LOVE this man!

My LO won't stay in the nursery at church so I always wear him anyway. He naps better and I know when he needs to nurse. I usually go into the nursing room but I had my oldest with me during the first part of the service. DH was working and not with me. It was time to nurse the baby so I went into the lobby because he was fussy so I brought ODS with me so he could join the kids coming out for children's church. Anyway an older man who I know really well walked up and said "chow time?" I said yep! He sat down right next to me where I was nursing with no cover and he said "I'm so glad to see you out in the open breastfeeding. I think more moms need to do that." I thanked him and then he said when his kids were born it was a time of when "doctors thought they could do it better than God" and said his wife never breastfed. And he actually looked disappointed. Not in her but in the doctors. Anyway I thought it was cool to get that kind of support and encouragement from an older man.
