I did it!!! Kaius is 5 weeks old now, and we EBF. I finally finally got up the nerve to feed him in public. I'm afraid I was a little nervous and fumbled enough that I'm sure plenty of people WERE able to see something, but I still did it!!

I just wanted to brag :-)

Good for you!

I just did it yesterday for the first time too! I was kind of a chicken though, and went to the empty bar area of the restaurant to get him latched on before going back to the table. :

That's great!!! Congratulations to you both!!

I can't seem to get the hang of it. I succeeded once. Then I tried another time in a restaurant, but DS didn't like being covered up while I tried to get him latched on. Maybe I should practice at home...

: Yea! It's exciting, isn't it?
I still remember my first NIP - out to dinner at a great Indian restaurant on the water in Fell's Pt (cool part of Baltimore.) I think DS was around 5 weeks & I'd worn him in my Gypsy Mama Bali Breeze wrap, then had the wrap sorta draped over him as a nice cover. It's so exhilarting to do it & realize not everyone is staring at you anyway. I guess I sorta felt like, "Huh, IT WORKS! I can do this!'

It was August & after dinner, we changed DS' diaper on a bench in the square & joked he was the only naked boy in Fell's PT.

congrats!

I have NIP a few times. However, it was at Disney and we were on rides. I chose rides that were dark or that there weren't many people.

Usually, I make sure he is fed before we go anywhere. When he was younger, I fed him several times in the car thanks to my MIL (don't get me started). She made me nervous about NIP.

My "first time" was at the pediatrician's office. I was nervous, but I did it! That was 10-1/2 years ago. LOL. It gets so so so much easier.

Keep it up--and congrats to all of you new nursers. :
