Do want.

Seriously, that's amazing.

Great thread!

I never cover myself while BFing, and I don't see why I would *need* to expose both breasts since I only have one nursling.

Frankly, I am offended by people showing BUTT cleavage, but I see it all the time in public. Do I see the point in pursuing a law about it? No. Then again, people don't feed babies with their butt cracks.

I completely dislike the word discreet, in conjunction with breastfeeding. Why in the world would one want to be secretive about feeding a child? Modest, perhaps, about one's body. But secretive? No.

It seems to me that discretion regarding breasts is primarily an issue when they are at "work"; when they are being decorative, there don't seem to be as many objections .

"It should be a rule in all prophylactic work that no harm should ever be unnecessarily inflicted on a healthy person (Sir Graham Wilson, The Hazards of Immunization, 1967)."
