8. Not just the US. I was told by an officer in London.

While waiting in a London train station breastfeeding my son while COVERED with a blanket, I was told by an officer that I could not do that in public and that I had to go to the restroom to breastfeed my baby!! That officer must have stared at me a little while to have even concluded that I was nursing. My son's feet were dangling from beneath the blanket.

It was late night and the stinky restroom was practically dark. I fumed. I was exhausted since we had just returned from France, a day-long trip by train from the Alsace region, and had to make another leg of the trip up to Cambridge to our flat.

I had never imagined that the English would've have been that damn prudish. I had never been told while nursing in public, always under a blanket, here in the States to get myself out-of-sight.

The French, of course, did not have a problem with my breastfeeding in public. Always covered, of course.

This happened in 1990.
