Getting comfortable with nursing in public

Sometimes moms even though it is socially acceptable and they have legal rights to breastfeed in public, sometimes they just do not feel comfortable doing it. And if a mom does not feel comfortable, she should not do it. She should only do what feels comfortable for her in that situation because the baby is going to know if it is an uncomfortable situation for her. And usually there comes a time in every mom´s nursing situation where she does not feel like breastfeeding in bathroom stalls anymore. And that is when she will come out, when she is ready and when she feels comfortable. And moms should not be judged about where they breastfeed or how they breastfeed and luckily most states have laws protecting us to do it where we want and how we want to do it.
