It took me maybe a few months after Ian was born to realize I didn't need to cover up when feeding my child, not at home when I have guests, not outdoors, not at restaurants, not because someone is looking at me with disapproval, not if my son doesn't want to be covered. Yes many many many people have seen my entire chest out and yes I wish they hadn't but it's not because I sit in front of everyone to breastfeed. No, it's because those same people who say I should cover up are the ones who either turn their heads or tilt their bodies a little to stare. I mean if you don't want to look at something you simply turn and look elsewhere. I apologize if it makes you uncomfortable I truly do but this is what motherhood looks like. This is what part of my everyday looks like. I breastfeed and that journey is soon coming to an end and I'm not going to try to hide. There are so many things mothers/parents are criticized for and it's ridiculous. I have a toddler either stuck to my hip or on my boob all day and that's my bliss. You can't ever please everyone and you will upset people but that is okay and I think that's something everyone needs to remember.
