Beyonce’ Breastfeeding Drama – Are You O.K. With ‘Nursing In Public’ ?

By breastfeeding her seven-week-old at the table in a restaurant last week, Beyoncé unwittingly joined the growing ranks of “lactivists” taking a stand in support for nursing in public. These warrior women have pushed for legislation promoting breastfeeding and staged “nurse-ins” to promote tolerance. Facing off against them are those who believe nursing mothers should retreat to bathroom stalls or backrooms when feeding.

Anayah Sangodele-Ayoka and Jeanine Valrie, the co-founders and editors, are thrilled that Beyoncé, by openly breastfeeding little Blue, haspopularized discussions about nursing in public. Many have praised the singer, while others have condemned the idea that she engaged in NIP — the acronym for “nursing in public.”

    I LOVE THIS!!!!!!! I fed my twins in public regularly! They HAD to be fed and we HAD to get out of the house sometimes. I refused to bottle feed just to appease the public. I cannot believe that people make such a fuss over something so natural.

    It is not a great thing to make a fuss over this issue. Infants need to be fed at regular intervals, and every mother has the right to feed her child, even if it is in public. If a mother covers herself and the child while feeding, then it should be totally alright.
    If Beyonce’ fed little Blue in public it is no great deal according to me.

    I feed my baby all the time in public. If my husband and I are out to dinner and she is hungry, then my baby has every right to be fed. I do not just pull my breast out and start feeding her. I place a blanket over myself and she eats under there. I do not have to go hide because we are not doing anything wrong. Breastfeeding is natural and there is no better source of nutrition for babies than a mother's breast milk. And for those that don't know, infants need to eat every 2-3 hours….we have to leave the house at some point in time.
