Shayla ~ Crunch-tastic UC mama of 3 nature kids and a moon baby
Once a man sitting next to me in a cafe adjusted the blanket I was trying to keep over ds's head.
And one time at the playground a very young mom approached me and said she was so glad to see another woman nursing in public, it made her feel not so weird.
homemaker mama to and due in March
Now bf DS who is 7 weeks.
Just last night DH, DD DS and I were out for dinner with DH's old boss.
DS got hungry. We were sitting in the bar-restaurant was full.
So as I sat on the bench seat side of the table-under a huge bright light I NIP'd.
DS kept popping off every 2-7 seconds. Finally looked at the ex-boss who was watching-said that he was going to get nipple flashes and that I was sorry (while laughing)
He laughed and said it wasn't anything he hadn't seen before.
I though for sure someone nearby would say something and I was prepared-but it went smoothly. YAAY!
I've nursed everywhere - planes, grad school class, the zoo, museums, the beach, you name it...also in lots of different regions of North America...Alaska, through Canada, ND, IA, IL, OH, IN, AZ, CA...
As the saying goes, "anytime my baby's hungry, anywhere I am!"

I have nursed in Starbucks when DH had a job there and even plopped myself right down in music store in the mall once when DD was little baby.
Nope, I never had a bad experience. I DO have three lovely moments when three very different strangers shared beautiful positive comments with me.
One of them was when I was nursing my no longer infant at the playground. A man walked by and shouted out "good for you!". I was never sure if he meant for nursing at all, nursing at the playground, or nursing a toddler at the playground, but I'll take them all!
