Re: where will you bf?

Although I have nursed DD in numerous public places, the VAST majority of her boob time takes place at home. I mean, that's where we are much of the time. Now that she's so distractable, I will find a quiet place with less distraction so that I can keep my nipples attached to my breasts! No restrooms, though. And I DO like the car (front seat) because we can both stretch out and relax.

Re: where will you bf?

I chose everywhere but it depends on the situation. I've certainly NIP, but in someone's private home, I ask for their comfort before "whipping it out" so to speak.

Sometimes at a large gathering, we need to find a quiet space for DD to focus, but otherwise, anytime, anywhere.

Re: where will you bf?

Hey man! I breastfeed at church. If you can't breastfeed at church, then where can you? We live with our in-laws. And I have to say, I've even had my daughter latch on in front of my father in law. I do try to be discreet, but I know I'm not going to get a blanket in my own house just to have her lift it, toss it, and whatever else she can do with it.

Re: where will you bf?

anywhere i am, i "whip it out" and nurse when dd2 is hungry or needs comfort.
and with the lact-aid i use for at the breast supplimentation, i need to see allthats going on, so i not only dont use any cover up, but i wear shirts i can come out the top of on purpose. if i didnt, nursing could be a bit more difficult for us.

Re: where will you bf?

If I had the guts --- everywhere. I was asked to leave a restaurant once and then like the next week I went to my first playgroup (very mainstream) and when I started to nurse (my 8 wk old DD) was asked to go into the back of the house! I'm quite the hypocrite though, bcause I can talk a good game! I can argue why bfeeding shouldn't be an issue anywhere and no one should have a problem w/ it and so on -- but after being "shunned" I do get nervous and usually head to my car. :0( My family has gotten used to it though, so I do nurse in front of FIL, BIL's (plural), My pappa, and so on... Hopefully it'll be different and I'll be brave and bold (like my mouth) for baby #2!

Everywhere....except the sanctuary (I haven't quite worked up the courage yet!) and the grocery store (I have huge boobs and still cannot figure out how to shop and nurse).

Re: where will you bf?

Ok - I did vote everywhere - but not during services at church - that just feels a little too odd to me. I just step out into the hall. Otherwise, yeah I have surprised myself with how little I mind breastfeeding almost anywhere.
