LOL! I have had so many older women tell me that! I just say "Having kids isn't good for my back".

DS was a fussy nurser and would flail and move around so have the time I was simply exposing myself - and this was whether we were out or at home. He seems to equate eating with exercise.

Hi Maryann
I'm glad to know I don't have the only one who thinks eating is a time to excerise. At least I know I'll never be afraid he is going to get cramps from swimming after eating the way he "swims" while he eats now LOL
I'm kinda with you... I don't mind a nice smile but I guess I kinda prefer just when nobody really notices
of course that is getting more and more difficult

Good point!

DS is crazy, and nursing was never that nice, quiet bonding time. It was hell on a stick for me. I would be sitting there trying to manage him and his butt would be up on my shoulder...WTH?! He is all wonderful, crazy, wild boy!

I don't know how this plays into it for everyone else but I am well endowed to begin with and have always hated people staring at my chest. So, when they got even bigger and hurt and were leaking everywhere and I had to NIP it was just very, very uncomfortable for me. I wish it weren't but...such is life.

Re: If you were NIP...

I would want to say something, but maybe not about the NIP right away. I might strike up a conversation about the baby, or something, or say that I have been in the same place and had to nurse my own baby. Personally, I wouldn't mind at all though if someone were to say something positive to me. It's nice to get encouragement.

I am the type that might have a hard time holding my tongue if someone said something negative though. Thank goodness I haven't gotten much of that.

Re: If you were NIP...

I think the card is a great idea... it wouldn't bother me really if someone said something... but I am not really private about it anymore

A well timed smile or thumbs up would always be welcome!
(As well as cards, "Thank yous", etc!)

Re: If you were NIP...

With my first dd I would cover up sooooo much and then make dh stand in front of me so no one could see..............with #2 I am like dude, you dont like it, dont freking look!! I am well endowed as well and it is just to hard to try and really "conceal" EVERYTHING. Now dont get me wrong I cover up as much as I can, but it isnt easy to keep covered with a baby who loves to grab stuff!!

My SIL never did because both of her kids would moan really loud while nursing!! IT was pretty funny well for us, embaressing for her!!!!

Re: If you were NIP...

I have seen some mama's NIP but my DH always notices first! He is not a sicko but he says that now that I do it ALL of the time, he is trained or something Anyway, when I see a mama sling wearing or nursing, I always ask them if they would like to be supported by moms that nurse or sling wear too and if they would like to come to an AP or LLL meeting with me. I give them info. I wish I would have known about AP groups and LLL when I was just starting out BF! My DS is 20 months and still going strong... and BTW, we still NIP! It's not that often, but I will until he doesn't need it anymore.

Re: If you were NIP...

I would love someone to say something to me while I'm NIP. Yesterday I was NIP at church in the foyer and afterwards during lunch an older woman said she saw me giving my baby lunch and thought it was great that I was nursing, that it's such a special bond with your baby. I've never even seen someone NIP.
