Hi! I myself is breastfeeding exclusively for almost 10 months now. If breastfeeding in public includes breastfeeding in the church during a mass or while waiting my turn in a line,or while riding a public utility vehicle, I don't do that. The only public place I breastfeed is in a resto, while dining out with my family. I see to it that I'm not too exposed so I drape a cloth over my breast while my baby still gets comfortable. Breastfeeding in public is a no to me when the mom and child gets too exposed to the public since these days, only few are breastfeeding the general public might not appreciate this wonder or others might give you a "Ano ba yan" look. It would be a lot better if breastfeeding in public will not catch too much attention.

Me naman mommy I breastfeed in public di pwedeng hindi eh..kaya I see to it I always have our "portable kitchen" with me, when the family goes out. I bought a breastfeeding boncho.. it's very cool and ok gamitin. I cannot tell my baby to wait kapag hungry na siya db?,

The bonchos are a better substitute to a cloth draped on your shouldres mommy check them out  here:

frankly?  i'm not comfortable seeing corporate-looking moms breastfeed in public.  just imagining lang, kasi i've never seen one before... ;D  those moms who are wearing chic clothes, high heels, etc...  ok lang if there's a cloth draped on their shoulders.

but i'm a pro-breastfeeding

i submitted this POV to them already.. but i wanna share it, just in case they won't choose it. ;)

Are you comfortable seeing moms breastfeed in public? Yes or No, and why?
I am and was not blessed with breast milk. Even if, I am still an advocate of breastfeeding. I admire moms who courageously express milk when their little ones need it. And even though their kids are not around, they still bother to sneak out important meetings just so they can bunch up the milk they can bring home to their kids. Itís one of the most important gifts you can offer your child. So, yes, I am comfortable with it, just as long, as moms make best use of the utilities given for them. There are lots: breastfeeding stations just so can opt to do it in private, breast shields just so you and your baby are not too out in the open, and learning the correct ways and positions just so youíll not divulge a scene which others might find vulgar nor offensive.

Mothers, more often than not, need support from everyone. Understanding her will make her a better mom. Seeing through her mind will definitely make her a passionate mom. So if this can be one way to show that support, then I will, always, give her the benefit that she needs to do it. And besides, from a momís point of view, the least of my concern now is what others may think of me. What will matter most to me now is if I am able to nurse my child when s/he needs it the most.

for me,okay lang magbreasfeed in public as long as totally covered.as in pati si baby covered.kasi hindi maiiwasan na maglikot si baby while feeding her kaya kelangan natatakpan sha para no nip slip..hehe.. ;D
pero problem ko ngayon yan,i'm in dubai right now and problem ko kung pano magbf in public.kasi 1 1/2 years na ko dito wala pa ko nakikita nagbbf in public.i asked my huband kung pwede,sabi niya wag daw kasi marami daw maniac dito na makakakuha attention nila pagnag-bf ako.sabi ko kahit nakatakip?or super tago talaga?wag na daw kasi iba daw imagination ng mga yun.hay naku nakakainis... >:(
balak ko magbaon na lang mga frozen breastmilk pag namamasyal kami para diako mapilitan iformula si baby..malilimit tuloy pasyal... :(
pero okay lang as long as napaadede si baby.with my first baby kasi di ko nagawa yun kasi wala pa ko milk nun then nagformula na na sha agad.di ko lam normal lang pla na hindi agad lumabas ang gatas after giving birth,kaya ngayon desidido talaga ako na ibreastfed ang 2nd baby ko hangat may milk ako.tutal sa bahay lang naman kami. :D
im so excited na lumabas na si baby...excited to breastfeed her... ;D

ako ok lang to breastfeed in public,everyone has a right to be fed, kahit breastfed siya, why will people make an issue out of it eh hindi nga naman siya obscene. it's the most natural thing in the world.

plus may bibs, coverups, and aprons available for breastfeeding. :)

medyo hesitant ako mag-breastfeed in public just like mommy mixx teen mom rin ako. ang plan ko talaga paglalabas kami ni baby eh bibigyan ko na lang siya ng expressed breastmilk. bumili rin ako ng breastfeeding bib cover in case na kailangan ko talaga mag-breastfeed in public yun gagamitin ko para makapag-breastfeed ako discreetly,ayoko naman kasi na expose ang breasts ko in public just like other mommies na nakikita kong nagbrebreastfeed in public.

here's my nursing bib cover:



first time ko pala magbreastfeed in public last tuesday sa clinic ng pedia ni baby wala kasi kaming baon na expressed breastmilk kaya dinala ko na lang breastfeeding bib cover ko. ok naman experience na yun,di na kakahiya kasi may cover ako. yung mga tao sa clinic nakatingin sa akin,naninibago ata kasi may isang mom din dun na napabreastfeed pero walang cover. btw,province kasi dito di pa uso na may nursing bib cover pag napa-breastfeed,talagang expose kung expose ang breast while nursing.

I BF in public but i do consider other people so i try to be discreet like using a blanket to cover and i wear BF-friendly clothes. Most of the time, whenever we go out, we usually find out first if there's a nursing station/room so we know how long we can stay. I did try BF in the parking lot, restroom, and during a pre-baptism seminar. Sometimes you just have to swing it... For your baby.
