This is from May 23rd. Maybe we should write Dear Abby!<br>
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~<br><br>
DEAR ABBY: A couple of weeks ago, some friends and I visited a family friend's niece who had recently had a baby girl. While we were visiting, we noticed that the baby was hungry.<br><br>
Being a good mom, the new mother unbuttoned her shirt, took off her bra, and breast-fed the baby right in front of us. Abby, was it right or wrong of her to expose her breasts in front of visitors when breast-feeding the child? -- RACHEL IN PHILADELPHIA<br><br>
DEAR RACHEL: Breast-feeding a baby is normal and natural. However, removing one's bra to do it should not have been necessary. There are special nursing bras that allow the mother to uncover one breast at a time for the baby to nurse.<br><br>
Chalk up what happened to the young mother's inexperience. And after all, it was done in the privacy of her home -- not in a public place.

Hey, more power to her...when I had my first baby, I was terrified that anyone would see even the slightest bit of skin, and went to great lengths to be in private when my son needed to nurse. I still remember how proud I was of myself the first time I felt comfortable nursing him without a blanket, when he was nearly 5 months old. I probably could've saved myself a lot of stress if I just, erm, let it all hang out.
