uhhhhhh not going in public?
Actually I have a lot LESS worries about NIP than I do handleing a 2 yo and a new born
Honestly though, the Ped office is the only place we've been -- DH went with us -- 2 week and 2 year appt at the same time.
We are just home. Again, more worried about chaseing a 2 yo than the boobs
|I went to a family party where my aunt told me I should nurse in another room because it might make people uncomfortable and the kids might ask what was going on. I didn't like that either.
No one has EVER had the BALLS to try to say something like this to me ... but turst me ... if they did I would nurse in front of them every single chance i got for the next 3 years, and i would show as much boob as possible
.............i am not one you want to f-with
I will nurse a child who is NOT cueing to be fed if i think there is the slightest hint that someone doesn't WANT me to do it
Honestly, I would confront he Aunt, tell her to deal or she can leave, she is not going to dictate how you parent and if you careing for your child is a prblem for her, she can remove herself. I had to tell BIL and SIL that when Theo was 8 months old ... BIL was complaing about everything, i final said "F he is our child, we will parent him, he come before anything and everything else, yo are an adultif you don't like it youa re free to not be here"
I have nurseing, in or out of a sling, everywhere -- evey church service, wedding, the Freedom Trail in Boston, planes, trains........
1. you will feel better with more pratice
2. you just gotta get an attidue that says "don't get me started"
............ I think a lot of it ---NOT all, a lot ---- is how you present yourself / carry yourself. do people feel thay can bully you? in 2 year of nurseing I have had NO negitive comments, none. I think it is almost a kin to looking like a victim or not ... bullys know who they can and can not approcah ....
I remember when i had to sit to nurse Theo, then one day finally got the groove and nursed walking around a store --
it just takes time
I agree with Kimmy -- you got to a point you are so used to boobs hanging out, you don't notice when they are out for a visit without a baby attached
Happnes to us all ...
Personally I am waiting with joy for my first TN expereince with my 2 yo
