Todays topic is from the Lovin Life After 50 publication this month. I found the question asked of Ask The Old Bag by Gayle Lagman-Cheswick.
Dear Old Bag:
I want to get my two cents in to the woman who wrote that her husband was embarrassed when a mother nursed her infant in public: I think something is messed up in his upbringing if he cannot overcome something as natural as a mother nursing her infant in public. Don’t you agree? Signed Not Embarrassed
Dear Not Embarrassed:
We are all brought up in households where body exposure is handled in different ways. In some homes a child never sees a nude body. In others, nudity is an everyday natural occurrence. If you were raised in a home where body exposure was closely guarded, I could see where it may make you feel a little uncomfortable to see a mother nursing (although if done like most women do it, there is nothing to see). I say, if it makes you uncomfortable, step away. It is here to stay!
I agree, 100%! What would you do?
