Don't know if any body has heard about this. It's on the mumnest home page.
Infuriates me that some sado took the time to take a picture and upload it on facebook calling hg his poor lady a tramp for doing something so natural. The person who did this to the lady should be named and shamed pathetic human.

I'm really nervous about breast feeding in public because of Stupid people like this, each to their own whether a women chooses to BF or FF

Don't be nervous about bf-ing in public. I've done it loads & have only ever had positive comments. The overwhelming majority of people won't blink an eye.

My experience is same as willsing. You'd have to be pretty unlucky to get an arsehole and if you do just say, well fuck you arsehole.

I've sat on benches breastfeeding, looking frazzled and unkempt, like many other women.
I have either attracted no attention, or the odd smiley glance.

Where has the photographer been to have missed that it's 2014 and women can and do breastfeed wherever the need presents itself.

Don't worry op.

For any one person judging, they'll be a mumsnetter round the corner ready to glare them down......

You can buy a hat for the baby that looks like a boob. Defo gonna get one for dc2. So funny! I saw it on reddit.

If anyone calls me names for bf in public i really don't give a shit and neither should that poor woman. In fact a group of school boys made fun of me as they got off the bus. Meh. I was surprised they even noticed.

Ithoughttofitfirst I've seen those hats LMAO what a brill idea! I may have to copy off you.

Your right shouldn't let people like that make me nervous of BF

I've breastfed in public and have never had any negative comments or looks. The only comments I've had have been positive ones.

Most people pay no attention at all.

I am going to feed my baby in the next convenient place when he/she decides they are hungry... not in the toilet and not a 20 minute walk away!!
