Re: where will you bf?

I will mostly do only privately. Only because I, personally, feel uncomfortable nursing in public. HOWEVER if I'm out at the mall or what ever, I'll go to the family rest lounge or nursing room to nurse. I WON'T nurse in the bathroom because I don't think it's sanitary. But I wouldn't run home just because I have to nurse either.

Re: where will you bf?

I will BF anywhere; if she is hungry, I will feed her.

I always wear a cami under a t-shirt, so I can pull up the t-shirt and pull down the cami on one side. (I'm lucky to be small enough that I can easily go braless) That way my pale flabby belly doesn't show, and even if she pops off my t-shirt will slip down and cover me up.

Re: where will you bf?

I will nurse in my home,
I will nurse wherever we roam.
I will nurse on a train,
I will nurse on a plane.
I will nurse in the car,
I will nurse near or far.
I will nurse in the park,
in broad daylight or in the dark.
I will nurse when we're out to eat,
Nursing babies can't be beat!
I will nurse when out shopping
I will nurse without stopping.
Stare if you want, I don't care...
I'll nurse my babies ANYWHERE!



I'm in a goofy mood tonight. And I can't wait to nurse another baby!

Re: where will you bf?

Shanna, that is too cute!
I have nursed my daughters practically everywhere. My eldest I nursed at the base of the Statue of Liberty! My youngest has nursed many a time at the Cleveland Metroparks Zoo and our Giant Eagle grocery store. Since she is an acrobat contortionist now, she nurses really well in the sling. I am a big lactivist since I had my eldest... and my children are big yellers with no patience (just like mama)!

I feed DS anywhere and everywhere. Sometimes I cover up, but if I have a shirt that can cover most of everything, I won't cover up. I am at the point that I don't care anymore.

Today was the first time I nursed DS in our church service. Granted, we were in the back and I had a nursing cover on, but for me, that was a big step. Usually, I'll nurse him in the nursing moms' room. Today, I just didn't care.

Our church is so laid back, I don't know why I am so self-consious.

Privately mostly. I've NIP'd, and I don't really feel comfortable with it. I'm self conscious and private normally anyhow. I've nursed in church, in old navy, in my car a few times, in a bathroom (yes, I said that.. it was also my first time NIP. Chunker was 5 weeks old and it was less than a week after my gallbladder surgery. Nursing was the hardest at that point.). I try not to be out too long so it's a non issue. We nurse right before we leave the house, and make things snappy.

Re: where will you bf?

I voted other cause i refuse to bf in dirty places or bathrooms or if someone is near me smoking....ewwww yuck.

i should add that i will and have nursed anywhere I want to. NO one has ever stopped me or made me feel bad in anyway. I am a very bold person and honestly think maybe people are scared of me...thats good cause i dont want them telling me where my kids can eat.

I will nurse everywhere except the bathroom... unless they have one of those sitting areas like Nordstrom! Tonight I nursed at Old Navy while shopping! My DH does not like if my breast is showing though, so I have try to make sure no skin is exposed without totally covering my baby. I think covering up the baby makes it so much more obvious. If you just hold the baby in your arms no one usually notices. Besides...who likes to eat in the dark?
