Should more restaurants/cafes have breastfeeding areas?

I would think I would want it to say yes, but at the same time I feel like I feed my baby no matter where I'm in, so if it has an specific area or not I will still feed her so I dont this would make a difference for me

I’m a momma of 3. We travel a ton, always out and about, and I chose to breastfeed my youngest for what felt like ever! (20 months at bedtime, 13 months during the day) If you choose to go out, then breastfeed. If you choose to sit in your car for your own reasons? Do that too. But asking places to offer a spot for the small population of moms that feel they need a private place provided to feed their child, I wouldnt agree with that or think that it’s necessary. It wouldn’t change my choice to visit a place or not. But that’s my perspective! Everyone is different, and I dont know when breastfeeding became a “reason” for all things needing changed, but after pumping/formula bottle feeding the first two kids, I know the breastfeeding definitely made life easier, not harder. Which is why I ended up having to nurse the third. So if I felt entitled to a separate space, that really just defeats the purpose of breastfeeding for the ease.

I feed my daughter where ever and when ever. If someone says something I snap back. Dont let people make you feel ashamed to feed your baby in public. Your baby cant walk into a restaurant and order food and eat it themselves. Babies place their order when they are hungry.

Like, a little comfy room you can go to, or a section of the restaurant for people to sit and eat that are going to be breastfeeding? Because yes to the first one for those moms that feel more comfortable doing it in private, and no to the second thing because there’s no need to separate moms just because they need to feed their baby. I worked in a store that had really nice dressing rooms and super comfy seating and I had a mom ask me if she could breastfeed in there. She of course didn’t have to ask, it definitely wasn’t a problem, I think she just felt more comfortable breastfeeding in private. I personally didn’t breastfeed, but when my sister and I were pregnant, we got a nasty look from an older lady because we were discussing breastfeeding. She was sitting alone and reading and we must have disgusted her so much to the point she got up and left. I feel bad for moms that this has happened to because they were actually breastfeeding. If I had breastfed, I would have felt more comfortable in private.

Personally I just feed wherever, I just tend not to sit in the window or near lots of people traffic. I’ve personally never had any stares or nasty comments. However, a lady on a train once came over and said she wanted to high five me for doing such a great job. More people should be like her!
