Re: Have you ever nursed in a public bathroom?

I have never done it in the stall. I have a couple of times by the sink area, once because we were with my grandparents who I didn't feel comfortable nursing in front of. The other because I still had my daughter in her wrap and it was more comfortable to be standing in the restroom than in the booth. Oh and I forgot at Nordstoms they have a lounge area with a sofa so I have done it there too.

I did once. DS#1 was 3 weeks old and I was wearing a dress that had to come up from the bottom to nurse him.

I am still learning to get him latched on without exposing A LOT(and there is a lot) so though I have not nursed in the bathroom I have gone in to get him latched on and come back out.

There have been many times that I have gone into the restroom to get one of my boys latched on. I just don't want to expose too much. I do come back out as soon as they're latched on.

What is in a public bathroom there? I ask because when shopping I use the parent's room which consists of lounge chairs, change tables, microwave, tv and seperate child's toilet so not sure if thats the same a bathroom.

Re: Have you ever nursed in a public bathroom?

When my ds#1 was born 11 years ago, the Governor of our state (OR) signed into law a protection for mothers who nursed in public. He said it was sad that it was even an issue. Nursing mothers were a common sight less than 50 years ago, and no one thought twice when they saw a mother feeding her baby in public. Now we need laws to protect mothers from indecent exposure suits.
The only way I'll feed my babies in a restroom (which I have) is for the comfy chairs in a lounge area.

Re: Have you ever nursed in a public bathroom?

I don't think I was completely comfortable nursing my son in public until he was at least 6 months. So yes, I did nurse him in public restrooms several times. However, with my 2nd and 3rd little ones, I nursed them everywhere and my baby who's due any day now will also be nursed wherever and whenever she/he wants! Now I have no qualms about nursing in public and if it is in a place or with people where I don't feel totally comfortable, nursing in the sling always does the trick!

Re: Have you ever nursed in a public bathroom?

unless i happened to be in there already and ds was hungry (in which case i would then walk out of the bathroom when i normally would, not stay while i fed him), or one of the nice lounge areas, no i would never feed ds in a bathroom, nor would i ever eat in one. if you dont like me NIP, its really an easy fix...DONT LOOK! i have no qualms about telling anyone to shove it.

Re: Have you ever nursed in a public bathroom?

I've nursed in a public restroom, but never in a stall (I would never nurse in a stall or on a toilet ). The first time I was at a wedding and ds was 6 weeks old--I fed him sitting in a chair in the bathroom. The second time was at the mall with dd a month or two ago. There were benches in a room separate from the bathroom (so would that even be considered "in" the restroom?).
