I'm a day late and a dollar short again
|Every single law, both state and federal, says a woman may nurse her baby and never says a WORD about being "discreet" about it.
Ahem, actually, here in Missouri, the law does say "with as much discretion as possible," or something like that.
However, I would definitely nurse at a wedding, but I also don't feel like you, OP, are doing anything wrong by deciding to take a bottle of EBM to this one event. I think it's nice that you are trying to consider everyone involved. And I'm sure you know that your baby's needs come first, and if for some reason the bottle doesn't cut it for your child (he won't take it, is distressed and needs to comfort nurse, etc.), you'd whip it out and feed in a heartbeat. I do recommend easy access clothing as your backup plan, but don't feel like a cheater or a wimp because you'd rather not NIP in this particular instance.
Whatever you decide, odds are, the bride and groom are gonna have way too many other things on their minds to care, and it's their day. Anyone else who wants to get offended gets a
in my book.
Now, since I just realized this wedding was yesterday, I guess my $.02 doesnt matter much. Oh well.
How was the wedding?
