What unusual places have you nursed? - Page 6

post #101 of 123
Umm not many of mine are weird..
I did nurse at Wing House here in Orlando..lol! It is pretty much just like Hooters ( DD # 1)
My 2 week old baby girl was just nursed her in her older sister's ball pit today. Big sis wanted to play, lil sis wanted to nurse. My mommy took pictures to send the family:

Fun thread! I've nursed pretty much everywhere. My favs are on a beach in Mexico listening to a Mariachi band and at a temple here in Hong Kong. Hopefully I get to nurse her on the Great Wall. Just seems like a cool place to do it.

Funny NIP story. I was nursing at an outdoor market and DD was covered up from the sun and this group of teenagers moved the cover to see the baby. She popped off, gave them a big smile then went right back to nursing. The poor guys looked like they were about to have a stroke.

Pretty much anywhere we were. Walking around Home Dept, Meijer, at the park. I nursed ds on a putt putt course while we were on vacation.

I have a new one that I've been meaning to post here

Well it's from last xmas so not really "new" anymore.
My inlaws were over for a visit and we were all at the xmas market here on the main square in our city - it's super super busy with tourists etc. Literally you have to kind of push people out of the way in order to be able to move!

Anyway, there's a McDonalds on the square and I went in there to change dd's diaper, and then she started fussing and was clearly hungry, getting more and more upset.

The McD was superduper busy too, long lines of people waiting to order etc and I suddenly saw people leave from their table so I went to sit down to feed dd.

The table was at the window though, which meant that all people in the queue, all people sitting around us, and a whoooole lot of people outside could se me definitely nursing in PUBLIC...

But hey, baby was hungry...

I hope these are new ones:

On top of a really high sand dune called Mt. Baldy in Indiana on Lake Michigan at sunset

At parades

In a tent

College classes

In a car accident, in 1980 before car seat laws. We hit another car going 60mph and I held him. All he had was a small cut with a few stitches on his forehead. I had facial, teeth injuries, and small cuts on my breast. If he had been in his car seat he may have died. We had a good car seat but my seat back broke and smashed into the car seat. My husband wasn't hurt. We were very lucky.

I have nursed in all kinds of places, but this might be a new one for this thread:

In Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris.

While doing a walk through viewing for a condo we were going to buy, while being filmed for a 'home staging' show that happened to be filming there at the time. I'm new at the mama thing, so hopefully I'll have lots more as time goes by!

Hah! I've nursed those places, but I didn't post.

Thing is, I don't consider any of these places/situations weird, odd, or strange . . . except for the marathon/minimarathon.

Today I nursed all over the Philly Zoo. I consider nursing so normal that I don't really think about all the places I've nursed. I mean, there are some interesting and beautiful places I've nursed. Random spots along the AT (no, I'm not a thru hiker. Can't imagine doing that with a nursling!) . . . riding the bus with a reckless driver . . . in the red room at the Edgar Allen Poe house in Philly . . . but still, I'm just feeding a child. Seems totally normal.

Mt. Baldy nursing was probably more annoying. Sand gets everywhere.

In a small town hair salon with curlers in my hair prepping and preening under a tonne of hair goop for a friend's wedding.

In the back of the car, leaning over the carseat, sitting with the ignition off in line waiting our turn to exit a crowded Winnipeg Folk Fest parking field.

In a parka, before I discovered the intricacies of NIP with winter babywearing. Cold. Really cold.

I tandem nursed at the side of an ultimate frisbee field, coming off between points to nurse.

One night after ultimate (and this isn't a bizarre place - we were in our nursing rocker) DS looked up at me and said "the milk is nice and warm tonight" lol since I'd had such a great workout and cycle home!

The Supreme Court and inside of Fort Sumter stand out the most.

A dairy farm. I took pics nursing by the sign. Oddly enough, its where dh proposed (not the same day as the pic was taken!) He ended up proposing there because his plan was a general "some place with good view of sunset" and we were on a 5 hour drive. Come sunset, he pulled off the freeway to look for a place with a view, and the dairy farm had a nice grassy field (umm, separate from the cow field, lol. They also sold ice cream but the stand was closed by the time we got there) where we could lay down and watch. And, obviously, a perfect view!

How about the shark tunnel at the NJ State Adventure Aquarium in Camden? :

I guess that's kinda odd. It was rather surreal.

I guess the oddest for me would be in a pedicab driving around downtown Savannah when we were on vacation in November. The pedicab driver had no idea I was doing it.

Fun!

during my friends wedding, during new member class at church (where a jr high girl tried to help me - she came up and said she can take him to play, the look on her face when I said that he was eating was PRICELESS), restaurants, a Target changing room (during the early days before I had mastered NIP), a Babies R Us family room (yuck...) work, the zoo.

Today I nursed in front of the giant window in the largest aquarium in the world. At least that's what the GA Aquarium claims. It was a great place to nurse. Dim lights, lots of floor space in big steps to sit on, awesome view. My overstimulated DD was able to drop off for a nap while I listened to the tour guide guy talk about whale sharks and manna rays.

I did get the stank eye from a mom feeding her 5-6 month old from a jar of baby food, but I just smiled at her. She rolled her eyes at me, oh well.
