Insane Attending Stories: Breast Exposure



(Of course, this happened before I had a nursing child myself. That kind of eliminates your modesty. Eventually you think nothing of peeing with the bathroom door open.)

  1. It's easier to keep track of a toddler/crawler/little one with the door open, I'd suppose. Either that unless you brought them in the bathroom with you.

    Generally the nursing Moms I know at least try to keep the breast not being used covered.

  2. LOL so true. When I was pregnant I swore I would never feed my child in public. But after I gave birth with like 2 people in the OR (including the fiance of a good friend of mine who happened to be on his OB-GYN rotation), I lost all modesty and didn't hesitate to whip the boob out at subway stops, in restaurants and park benches.

  3. Sorry, I meant 20 people. Not two.

  4. Not only is it easier to keep track, but potty training works a lot better if they get shown what to do.

    The whole breast thing in public never bothered me. It actually annoys me when people get so offended by it. Stop being so puritanical, and overly-sexualizing the breast.

  5. Funny cartoon!! No, offense moms, but nursing exposed everywhere creeps me out.

  6. It isn't sexual, I'm a hetro female and I don't want to see your breasts. Then again I don't care to see some strange man's nutsack either, do you?
    Wish a lot more people would get their modesty back, I don't care how many kids you had or how many people were in the delivery room. I and a lot of people wish you'd be more discrete. Nothing against breastfeeding in public just remember not everyone wants to see it.
    But I do strongly object to the people that change their babies diapers in restaurants and no I don't mean in the bathroom.

  7. I think breastfeeding women should make an attempt to cover up. You don't have to use a nursing cover (even though I do), but at least nurse in a way so that there is minimal breast exposure.

    Jolyne: Our society needs to change entirely for bare breasts to be something we can all just brush off. And to be honest, I wouldn't really want to be in a restaurant or doctor's office and see a topless man either.
