Just have to share:


Last week I was with DH2 (7 weeks) at an outdoor market and he woke from his nap, and starting getting restless in the mei-tai. An older woman next to me commented that he looked hungry and I should give him something to eat (i.e. a bottle). I told her that he's breastfed, and she made this dramatic gesture of fascinated surprise. Then she pointed to a step and encouraged me to feed him.


I was a little bemused, but after a moment sat down and started to nurse. Right away, the owner of the shop encouraged me to use her chair, so I sat down and immediately the older woman called all of her grandchildren (and the rest of the children in the shop around) to come see this adorable baby (nursing).


Subsequently, a few women looking at clothes nearby looked on fondly and said how sweet, etc. NO raised eyebrows, NO dirty looks--breasfeeding was seen as sort of a novelty, but also natural-normal.


I've NIP with my two other LO's and have had all kinds of experiences but this was one to share and really celebrate!
