I'm really sorry that happened. People can be really cruel and its unfortunate that it's so taboo to do something that is completely natural! I think it's funny that as a society we find it ok to give our young milk from another species but it's "disgusting" to give them the milk that they were designed to have.... really makes one think doesn't it???? Just know you are not alone, I'm still nursing my almost 3 year old. I know it can feel strange when most others have chosen a different road, but what you are doing is amazing. ❤️

My 3 year old never asks to nurse in public any more but if she did, I'd do it. Anyone who cares enough to say anything is frankly far weirder than me. All this sexualising of breasts stuff is bizarre - their primary function is to feed babies, otherwise they'd be made of something other than mammary tissue. Stupid.

It's so normalised over there. No one bats an eyelid.

My friend is from Ghana and she said she received the worst attitudes over there from the village people telling her to wean when bub was 2 so she could have time to herself!

I'm sorry, that's really sad you had to go through that. That very reason is why I always felt weird feeding my 2 year old in public. I wish I hadn't felt that way but I did.

Good for you for making it this far though

I'm sorry you had to experience that. I'm feeding my 18 month old still and when out and about am almost sure I get the odd weird look now and she is still only a wee dot !!! I want her to self wean and am in this foe the long haul no matter when that is . I hate the fact I'm starting to second guess myself re feeding her in public , I know the issue is wit those who choose to stare ... Look away !!! But the older she gets the more I feel maybe I should go to the changing rooms . I hate that we are made feel this . It's crazy !!!!
