Breastfeeding a 2 year old


Charlie Is 2 I was out in a cafe and he wanted to feed I did it discreet but a lady came up to me and said it was disgusting I hate confrontation so I left is feeding a baby not the normal I know he is quite big so might look older also some family members have told me to stop
It's not like I'm not used to it I have lots of children all breastfeed this incident just got to me rude woman now I'm thinking I should go to the baby change to feed idk just wanted to vent thanks for reading x

Sorry you encountered that. Some people can be so ignorant. My 5 year old still nurses but she never nurses in public anymore as she's worried what people would say or think. It's sad that society is this way towards something so biologically normal and natural

Thats so out of order, to actually come up and say its disgusting. She could have looked the other way if it offended her, which is crazy. I don't think you should have to go elsewhere. i don't like confrontation either.

I don't get why some people feel so offended at someone feeding their child. I'm all about fed is best so I don't get why a kid drinking out of a bottle doesn't get remarks, but the natural way is somehow indecent? It's not like most women take their entire top and bra off in public.

I hate confrontation, but I would have said something back to that woman along the lines of her being the one that's disgusting.

Feel better. I've never liked confrontation and have never had to nurse in public so I can't imagine what some people go through. I think what you are doing is great and do what feels right to you. Don't change the way you want to do things because a rude woman had something to say about it.
