What unusual places have you nursed? - Page 2

post #21 of 123
All during my wedding reception....

While wandering around a store arguing with DH (not my best lactivist moment, but DS was really little, DH was being really annoying and we needed to buy things and get out!)
post #22 of 123
In a ghost town, on planes & in airports, on a swing at a park, at a wedding reception, walking around stores shopping, in the backseat while dd was in her rearfacing carseat, in a massage chair display at Sam's club, in a patio glider in the nursery dept at Home Depot, and my favorite, on a lawn tractor at Home Depot! (winter, it was too cold to go to the garden dept,lol)

I've done those too..... However the weirdest place I have ever nursed was during my PAP at my 6 week check up after my DD was born. The Dr. and nurse looked at me slightly funny, and just said how cute she was!

When DS was only 4 or 5 weeks old, I was sitting in my living room nursing him and someone knocked on the door. I thought it might be my neighbor; they were doing construction on their house and we had offered them the use of our bathroom while theirs were out of commission (they did the same for us when we were building our house). So I gathered DS in my arms and carefully walked to the door, keeping him latched on. When I opened it, a very surprised looking woman with a handful of Jehovah's Witness literature stammered, "Oh, ummm...you have a brand new baby...what a wonderful blessing...well, I won't keep you...I'd just like to give you these pamphlets to look at." I took the literature, thanked her, and she left quickly.

I've done the back seat of the car thing too, but DS was rear-facing. Forward-facing sounds really hard!

In the last two months (DS is now 25 mo):
Sitting on the floor of the childrens' section of a large bookstore, while playing peekaboo around the end of a display with someone else's toddler.

Standing up and holding DS (had forgotten my sling) in the middle of a crowded farmers' market while talking to a friend I hadn't seen in several years and a couple of my neighbors.

I've never felt uncomfortable NIP before, but now that DS is two - and tall for his age and verbal, requesting "na-na" in all sorts of places...I feel like I'm getting more looks from strangers who seem to think he is too old to be nursing and I'm more self-conscious about it. Recently, in a restaurant, two women were staring at me, whispering to each other, then staring again as I nursed DS at our table. This thread is helping me remember that the wonderful thing about nursing is we can do it anywhere - and there are lots of mamas out there who do! Thanks!

I forgot...

I've nursed at several funerals too...at the first one, DS was only 2 months old. It was a Catholic funeral and I felt weird nursing in the church during mass. Later I mentioned this to a friend, one of the daughters of the man who had passed away, and she replied, "Oh, don't worry...I nursed all three of mine in that church lots of times...it's what God gave us boobs for, right?"

And I also nursed DS at my six week check-up after his birth while the midwife was examining me. She came into the room and he was sort of fussy. She said, "Something in here bothers newborns - maybe it's the hum of the lights or somesuch. If he's a bf baby he'll feel much better at the breast. You can latch him on and lie down with him on top of you - here, let me help - okay, now I'll do your exam." I love that midwife for many reasons - this is just one!

Whew...didn't mean to bogart this thread...thanks for listening to my long-winded stories!

I did this too! DD wouldn't stop fussing, so I just stuck her tummy to tummy facing me and nursed. The OB looked under to start the pap and laughed because DD's feet were sticking out right above where she was going to work!

Oh, that reminds me: I've nursed while getting tattoos several times. What a tattoo has to do with a pap, I don't know, but it made me think of that.

We have nursed in so many places. I wish I had kept a journal of all of the strange places I have nursed. I would have to say that the strangest of all was at a WWE protest when my son was about 4 months old.

I have also knelt in the vestibule of a pharmacy while my son was in the stroller to nurse him so he would stop thrashing to get out of the stroller. That got me some interesting looks! Oh yes, and while walking in the grocery store with DS in the cart while I leaned over him too. Lots of good times!

I almost forgot, I too have nursed during a gyn exam too. I had to have part of my perineum cauterized when I was about 12 weeks post partum and nursed him while she did it to comfort me more than DS.

Not an unusual place

My personal fave was at a water park while floating on a raft in the lazy river ride. It was fantastic.

I nursed dd while she was having an ultrasound on her spine. My son uses his rapid stealth moves to latch on whenever he sees a bare breast. This morning I was in the tub and he leaned over for a drink. I had my eyes closed, so it kinda surprised me.

Hmmmm....on various rides in Disneyland and California Adventure.

On a tour bus in Salzburg, Austria (desperately trying to keep DD quiet so we wouldn't get kicked off the tour). All through the Mozart museum in Salzburg, no sling, just holding DD in my arms.

In a cave, while going spelunking.

I'm sure there are more...

Lactivism, actually

Pretty much everywhere I've been, and usually on the way there, too. Nursed a lot at Disney World (DD) and Disneyland (DS), on every ride imaginable, but found that rides like Pirates of the Caribbean suited both of us best.
