I find this quote very telling, “LDS church member Shelby Aiono said she thinks breast-feeding is great, but she says there is a time and place for it.  ‘I probably would find a room where I can breast feed in private, also just because that’s my sort of personal body and I don’t want to expose that to the world.’”

THIS is why we need to normalize breastfeeding.  It is not an optional activity where we can choose the time and place our babies get hungry.  And yes, it is your personal body, but you are NOT exposing it to the world anymore than you are exposing it to the world when you hold your baby in your bare arms.
