I feel very strongly on breast feeding my future children. I think it is perfectly natural to breast feed no matter were you are. if your baby is hungry you have to feed them no matter if your in the comfort of your own home or in the middle of a crowded mall. My husband thinks it rude to breast feed in public but this is also coming from a man whose entire family didnt breast feed not one of their kids. I told him that I was perfectly comfortable with breastfeeding in public for example if we went out for dinner. if the baby got hungry in the middle of dinner, i would discretely cover up with a blanket and feed and if someone didnt like it so be it, im not gonna starve my child because some stranger doesnt like it. and he said i had not common courtesy for other peoples feelings. the thinks I should pump bottles so no ones dinner will be disturbed. I dont really like the idea but its an option. he also doesnt like the idea thatI feel comfortable breastfeeding IN MY OWN HOUSE in front of HIS family, because I will make them feel uncomfortable. I told him that our children depend on me for food and if his family had a problem they are old enough to have the option to go home, its my house, it would be different if i was at their house then i would excuse myself to another room but in my house ill breastfeed where ever i please! he also thinks this is wrong. he also threw in that his family has always feed other peoples children because they were bottle fed, and if i breast feed no one will be able to feed our baby but me, so when his family would come visit could I pump bottles for them to feed the baby, i think its stupid to pump enough bottle so everyone can have a turn feeding, im not a cow!!! I dont mind doing it for my husband so he can bond with our baby, but like i said im not a cow Im not gonna pump because the family wants to feed teh baby. is there anything I can do or say to change his mind??? anyone else experience this???
