Can't believe *I*did this!

Went to the circus tonight. Dh, who is horribly against nip was right next to me as was a lady I didn't know. When ds got hungry I put him in the Mai Tai and nursed away!! I wore a nursing tank so my belly wouldn't show when I pulled up my shirt. No one was any the wiser! I think dh might have known, but he didn't say anything and you certainly couldn't see anything, so he didn't have ground to stand on. I seriously can't believe this is me! I never imagined being here!

Re: Can't believe *I*did this!

I nurse my baby frequently in public. If he's hungry, I feed him, and I don't want to sit in a bathroom to do it. I'm always covered with a hooter hider, so no one can see anything. Last spring, we were on Coronado Island on vacation watching an air show. My 2 month old was hungry, we were sitting on the grass by the beach with of people. I nursed him, didn't think anything of it. When we were leaving, a lady came up to me and told me how proud she was of me for nursing my little guy in public. That really suprised me, I guess I just didn't realize how odd of an occurence it was.

WAY TO GO! NIP isn't a bad thing at all. We all have to eat right? Just as you would walk around with a snack, your little one does too.

Re: Can't believe *I*did this!

yea! i remember my stagefright nursing in public at first - i never guessed i'd do it either... i was shopping with a gal pal who had a baby just a week apart from me. she was totally comfortable b****** in public, so when the babes were hungry, we stopped in a courtyard a fed them. great experience compared to last thansgiving with family feeling the need to hide in the bedroom for 1/2 the day, feeling loney. yuck. i remember feeling such freedom when felt i didn't have to try to go hide somewhere! makes you feel more human, imo!
