Absolutely not. Like a bottle feeder wouldn't ask if they could feed their baby.
Actually, a while ago we went to a party at a friend's house. I know her fairly welll and like her a lot, and it took my by surprise when we arrived and in front of everyone she said "If you want to nurse, you can use the bedroom."
I honestly thought she meant "If you are uncomfortable nursing in front of these people, you are welcome to use the bedroom." So my response was "Oh, no, don't worry, I don't mind, I just nurse wherever I happen to be at the time."
She looked somewhat taken aback, at which point I realised that her meaning was "Please don't nurse here, so when you need to, please go into the bedroom." I had to laugh to myself, as I'd given, unwittingly, the perfect response, and there was nothing more that could be said.
Strangely, other people there whipped out their bottles of formula, and nobody gave them a second glance or suggested that they went into the bedroom to do it. I"m sure I was the topic of conversation after I'd left. :LOL :LOL :LOL
