother to leave the premises is just selfish. These people have to eat also.

Seriously, its not like most breastfeeding moms are getting some kind of thrill, flashing their boobs to make people uncomfortable. I've yet to see a nursing mother just plop her boob out and nurse...most are discreet enough to lift their shirt just enough to be comfortable and also cover themselves with a small blanket.

If you think its uncomfortable to watch, turn away. I nursed both of my kids and it wasn't something I really enjoyed doing in public but unless nursing mothers want to stay home and hide for the first year of their baby's life, it has to be done.

And breast feeding is NOTHING like defecating...I would hardly compare expelling feces from one's body to providing a baby with breast milk. One is filthy waste meant to be disposed of, the other is sterile and full of vital nutrients, meant to be ingested.

My wife breastfed both my children. My daughter weaned herself at about a year and a half, and my son at two years old. They are very healthy children and they are off the charts with their heights. If you can do it mommies....go for it.

And Dads, get your rear ends out of bed and get the child at night and bring the child to your wife when it is time to feed. Just because she has the equiptement it does not mean you get to sleep through the night you lazy bum. It is a great way to be a part of the whole thing.

And if you have a hangup about it in public don't look. I am one of two men in a building with 30 women all day. No one is forcing you to look anywhere you do not want to look.

Normal

Why do I need a reason not to like breast feeding? Anyway, perhaps this bothers me so much because I lived in the town where a mother was arrested for breast feeding her 8 year old....
All in all, I just don't like breast feeding and we can leave it at that.
