I am surprised she didn't come over and pull it back up for us. I wasn't even exposed in the slightest.
That's ridiculous but it seems like other women/moms are the biggest critics when we should be supporting each other! I definitely don't live in a crunchy area so it'a going to be interesting when I NIP with #2 lol.

Re: They act like I plopped by boob on their table

My BFF, whom I hadn't seen for a long time, said me BFing my 28 month old was "just disturbing".....found we have NOTHING in common anymore and are no longer friends.

ETA: And her teenage daughter said she will never BF because she doesn't want her boobs to sag (BTW, her mother got a boob lift and tummy tuck)

Re: They act like I plopped by boob on their table

OH man this is terrible I have nursed everywhere w/ all 4 of my babies. Although i dont like to nurse my 18month old in public because she is so nosey and creates a mess with the milk and leaves my boob hanging LOL So i dont typically nurse her besides at home or at church in the nursing room. But she can eat table food so snacks are a great alternitive for her. As for the 6 month old yes he gets it wherever whenever! I normally cover up if in a busy place...but at the park or in a semi private area i dont...and thats due to my comfort level i guess...pluss when i am chasing the other 3 i like to be covered incase #4 pops off!!

funny story last year at a good friends wedding, i was in the wedding and dd was 3months old. She got hungry a few times at the reception and we were at the head table and in a strapless dress that had to be unzipped along w/ my tummy control bra. So the waiter suggested i go under the table to nurse baby she said moms do it all the time. So i did! LOL i wasnt about to get half naked and i didnt wanna have to leave to find a spot to get half naked to nurse the baby. Why arent bridesmaids dresses more nursing friendly LOL

Re: They act like I plopped by boob on their table

Wow, I'm sorry. I'm becoming more and more brave about NIP. So far, I've only done it with a cover or blanket, but my goal is to do without eventually. (DH has a problem with that, though...that's the main reason I've hesitated.) No one has even batted an eye, and I live in a non-crunchy area.

Im sorry but if my baby wants food, I will feed them. If Im hungry, Im going to eat right then. Why wait? Its the same with older kids. If their hungry ur not gonna wait to go to the car to feed them food in case it offends another person. Plus, people so offended so easily nowadays
