It doesn't bother me at all. I was never able to get my daughter to latch on but twice, I always felt badly that I was not able to give this to my daughter. When I was trying, she cried and screamed, it was horrible. I found out that even though my daughters chart said I was going to breast feed and to NOT give her a bottle, one of the nurses did anyway. I have always wondered if this might have causes nipple confusion.
I saw a woman at Target breastfeeding while she was shopping. I have always wondered how they do that. I have always had a bad back so I never walked around holding my daughter.
I know this is a hot button issue so I looked around to see if anyone had a problem with her and I don't know that anyone even noticed. The woman was trying to be discreet, she had her shirt over her breast.
I feel lucky, in spite of the fact that I was not able to breast feed my daughter, she has been very healthy, she clearly got her immune system from her Father. She was in Kindergarten before she ever had to take any kind of perscriptions at all and it was an antibiotic that time. I remember the doctor asked me what kind of antibiotic worked best for her, I told him she had never had any before (he was shocked) and asked him to NOT give her Penicillin because of my own allergy to that medication, no need to take chances.
