I've never posted to this particular forum, but something has been on my mind. I guess I would consider myself a lactivist, but I don't actually nurse. I'm an EPer for a former preemie, and plan to continue at least until March, when she will be one year adjusted age. I have a question about how you folks feel the nursing in public laws and/or attitudes should apply to EPing.
I pump in my car on the way to/from work because I have a long commute and this allows me to spend more time in bed in the morning and with my baby in the evening. I don't know many more places that I would be comfortable pumping in public. I was thinking more of like in the women's restroom/lounge at airports, in my car at the zoo, things like that. Anywhere that others could actually see me pumping, so not in the stall, I guess.
What do you think my response should be if anyone has problems with the sight of a woman pumping? I've actually had people admit discomfort even seeing the milk (as I'm transferring it from my personal fridge to a cooler) or hearing the pump without seeing the process. Do you think the nursing in public law applies to me, in the remote chance I get pulled over during my commute pumping session?
Thanks for any thoughts.
