Funny breastfeeding stories?

After reading the discrimination post with a mixture of horror and delight (at what you ladies did!) I thought it might be nice to post some funny or supportive stories.

I had my first DD in Turkey were at 95% of women bf. I had never been around women who breastfed until we moved there and probably would never have even thought to do it before. When DD was a few weeks old some ladies came to over to visit. One brought her 4 and 5 year old sons. When DD started nursing (under a blanket because I was terribly shy) the mom came over and asked if her sons could watch so that they would learn and feel comfortable. I was really embarrsed but later I realized how cool it was. Espically with a sister who didn't want her son "to get the wrong idea". When DD was a bit older I had a lady in McDonald's pull off the blanket and tell me I shouldn't be hiding what I was doing because people need to see. Remember this is a very conservative Muslim country!

With DD two we were here in Germany when in the bookstore on post a Japanese lady came up and asked to watch me nurse. She ooed and awed and said, "There is nothing more beautiful than watching a baby breastfeed."

Maybe if we had commercials of women breasfeeding instead of washing cars in bikinis Americans would be more positive about it to.

Flashing the Family

My brother was in town for thanksgiving this year, and was video taping everything, since he doesn't have any kids and misses his nieces and nephews. DS asks to nurse in this sweet little voice "Ning-a-Ning-a-Ning-a-Ning" and my brother wanted to get it on tape. So ds was hungry and I was going to go into the back room to nurse him (HE won't eat in a busy room - I would have no problem with it, but he is too distractable).

So, with the film running, I asked ds what he wanted. He got this HUGE grin, and said "Ning-a-Ning-a-Ning-a-Ning!" and grabbed the bottom of my shirt and lifted it ALL the way up!!! My poor dad (super conservative) just about died of embarrasment! Everyone else was cracking up and ds got SOOO offended that he was being laughed at, his little face just crumpled up. I felt so bad for him, but I couldn't stop laughing. I had to leave the room to get him calmed back down.

Drowning the Baby

Another time, I was nursing at my parents house in the living room and I was SUPER full because ds hadn't nursed for a while. When my milk let down, he pulled off because he was being flooded. Then my milk squirted, just like a water fountain, right into his open mouth while he lay there absolutely shocked. He didn't know whether to drink up or cry because the mean attack nursies wouldn't let him get away. My mom saw what was happening, and we both started laughing super hard, and of course, poor ds was just heartbroken (thought we were laughing at him again).

Then my dad walked in the room and wanted to know what was so funny.

Re: Funny breastfeeding stories?

One time when Sam was about 18 months old, he was wrestling with his dad and pulled up dad's shirt. He saw my dh chest and looked at me funny. I was being silly and teased him, "nurse Daddy". He looked at all the hair and thought of the worst word he knew......"POOP!" he said

Re: Funny breastfeeding stories?

Ok this one's sortof lame but it was funny to me. lol

Before I was pregnant, I'd read online about women who said that they "squirted across the room." I wondered if I would be one of those women. One day, I was laying down feeding DD in bed, and DH was there too and we were both still awake and talking. Usually I feed w/ just one breast uncovered, but for some reason this time it was easier to have them both exposed. I felt a letdown coming on so I said to DH "Watch, I'll squirt it across the room," figuring that if I could squirt at all, then letdown would definitely be the time. Well, I didn't squirt. I went drip...drip...drip. lol. I was so sad.

But then a few days later I was walking while nursing DD and she popped off briefly. I looked down and there was a teensy little stream squirting out. It wasn't really "across the room" but it was satisfying to me to finally be able to "squirt". lol. Then once I got over it I had to hurry and get DD latched back on before I got milk everywhere. :P
