Pros of breastfeeding in public

NO CONS

However, not many people talk about public breastfeeding being very beneficial.
Well, it is.

1. Being able to breastfeed in public I was able to get out and do chores, live my social life, entertain my older child at the park,
museum or library, go out and have lunch with my husband, even travel across the ocean few times.

2. Breastfeeding on demand (anywhere and anytime your child wants) is not only healthy for a child, but it is also a way
to keep your high flow of breast milk coming.

3. By breastfeeding in public we become so to say advocates of breastfeeding to other mothers or young teenagers.
We send a message that breastfeeding is the best food for babies and young children, yet we don't have to hide it or be embarrassed of it.
