Yes, I have nursed a child in public, but not without a blanket or other cover.

I know I was managing to be discreet enough when a friend of my husband's came over to see the baby and I had to say, "How about in a few minutes? The baby is feeding right now." He had no clue.

I do think that the baby's needs have to come first, and that moms should not be forced to sit in a restroom somewhere to feed the baby. That said, Moms can and should be discreet.
