Honestly, staring is part of the culture here, I don't think they mean any disrespect over it. I get stared at for being a lone white chick at a kopitiam. I have nursed in public when nursing rooms are unavailable (at the malls I frequent they have only one room in each area and when your newborn is *HUNGRY* you don't want to mess around looking for the next room) and I honestly haven't noticed that folks stare, because I'm too busy looking at my baby Nobody has complained, and if they're offended but keep it to themselves I really don't care what they think. I think as long as it's fairly obvious what you're doing most folks will look away to give you privacy.Britmummy2011 wrote:Hi everyone,
I have a 2 wk old baby (my 1st) - so far I've needed to go out with her 3 times and have used nursing rooms to feed her.
It's great how in SG there are nursing rooms in most of the malls, clinics, public buildings etc.
BUT when there is no nursing room... do ppl find they get stared at a lot for breastfeeding in public, as a foreigner?
I was stared at SO much when I was 6+ months pregnant... I am kind of dreading having to nurse in public... although I plan to use a shawl/cloth to cover up. (I don't really want to express and bottle feed if possible).
What are people's experiences? Have you found SG tolerant of breastfeeding in public?
