We NIP at IKEA!


And to think with dd1, I was so nervous about bfing the whole two weeks I did it that I wouldn't even bf in front of people at my own apt. Dd2 got to eat in the dining room furniture area just like normal people and with other people there, too--dh couldn't even tell she was nursing, lol. Got to browse while she ate. No hiding in bathrooms or using blankets/covers that make her overheat and cry. Just bfing and looking at new chairs

Re: We NIP at IKEA!

That's great!
I remember bfing while walking home from the mall one day.
I'm sure people thought I was weird, but we all gotta eat right!

Good for you. I nursed in public at the zoo last month while pushing my DD in stroller. Didn't even realize the blanket fell off my shoulder and was giving the little kids a little show. Oh well, these things happen and my son was happy and content.

Re: We NIP at IKEA!

That's awesome, mama!
I remember how super nervous I was when we first nursed out in public...I'm sure my face was bright red the whole time ...
now it just makes me feel empowered!
Good for you!

Thanks! We've NIPed at the park before with our AP mommies group, but never alone in a totally public place, just walking around.

Re: We NIP at IKEA!

that's awesome! congrats! I used to be so nervous about nip with my first and I think I managed not to for the whole 7 months she nursed. When my second came along I got a crash course in nip because she was a preemie who nursed every 30 minutes or less, we had a 45 minute ride into town, and my husband deployed so I had no help, and I had another child. I had no choice but to nip when running errands. And it really is empowering once you figure it out. Much better than being ashamed and hiding and avoiding public places and being nervous about whether or not people will see you or get offended. Now iwth the 3rd baby I've truly nursed EVERYWHERE! We nip on a moonbounce at a cookout a few weeks back.
