So, I have a couple questions for all you CLWers, just out of curiosity...
At what age did you stop NIP?
How many people know that you're nursing your older nursling?
For me I stopped NIP when she was closer to 2. I just started making it an "at home" thing since I knew I would start feeling uncomfortable in public as sometimes I don't want to put up with a lot of crap.
: This has never been a real issue. We nurse in people's homes that know we breastfeed but of course now that she's 3 she'd rather be doing all kinds of fun things while we're out instead of nursing anyway. However we were at a birthday party at our neighbor's the other day and she was very tired and asked for "mai mai." (Note, this neighbor was hiding in the house to nurse her 2 week old
) and I said, "Ok, are you getting tired and need to go home for mai mai?" and she said (with some attitude), "No, I just want mai mai at the party!" :LOL She ended up playing more and when I finally got her to come home I nursed her. It was pretty cute though.
I wish I had the guts to NIP w/her. I'm just not that brave.
The people who know I'm still nursing her are my dh (of course
), my sisters and parents (although some may get weird about it soon), my aunt, uncle and cousins (all way supportive), and a few selected friends - (oh and all of you!
). I nurse her in the homes of all these people as well.
