Should more restaurants/cafes have breastfeeding areas?

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!

If I can nurse standing in line at a Walmart in front of a bunch of Mennonites and not be judged you can nurse at the table. People need to get over themselves.i use the two shirt method and no one sees a thing.

I was that mom. I didn’t want to, but my kids are just more important.

For some mamas it’s a big anxiety trigger, so I want them to be comfortable, but if people *seeing* breastfeeding are bothered, I agree, pff, baby eating is more important.
