Breastfeeding in public

I always found breastfeeding in public OK. No one ever said anything to me, wherever I fed my daughter, and people never seemed to stare either. I live in London though so no one bats an eyelid and anything… I’ve heard from friends and other mums though that they feel too self conscious to even try breastfeeding in public, regardless of whether they’ve had a reaction from someone. I think it helps if you can see another mum feeding nearby, so I thought it would be good if there were more breastfeeding areas in cafes and museums etc to help people feel comfortable and know there is a space to go when they’re out.
