Have you ever nursed in a public bathroom?

I know many here NIP and I normally don't have a problem with it. I am ashamed to say I have Nursed in a public restroom twice. Am I the only one?

Between my two girls, I have been breastfeeding for a total of 23 months, never once nursed in a public restroom.

With my first, I barely ever nursed in public. I would nurse in a restroom or in teh comforts of my car (so cramped). With my second, I have restroom nursed, but I am getting more comfortable just doing it whereever I am. It really depends on where I am and who is around

Re: Have you ever nursed in a public bathroom?

I just nursed in a restroom this past week. But it wasn't intentional. I changed DD diaper and then realized that it was time for her to eat. There were two comfy chairs there in the bathroom so I figured it was meant to be! But that is the only time so far. The cool thing was that no one seemed weirded out about it -in fact two ladies commented on how contented she was!

I have. I honestly felt uncomfortable a lot of times when I NIP; mainly because I was always told to cover up.... so I just went to a bathroom and nursed privately so I could enjoy looking at my ds while he nursed instead of a blanket or sling tail! lol.
I did feel great one time when I looked up from NIP and a woman was smiling sweetly at me, made me feel like I wasn't the ONLY one! lol

I nurse in the restrooms at Dillards. They have a separate section for the mothers!

I breastfed for about 3.5 months before my milk dried up, but I never nursed in the restroom!!! and if someone told me to do so, I'd just talk back! Come on people, you don't eat on the toilet, don't expect my baby to do that!
I usually had a cover with me or a blanket, and if not I tried to be dicreet, but I only had people admiring that, saying what good mother I am and stuff so I guess I got lucky!

I have quite a few times. The last time I did was a few weeks ago when I went to see my oncologist. I didn't know what to do. The waiting room was loaded w/old people, so I went to the bathroom stall. I can't believe I did that. W/DS, I nursed him a few times at the mall in those "family" restrooms. Not in the stall, but on the benches they have inside.

Yes but only because it had an area designed for feeding and changing baby it has a door separating it from the rest of the restroom.
