A Do or a Don't: Breastfeeding in Public

A Do or a Don't: Breastfeeding in Public

It's recommended by the American Academy of Pediatrics that babies should be breastfed for the first year of their life. While most women don't end up completing the entire year, a lot of them at least give it the old college try.

Some new moms say breastfeeding is more painful and tedious than giving birth while others feel it gives them the best opportunity to bond with their baby. Since not all public places, restaurants, stores, planes, etc. have private lactation rooms, women who are breastfeeding are stuck with no choice but to feed their hungry baby whatever and whenever is convenient. While some people don't mind seeing a woman breastfeed, others have a strong negative reaction to it, so what I want to know is, do you think it's a do or a don't to breastfeed in public?
