"I really don’t give much thought to feeding my daughter in public, she needs to eat so I feed her. I thought maybe I’d be anxious about it but speaking to other mommies truly gave me the confidence I needed to do it. Mommies, it’s ok to breastfeed our babies in public & not feel any shame for it."

Her main concern is for her kid, and she has no time to consider who is observing.
