I thought this conversation on breastfeeding on the road was really interesting. For many, breastfeeding does make travel easier...plus, it's so neat to nurse in new and unusual places. ;)
I thought it would be SO FUN to put together some photos of breastfeeding while traveling--whether to a destination close to home or across the world (or in transit!). Pics of breastfeeding while out and about in your neighborhood are welcome too!
Post your breastfeeding travel pics and if we get enough I'll turn them into an awesome slideshow to inspire other moms on their summer travels!

Here are a few pics our members have submitted in the past:
taking a break to breastfeed in Singapore. I know it seems gross over top of this water way but it seemed like the best seat as one side was elevated.
This was on the same trip to Singapore and Australia from our home in Vancouver, Canada. We were on some beach South of Perth. Previous to this shot we were watching the manta rays swim around an abandoned dock. What an adventure!!!! Can't say enough about traveling when you child is only breastfeeding. We hadn't a stroller but two types of baby carriers with us. Highly recommend traveling with 6 month olds!
I love this!!! I can't wait to do it all myself anywhere and everywhere!!!!!
wife to an AMAZING dude and mommy to an awesome 18 month old boy and another little nugget due 8/2015
I nursed everywhere, airplanes, Disney, vacation, EVERYWHERE...three kids over 14 years, no. 4 is coming in September. This is me 2006 nursing a six month old Josephine on Bourbon Street in New Orleans. It was a year after Hurricane Katrina on vacation and it was pretty empty. I was the only one with my boobs out and I didn't get any pearls :-)
