Although you may have a very supportive husband/boyfriend/father of child regarding your choice to nurse, when mothers enter a nursing station in a public place it is most likely because they do desire a bit of privacy. Bringing a man into this environment, in many cases, which there are no doors separating private areas, you are turning their private place into a public place once more. This is not to say that nursing should not be done in front of men, but to encourage all nursing mothers to remember that not all nursing mothers have the same comfort level with whom they choose to nurse in front of. Mothers in these areas will not likely have brought anything to cover themselves up to avoid mishaps and for this reason have entered the nursing station. Nursing stations are for private nursing by choice and should remain by choice.
