Ha! I could have written this, except my DS is 8.
We were scrolling through movies on Netflix for family movie night, and he saw the photo for Goldfinger...with the naked lady painted gold lying there. He said, "Oh no way, we can't watch that one! It has a naked lady!" I said "No, we can't let ANYone in this house see boobs!" as I looked down pointedly at my little 8wk old nursling happily slurping away. DS looked, and giggled "MOM! Well - I guess it's not that bad, huh."
All my kids think bottle feeding is weird...in fact, 3yo DD1 sits next to me with the mini-Boppy pillow, pulls up her shirt, and "nurses" her Cabbage Patch doll while I nurse her baby sister. It's adorable!
I've never liked modestly covering up or hiding for other people's sake...I figure BFing is the biological function of breasts, and people need to see it as normal; if baby is hungry, baby is gonna get fed! The only time I will cover is if someone is creeping me out, just because I don't like being stared at by pervs...for the same reason why I wouldn't wear a short skirt and bend over in front of people.
Oh - and to the religious objectors, I say: What did God make these for, anyway? It sure wasn't to sell fast cars and cheap beer, or keep the Kardashians well-paid.
