    What are your thoughts? How long should it go on and should it be done in public? Go!

    I think it's a double-edged sword. On one hand it's a natural thing that should be acceptable. On the other, there are so many tools and utilities that modernize the "process" where it doesn't need to be done in public since you can pump at home and bring bottles to outings.

    Something that also has to be considered is how there are an increasing number of fucked up people in this world who may cause harm to the mother and baby, whether it be because of religious beliefs, mental illness, or even uncontrolled perversion.

    I guess it also depends on the time and place. I don't think it would be appropriate on a city bench or even public park, due to the reasons stated above. However in a controlled setting when you have people you know and trust, it can be less of a liability.

    There's an interesting self-documentary by a woman, JBB actually linked it a while ago. Her son is like, 5 and she breastfeeds him. I think that's too old.

    my sister breast fed until around 2 years. Anyone offended by public breast feeding is a fucking idiot!

    Tell Mani that he's a grown man and to leave your breasts alone.
