I can only speak from my experience breast feeding two babies so take this for what it is worth:

I breastfed my babies at the mall, but I chose to use a blanket for my comfort and modesty, not to make others comfortable. I did the same at home when we had visitors.

I don't care if anyone breast feeds in public. I don't look at it. Much the same as I don't give a hoot if you are sipping a soda, I don't care if your kid is having a snack.
