Could you stare a little harder?

Yes, that was my baby who just cried.
Yes, he's hungry.
Yes, I'm going to BREASTFEED him.
Yes, I know we're in a public place.
Yes, I know my rights, so don't you dare tell me to stop.
Yes, I can tell you're uncomfortable.
Do I care that this bothers you? No.
Am I at all embarrassed to feed him with you staring at me? No.
Will your staring make me stop sooner? No.
Grow up, get educated, find some manners, & get over it. I have remained covered the enitre time. I am NOT trying to show you my breasts. I am FEEDING my BABY, & you're NOT going to stop me.

Great post!! Along with blogging I work for my state's breastfeeding coalition and we are constantly dealing with this issue.

Found you from Hop a Little Tuesday

Kuddos to you for not letting it get to you! I could never nurse in public b/c my little guy would thrash around like a mad man. So frustrating.

Thanks for visiting my site - returning the follow! (sorry it took a couple of days!)

And if you get a moment, can you help a blogger out & vote for me as Blog of the Month here? Tx!
For the Love of Blogs

Your blog made me smile! My husband and I adopted, so I do not have the staring because of breastfeeding, but they do stare because we are a transracial family. Stopping by from FTLOB. My website is: http://christinaburchette.blogspot.com/

AGREEEEED! Ugh, some people are so rude! I thought I would be over the staring once my son was weaned at 17 months, but now I get dirty looks all of the time due to his Autism. It drives me up the wall!!! People are so tasteless!
