Modesty, blah, blah, blah

I don't come in here often, but I'm so sick of my (mostly) religious friends blathering on about modesty. I've nursed seven children and I've never used a cover. I also doubt anyone has ever seen my boob. But these whiners are making me want to post a pic on FB of me nursing nude! It would serve them right!

I always tell them that just because they have bought into society's sexualization of women does not mean women should have to cover up. In order to normalize BFing, one has to make it normal, i.e. do it whenever, however, and wherever.

How about people just get over themselves?

Yep! Funny I actually said the same thing this morning myself although a different situation. I was changing my clothes and the kids came running in the room - to which ds says to my naked chest "oh my gosh mom! You gotta put a shirt on." Well... son I'm in my room getting dressed so maybe you shouldn't barge in. Instead I asked him why? They're just breasts. Baby bottles. That's how each of you ate as babies. Would a baby bottle gross you out? "No" Okay then a breast shouldn't gross you out. Same thing. "Ugh okay mom" (He's 7 )

You ladies are right! Never really understand the whole cover-up thing.

My dd is 24 and tandem nurses wherever and whenever. My sons are 22yo, 17yo, then 8, 6, 4, and 2. I'm raising them to be completely comfortable with nursing however their future SO's want to nurse. I've taught them the law, and taught them that they are expected to speak up in defense of nursing mothers being hassled regardless of whether or not they know them. I've also made it clear that if they interfere with their SO's instincts on nursing (i.e. suggesting covers, scheduled feedings, CIO) that it will be me and them (as in, they're gonna get it from mom!). I won't tolerate any intererence from men when it comes to breastfeeding. IMO, men don't have a say in how I (or those close to me) breastfeed my child.
