If seeing a woman breastfeed her child in public is offensive to you, then Costa Rica is not the country for you. I can’t tell you how many places that I have been where the woman are breastfeeding, and not covering it up. I have been at the clinic, the park, the bus station, and even inside a government building just to name a few. There is no shame in it here and there should not be anywhere. This is the most natural way to feed your baby and they know it. If the baby is hungry they do not stop to think about where they are at or who is around, the only thing that matters is feeding that baby. I have seen worse things in the newspaper than a woman breastfeeding her baby. They will take out the whole breast and put the baby up to it, they will not put a towel or blanket over them or the child to try to hide it. Why should they? It’s already hot and humid here in the rain forest. So, if you find this offensive, you should think twice before visiting. It is a natural part of life here and no one stares or makes comments about it.
