Public Breastfeeding is shameful

Random Fact #6 - Public Breastfeeding is Shameful

I try. I do. I really really try. I haven't given up. Bitta is almost 9 months old and I still try to nurse her when I am out and about. But she never does. And if for some miraculous reason, she does latch, she nurses for 1 minute or less. Just long enough to get my let down going. So there I am with a baby who won't nurse and a leaking breast. Brilliant. Bitta seems to think breastfeeding is best done behind closed doors, lights off and on a comfortable bed. As a Mama proud to be breastfeeding, this no nursing in public thing is a pain! I'm happy to breastfeed my baby in public, but why won't she let me!!!
