As a woman myself, I don't have a personal problem with it but I think it IS disrespectful to the people around you. Breastfeeding can be done in private, letting it all hang out in public isn't respectful and usually attention-mongering, like this. If a man can't whip it out and pee in public, a woman should have the respect for others to not breastfeed in public (where younger people may see and people who just DON'T want to see your goods). It's funny how some women are standing up for this, but they'd freak out if a man pulled it out for a legit reason (peeing).

A real lady and Mother can feed her baby properly without making it a public event. Whatever happened to an appreciation for maintaining one's privacy? Breastfeeding is something that is between Mother and child--without turning it into a peepshow for the public. This whole "let it all hang out/in your face concept is getting old! Let's hope at least most Moms have some common sense with all this!

As an Active duty NCO I am appalled by this I am going to start wearing sneakers and puttin my hat on backwards now as well because it's what I want to do in uniform. People always taking advantage.. instead of making this two the "breastfeeding hero's" give them a LOC because of improper wear of the uniform!!

As a mother and an active duty service member(7yr) I think its great. There are many of us out there that breast feed our babies in public. I don't see anything wrong with it. Any where a baby is allowed to be bottle fded a mother can nurse. If you don't like it don't look. As far a the uniform goes there are people that do far worse in uniform.

Well here we go again, women crying about their maternal responsibilities. First realize that they're GUARD not active duty and that explains a lot. I'm all for a mother breastfeeding as nature intended but in uniform now? Really? C'mon, that's inappropriate and a lack of respect for the uniform they're "proud to wear". The military didn't issue you a child; however, now we all have to endure policy changes and/or "clarification" of the proper wear of the uniform which should already be known especially by an NCO! New moms will exploit this, get their way and further segraegate themselves. If they can go get their kids on a lunch break, etc. and breast feed then it's surely acceptable for the dads out there to get their kids and bottle feed them during duty time as well.

I am the originator of that "deficating in uniform" comment. And this is a prime example of words being twisted to promote one side of a story for the media. My comment was in reaction to an argument that these women breastfeeding promotes the prevention of various diseases and things of that nature. So, my response was that it is comparable to me taking a picture of myself in uniform on the toilet in order to promote healthy colons for the DoD. Regardless of the cause, the issue lies not with breastfeeding, but with military members (no matter the gender) that have publicized pictures of themselves with unsecure uniform garments/ exposing "private parts" of the body. Just months ago, individuals got hammered for a class morale picture from training that was blown entirely out of proportion. So what makes this breastfeeding in uniform any better? Now the issues falls within the arena of "Servicewomen breastfeeding"; which is nowhere near where the original complaints began.
