Public breastfeeding. It's a parenting topic that's as divisive as it gets. Some people who are hoping to normalize the practice don't bat an eyelash when seeing a woman nursing sans Hooter Hider in public. In fact, they may even offer a nod of solidarity. But others just can't get behind it. Perhaps it's an issue of how some people are raised, or perhaps it's an issue, as some say, of "manners."
In Breastmilk, a film by Dana Ben-Ari and the latest production by Ricki Lake, a couple with different views on public breastfeeding, Mitch and Kaiva, are interviewed. While Mitch feels that it's polite to cover one's breasts up while nursing in public, especially, say, at a restaurant ("it may disrupt someone's meal"), Kaiva feels very differently.
