While you are out and about, watch for women feeding babies in public - and report back. You can do this one time, every once in a while, or daily if you wish. We can compile a picture of what it is currently like for women to feed a baby in public.
Here's what I want you to notice and report back:
When you first noticed the mom feeding in public, what caught your eye first, to make you notice her?
Where were you - in a restaurant, in a mall, in someone's home, etc?
What was the method of feeding - BFing or bottle-feeding? If you know what was in the bottle, let us know.
Was mom seated comfortably, in full view - or hiding in a corner, etc?
Was mom alone - or with friends or family?
Did mom look calm and relaxed - or nervous and looking about?
Were others looking at her - or ignoring her?
Was anyone smiling at her, frowning, or giving her dirty looks?
If mom was BFing, did she use a cover-up?
If mom was bottle-feeding, did she hold the baby?
Anything else you think is pertinent...
