Oh, I entirely concur! I too feel a responsibility to 'show off' and breastfeed in public. And I absolutely agree about the need for breastfeeding models. My mom, bless her, nursed both me and my sister in spite of the fact that her mother told her (repeatedly) "that's not what breasts are for!"

I'm so fortunate that my own mother was able to withstand her family's criticism and breastfeed her children. She is one of my biggest "models" and has been so supportive of my breastfeeding experience.

I love the statement "As a breastfeeding Mom, and one who works, I feel a responsibility to show off my breastfeeding. I nurse in public – at the mall, in Church, at work, on the street."

Yes, yes, YES.

I feel the same way, too. I traveled quite a bit with my son when he was a baby. Before he was even a year old he had dipped his toe in the Atlantic AND the Pacific. I've nursed him on various beaches, airplanes, airports and busy tourist spots such as Faneuil Hall in Boston and Ashbury Haight in San Francisco - although, my personal favorite was George Washington's front lawn.

I also felt a "duty" to show the general public that a breastfeeding mother can travel easily with her child without everything turning into a big deal such as the media likes to show.
