10 Reasons to Breastfeed in Public

10 Reasons to Breastfeed in Public

Breastfeeding in public is, sadly, still a controversial topic. Way too often I come across comments, blogs, and tweets that seem to think that nursing a baby is akin to urinating on a public park bench. Huh? In 2021?

If you’re wondering IF you should breastfeed in public or just stay home to avoid potential awkwardness, here are 10 reasons to feed your baby in front of others:

10. You make it easier for other moms to nurse in public when you do.

9. By nursing your babies in front of kids, it’ll normalize the already NORMAL biological function of breasts.

8. It’ll help de-objectify the female form by giving breasts a function other than ogling.

7. Being a mother to a young child doesn’t have to be isolating. By nursing in public, you can stay social & active.

6. No standing up in public restrooms feeding baby. Need I say more?

5. It’s your legal right.

4. Your baby won’t learn that feeding only comes after excessive crying.

3. Your chances of breastfeeding for a longer period of time go up if it’s part of your normal routine rather than an inconvenience.

2. You can enjoy feeding your baby rather than feel as if your little one pulls you away from the action.

1. Breastfeeding is normal!


This is exactly what I was looking for. It’s light weight, basic, and made of a rain coat type material. I plan to use this in the pool this summer for my 10 month old when juggling my other two.

This is our favorite carrier we’ve used. It’s so much lighter than any other carrier we’ve used and baby girl loves it!

Perfect baby carrier for us. It's lightweight but still supportive. It has a nice, good look to it. It's also practically made and the zipper/pocket storage is great. Also, I can take this anywhere with us because it's compact.

I bought this because I needed a carrier to take my son with me on hikes, it works really well for us. I use it for everything from taking him on errands to doing chores around the house.
