Rule #337: Breastfeeding in public

If you're breastfeeding, good for you. This is the best way to nourish a newborn. Unless of course, you've been addicted to smack all your life.  
However, I don't want to be invited to the show. If you know you will be in a position where you will have to breast feed, maybe don't go out to a restaurant for dinner. If you have to go somewhere for an appointment and it's unavoidable, well, you gotta do what you gotta do.


But when I see someone proudly doing it at the food court in the mall, well, I just don't think it's necessary. That would be the same as taking a laxative and hitting a hot tub.


And then there's the people that let it go on way too long.

In the new world, breastfeeding will be restricted to the private homestead only, unless absolutely necessary.
Breastfeeding in public causes traffic jams!


  1. Excuse you! "Don't go out for dinner", "Restricted to the homestead"?!?!?!? ARE YOU KIDDING? Welcome to 2013, women have lives, women have rights, women have challenges and responsibilities. A household is no longer sufficient with one (man) income. If you are at work and your wife needs to get groceries, pay bills, take the car in, buy your children's clothes, is she going to wait and YOU do it after work? Things need to get done and infants need to eat. If it can be done discreetly, it should. If not, GET OVER IT.

    1. Your assuming I'm a man? Just kidding. I'm a man. Arguably, a super man. Not THE "SUPERMAN". Just a super man. First off, no one has to "buy clothes, or pay bills" in a pinch. And if your taking the car "in", breastfeeding and driving is probably against the law. Secondly, I don't think we're actually that far apart on our view. You said "If it can't be done discreetly, get over it". I said "If it's unavoidable, you gotta do what you gotta do". Similar view? I think the "homestead" comment maybe was the feather ruffler. Perhaps we'll look at changing the wording prior to implementation.

  2. I don't think that nursing in public (especially when out for dinner) is even necessary. Babies don't need to nurse for at least 2 or 3 hours so be organized and feed your baby before you go out and when you get back home.... seems simple enough to me? I don't think that is fair to make others around you uncomfortable and it's not just men that feel uneasy with it either.
