Spreading the NIP love

I was so proud of myself today, I had to share it with you all. My dh, my 6 yo dd and I (carrying my ds in my BH MT) were shopping at Target today. When I took my dd to the bathroom the ds started acting hungry so I began to feed him while in the carrier. Well the dd didnt want to hang out in the Target bathroom any longer than she had to so she said, "Why can't you feed him walking around the store?". "You are right", I said, "Why can't I feed him while walking around the store! ". So I BF my ds in his carrier and shopped and never missed a beat. Why had'nt I done that before?? I guess sometimes it takes a 6 yo to give you the perspective you need to feel comfortable doing one of the most natural things of all.

Yay for DD!!! I just recently got the hang of nursing in my MT, so I can't wait to try it in public!

Yeah, I was never able to bf in a carrier either, but in my case my boobies are too small (hard for dd to find, LOL!)

Re: Spreading the NIP love

yay for you!! When my kids were tiny (a few months old) I often nursed them in the sling as I did my shopping. Kept them happy, and I didn't miss a "shopping" beat!
