I breast fed both of my children until they were 13 months old, and always covered myself while in public. While I agree with you that breast feeding is the most natural thing in the world, so is going pee, but I wouldn't do that out in the open for everyone to see. It takes nothing to whip out a blanket and cover yourself and yes to walk around and have your breasts bared in front of children (even if it is nourishing your child) is shocking to kids who are to little to understand or big enough to be embarrassed. You can still promote and encourage breast feeding, while also covering up. And as far as comparing us to Saudi Arabia or Europe, it reminds of my children saying "but so and so's mom let's them do it", and my reply is "well I'm not so and so's mom".
