What unusual places have you nursed?

post #1 of 123
Thread Starter 
I've nursed on several planes, on the side of the road, in medieval garb, and in front of an elevator (by mistake), in every resturant imaginable, on a fishing boat in the middle of the atlantic and in a bird banding station. I have also nursed a bat link fixed


You?

The craziest I ever felt, and I did this repeatedly, was in the backseat of the car, with seatbelt on, nursing ds in his forward-facing carseat.

I've nursed in the back seat too. It is a bit of a stretch to reach the car seat but when you are almost home it can be a life-saver.

The craziest was while wearing a fabulous big pooffy taffeta fuschia gown in the back of a moving limo while drinking Champagne. I was a bridesmaid and the wedding party pilled into the limo after the ceremony on the way to the photo shoot. I only just wet my lips of champagne for the toast, but it was still a funny juggling act with my 2 month old. The dress was strapless so I had to just unzip and pull it down, so the bride placed her gown as a shawl over the baby to shelter from the groomsmen. It is a very special memory. *WISH* I had a picture!

i've nursed dd while going to the bathroom at home (this was in her early, helpless infant days)

i nursed her while she was sitting in the shopping cart at whole foods a few months ago. i just leaned over, gave her my breast and kept shopping.

i've done the backseat of the car thing.

At IKEA in a display room. The staff suggested I nurse in the family "room" but it was just a bathroom with a chair in it. I considered it, but honestly someone's daddy had just had a massive stinky poo in there (got that news from the toddler who opened the door when I knocked) and since I was already against the idea of nursing in a toilet, I just took myself over to the nicest display room and settled in. I later bought the same chair I nursed in - so comfortable!

I nursed in an IKEA too, walking around with LO in wrap.

Shoot, it's hard to even remember by now. I nursed at several funerals. I nursed my youngest during his baptism. Kinda freaked the pastor out, but he managed. I've nursed in front of Old Faithful, in swimming pools, in college lectures, at war protests, in the shower, while shopping. In fact, I can only think of two things I've never done while nursing: driving, and making love to my DP.

The other random place I nursed was while guest lecturing at a university.

In the second row while seeing President Clinton stump for Hillary.

At an Obama rally :. My baby's been in the presence of two presidents!!!

I've nursed in 23 countries in every public place imaginable.
buses, trains, aeroplanes, shopping malls, busy streets, while walking, with dd in a sling, with dd in a car seat... while riding a bicycle.
Yay for boobs!

Balmoral beach in Sydney AU. My then 3 1/2 year old was starting to catch a bug. He was tired and didn't want to play in the water. We were sitting just below a beautiful rotunda http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Image:06-12-14_287.jpg where a wedding was taking place. No one noticed and if they did they didn't bat an eye. It was lovely.

I nursed in a sling just about everywhere: grocery stores, malls, bathrooms (at home only).

I nursed at the Million Mom March in DC.

I nursed on planes.

I did the backseat of the car thing, too. It helps to have big boobs for that one!

My one attempt at getting DD to sleep in a crib involved, at one point, my bending over the crib, with my breast hanging down into her mouth. My back ached for hours after that one!

In the bathtub.

In my friends outdoor pool.

What can I say - my son loves the water and he loves mama milk.

We're at 7 weeks now:
In several restaurants.
Staples--we were chair shopping so extra convenient
Target--more than once, while shopping
The grocery store more than once
On the bus, during rush hour, while sitting next to a complete stranger.
While going to catch the bus.
Outside at Starbucks, and inside too.
In my college's student union
Outside the lecture hall where the exam was
Walking back from said lecture hall to the car
While I'm using the bathroom
While she's using the bathroom
While changing her diaper, folding laundry, making dinner, taking out the trash, sewing a sling, and playing D&D 4th ed--but these are all at home so not particularly impressive
And, unfortunately, 3 random parking lots during road trips

Sitting on the glass floor observation deck of the CN tower.

On the Pikes Peak Cog Railway.

At DD's 2 year Ped Checkup (or at least, the PED thought it was unusual!)

I'm sure there's others, I just can't think of them now!

on a mountain, on a beach, in a boat, on a plane , in a train, underground (howe's cavern) in the store, I think the where haven't you nursed question applies here, too!
