I don't really get out much, so don't have tons of NIP experience. I thought I would share some positive experiences I had yesterday. We had a conference for my older DSs home-based charter school. I nursed DD during the meeting no one batted an eye and the lady behind me nursed too!

Then we went to a water park where I nursed her again. No one seemed bothered. Then DH told me 2 others babies had been nursing there before me.

This is the first time IRL I have been around this many nursing moms and in such public places!!!! I am in the south, btw.

That's excellent! From the sounds of it, you seem to live in a BF-positive environment. It's good to know that the South has improved greatly in the last 20 years.

I never thought I did live in a BF-friendly place. That is why I was so surprised! We are in a small rural area, but had traveled to a bigger town 2.5hrs away, so maybe that is why.

Yes, that sounds like my experience. Here in Iowa, it's common to see mothers bf in the cities, but ff is the rule in small towns. I wish there was some way to increase the bf rate in rural areas. We are sooooo far behind.
