Baring it all

Boobs.

Breasts.

Fun bags if you prefer that term as well.

Whatever your name preference they’re still the same at the end of the day, a part of the body with a purpose.

What purpose you deem them for is really up to you.

But please get off this high horse about women feeding their children in public being such a bad thing.

It’s going to happen whether you like it or not.

Yes I’m a breastfeeding mother and I’m a bit over people carrying on about it all.

Regular readers of my blog might remember this is not the first time I’ve written (or ranted) about breastfeeding.

It’s a topic that always evokes quite a bit of response and usually not for the best or right reasons.

Come on people it’s not offensive.

Not even a little bit.

If you don’t like it, don’t look.

They’re not in your face.

In fact they’re right in the face of the little person who needs them the most.

For goodness sake, don’t stare at a breastfeeding mother in a judgmental way (or one bottle feeding either!).

If you can really help it, don’t stare at all.

And let me give you a hint, we don’t necessarily like showing our breasts for all to see.

It’s not a porn movie!

But when a baby is hungry they deserve to be fed, unless you’d rather listen to them scream.

And I’m sure there’s enough dirty looks given for that “problem” too!

Let’s be honest here, when a baby is feeding you don’t see that much anyway.

And no a baby doesn’t need to be hidden under a cover either.

Think about it would you eat your food under a blanket, especially on a hot day?

Mothers are usually dealing with enough of their own worries, especially first time Mums, so before you open your mouth, think twice.

After all she could be sleep deprived and you never know what might hit you!
