In a helicoptor over the Grand Canyon (well and while trying to climb in and while the pilot buckled me b/c my hands were full)
In an oxygen tent in the hospital
With ds in a sling covered by a poncho while working... this one customer says "oh my, what kind of shirt is that!" she thought it was some fashio statement

On the subway

I gotta try the nursing with babein the car seat thing though, it could save us so much grief.

All the usual (according to this thread, isn't that cool!) places; stores, restaurants, planes, trains and automobiles, ren faires and other outdoor shows, playgrounds and parks, bike paths and hiking trails, the zoo, botanical gardens and riparian institute, swimming pools, lakes and splash parks, churches, libraries, museums and meeting halls, a wild west town, the Grand Canyon, in at least 18 states (still hoping to get abroad) and beaches on both coasts. The most unusual place - the bucket of an excavator!

The funniest had to be at Sears...... in the tool section. Gosh grown men have a hard time talking to me, when Emma is latched on. ;-)

Just about everywhere I've been in the past (almost) 10 years!!!

More recently: Disney World ... in the treehouse, on the flying carpets, on Pirates of the Carribbean ride...on just about every ride we went on - baby was 9 weeks old!!! I also nursed Alia and her 3 year old brother in the pool at the Pop Century resort.

I've nursed while in labor in a hospital.

I nursed three children in a row during our "baptism interview" with our pastor when my 3 year old was a newborn ... so newborn, big sister (age 3.5) and big brother (age 5)!!!

I've nursed in a car, van, plane, train, trolley, subway, horse-drawn hayride, tractor-drawn hayride, boat ... in the birth pool, in the shower, in a bath, in a lake, in a river, in the ocean, in a swimming pool, in a kiddie pool ...

I've nursed at the dentist while getting a filling.

I've nursed while interviewing for a job (got the job).

Speaking of nursing - my baby and my 3 year old are asking to nurse and I dont' feel like tnak, so off I go!!!

I've done the backseat/car seat thing, too.

Let's see...where *haven't* I nursed? About a thousand restaurants, a library, a car wash, a boat in the middle of the lake, the beach, my porch, several hospitals and doctors' offices. There are more, I'm sure.

My inlaws wouldn't come into the living room when I was feeding in there. They all stood outside in the hallway until babe was done.

That's so hilarious!
With DS1 my MIL stationed a chair upstairs for me to nurse in her bedroom but I just carried on feeding downstairs and everyone got very good at reading the newspaper conspicuously!

LOL!

When i was still in hospital, and was getting ready to nurse dd while my inlaws were there, my FIL always pretty much fell over himself trying to get out of the room
His usual excuse was "Oh i've an awful taste in my mouth, I'm going to the cafetaria to get something to eat" LOL ?!

But actually I appreciated that he left - those first days, it was so painful to nurse and i was still very much getting used to it so I really liked the privacy. My MIL always just stayed, I would have preferred if she left too actually.

But I'm totally getting off topic here...

I don't have any new unusual places to add, but I did do the car seat thing again. Not very comfortable but I'm getting used to it

This is what it would sound like if Dr. Seuss was breastfeeding!

In a car: this happened several times when I was in the backseat of the car, with seat belt on, and Abigail was in her car seat.
In the bathroom while I was using the toilet.
While changing her diaper, folding laundry and cooking dinner.
Hospital exam room while getting the post delivery exam.
In the dentist's office while getting a dental exam.
In costco sitting on a pile of goods.


I don't get out much, though. If I did, my list would be much longer.
