LOL love that! Same thing happened at a company summer picnic - a coworker walked all the way back to her car (across the park) to feed her LO - I was like - huh, look at that lovely spot over there in the shade under that tree... What's so great about the car in the summer???

Re: where will you bf?

I'll nurse most places, but I'll always look for a private place in the area if possible. I typically have a bottle of BM with me so that I can feed DS if we are stuck in traffic so if I still have it and we're not going anywhere for awhile sometimes I'll just let him have it if he's already drank from the bottle earlier (don't want to waste my milk!). Of course, I'll pump my breast later if I do this.

Re: where will you bf?

I'm on my 3rd BFing LO, so I'm not shy. Altough I do try to be discreate. If we are out and about I'll sit in an area out of the way and hold DS's little hand so he can't lift my shirt up for show and tell. The one place where I wll leave the main room is the LDS church DS#1 attends cub scouts. They have a room just for nursing mothers w/ comfy chairs. I'm the only nursing mom right now so it gets kind of lonely in there, but it's kind of an unwriten rule to use the room and since we're guests at the church I comply and it's only once a month.

Re: where will you bf?

I'll nurse anywhere and everywhere. I oldest at starnge places like walking around the flea market...lol. My youngest has been nursed at so many strange places it isn't even funny because we always have somewhere to go since my oldest is well older. This summer we went on vacation and I am proud to say that my youngest was nursed at all the National Momuments in DC and in Arlington Cemetary...lol. He was going trough a growth spurt and I just let him latch and stay latched. I don't cover either. At church now that DS is older I do go to the nursing Momma's room but if I couldn't I would feed him right there.

Re: where will you bf?

i think its hard to say so far.... once ds and i get the whole breastfeeding thing down, after hes born, then i will nurse wherever hes hungry, but until he and i get in sync, i dont want anyone looking at me, talking to me about it or anything else or even acknowledging my presence, lol. but once we have the whole thing down pat, then i'll nurse wherever we want. If my SIL can wear the clothes she wears (shes a stripper) with her fake breasts hanging out, nipple and all, I can feed my kid wherever I damn well please.

Re: where will you bf?

When DS was nursing I would nurse him wherever, whenever. If we were in a loud area I would try to find a quieter spot, but nothing really phased him once he latched on.

Re: where will you bf?

I feed anywhere and everywhere.. I do not feel like I should have to take special precautions to feed my child.. If she's hungry, I whip out the boob. I do not cover up either, since it just ticks DD off anyways. If someone doesnt want to ssee my breast performing it's natural function, they can choose not to look at us or leave the area.

Totally agree with you, Amanda.

I NEVER cover up..or go in a different room/area.. Not happening. If you don't like it, WALK AWAY or don't look!
