We found this wonderful story on the Breast Is Best Facebook Fanpage. What relationship is more delicate than the a Mother and young child. Awwww!!
Last Friday (11/2/12) President Obama was speaking at our local high school. I took my 10wk old son with me. I did pack some formula in the bag as I knew the place would be packed and was unsure about breastfeeding in front of thousands. My son is an eater and seeing as we were there about 4hrs he had no problem devouring the 8oz I packed. So there I was front row with a hungry baby. I knew I didn’t want him to start crying, as the President had just begun to speak, so I covered him up with his blanket and let him go to town. I noticed the President glance at me while speaking and give a little smile. I thought surely I imagined it. Then, when he was done speaking he came down to do the usual crowd greeting, shaking hands and whatnot. As soon as he got close enough, he pointed to me and gestured his hands in the “hand me the baby” manner. So I handed my son over! He danced with him a second and kissed him on his forehead. As he was handing him back he smiled, nodded at me, and said “good job”. Everyone has been asking why he told me good job and I just giggle. Here I was worried about breastfeeding in front of all those people and the only person who noticed was The President of the United States, and he supports it! Best feeling EVER!*DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME WRITING A POLITICAL OR NEGATIVE COMMENT. IT WILL BE DELETED IMMEDIATELY. DO NOT RESPOND TO ANY POLITICAL OR NEGATIVE COMMENTS. RESPONSES WILL BE DELETED IMMEDIATELY, AS WELL. Breast feeding is bipartisan.*

Great article and I love the fact that she chose to still feed her child in public as well as be discreet about it.
