Legally in Canada, you can nurse your baby out in public wherever you and your baby are allowed to be. You may never have anyone say anything negative to you but it certainly does happen. It can help your confidence to plan out what you might say if someone questions your right to breastfeed in a particular place or suggests you should cover up. See LLLC’s Dealing with Thoughtless Remarks for ideas.
Getting comfortable breastfeeding away from your home base can take some time. Many mothers have had their first “public” breastfeeding experience at a La Leche League meeting. Knowing that you are in the company of others who are breastfeeding can help you relax as your baby latches. For those who are pregnant, seeing breastfeeding babies of all sizes can help you visualize yourself breastfeeding your own baby.
