Re: Inappropriate place to NIP?

I would have done the same thing, and in fact, I have nursed DD in the bank more than once. Seems like that would have been a lot more discrete than feeding the baby out in the car for all the world to see.

Re: Inappropriate place to NIP?

Shame on Scott.

You did the right thing, you breastfed your child when he needed it. If other people, including Scott, have an issue with your feeding your child....then they need to check themselves and figure out their REAL problem. Is it because they think it is sexual? If so, they need to see a shrink. Your breasts are making milk to feed your child, there is nothing sexual or shameful about that. I never use a blanket or nursing shirts for that matter but I am still very discreet. People normally don't even realize I am BFing my son until I say that he is eating.

Re: Inappropriate place to NIP?

tsk, tsk on your dh. Does he not know that in Canada it is ILLEGAL to ask a bf'ing woman to leave & nurse somewhere else? As long as it is legal for children to be in a location it is legal for you to nurse.

I used to sit in the store displays at Superstore because they have no chairs. If they did not have a display that had a place to sit I'd plant myself on the floor in an aisle.

Re: Inappropriate place to NIP?

I have nursed my baby during a bank appt, right there across the desk from the person we were talking to! You were NOT 'inappropriate' at all! HE was inappropriate!
And as far as "I just don't see why you couldn't go nurse in the van.." Well, I just don't see why you should!

The only inapropriate place to NIP is in the bathroom, or in hiding. IMO

Re: Inappropriate place to NIP?

i would have fed him right then and there, no place is inappropriate IMO.......and in most states it is perfectly legal to NIP wherever you are otherwise allowed to be. Screw your dh and anyone who doesnt like it!

Re: Inappropriate place to NIP?

If the place is appropriate for a child to be bottle fed, then it is appropriate to be breastfed...plain and simple. My husband has said that a time or two, but I now realize a lot of it has to do with the people around. Sometimes he gets concerned that people are checking me out...but he is getting more and more comfortable about it and I have just said, look this is his way to be fed and if people have a problem with it they do not have to look plain and simple. I am not infringing on anyone else, I am not walking around with my top up around my neck and I am sure that you were not either.

The stronger I have stayed with this position the stronger Jer has gotten with it as well. I think that he is just scared that someone is going to say something and I will have to open my mouth then as well...lol

But seriously if it is appropriate for a bottle fed babe then it is appropriate for your babe to be fed in the same place. Besides if it is cold out in the vehicle and you are running the vehicle while you are nursing you can get in trouble for not havinhg your child in a car seat....it happened to a girl friend of mine, fortunately she just got a warning....but the cop was very stern with her.

thats illegal......its only a crime if the vehicle is MOVING! same reason an adult can sit in a non moving car without a seatbelt. If I had been in that situation i would have read the cop the riot act.
