Yep one right near me I'm so excited I have a LO nursing and can participate! Somehow we got the most FaceTime on our local newscast with the great cloth diaper change - though I had no clue there was a camera near us! Wondering if they will cover this one too or not but it would be great to promote nursing in public!

My son doesn't like to nurse in public unless he is desperate. I can see it now... "joey we traveled three hours! This is for the record!" And he'd be trying to look at all the babies or something :)

My daughter is the same way!!! She is so distractible and always wants to know what else is going on.

My son is the same way, he will eat for 30 seconds then look around

this is so cool. I was so bummed I missed the CD one as it would have been great to get a group going where I am in the Caribbean. I can't miss this one...this is IMPORTANT, I am going to see if we can get a spot. I am still not sure if BF in public is actually legal in the country where I am, I'd hate to highlight a potential "issue" as I NIP all the time (no one ever has made a complaint). I guess I really need to pinpoint our law here first to determine our location.

Grrr!!! I won't have an earthside baby yet for this. Wonder if the 4.5 year old would be willing to participate, or would that perhaps harm the cause? :giggle:

This is us too. I plan to go, but I am not so sure I will be able to get my 12 month old to latch on at that exact minute when there will be so many other people around to look at.
