public nursing (distracted baby)
I am usually home with 7mo DD (literally, we stay home most days as we're new to the area, it's humid right now, and I'm a homebody anyway). So letting DD essentially graze all day at the breast doesn't bother me.
But every now and again we have all day outings (with DH) and it is frustrating to try to make sure she is eating enough while we're out. When she was younger, I had gotten the hang of nursing in public, no cumbersome cover, just latch and carry on. But that was short-lived.
Now, everything is interesting to her, and she has even taken to standing up (a newly acquired skill) while nursing, or just grabbing a suckle or two and being done for a minute, but then coming right back looking for more. Needless to say this is not conducive to public nursing.
She doesn't tolerate any cover over her face (I wouldn't either), so I can't use that to keep distractions down.
On our last outing, I tried to retreat to the car to nurse, but then everything in the car was interesting to her (front and back seat).
Next week we are flying transatlantic and I'm wondering how to make sure she eats enough.
She does nurse to sleep often, but when we're out and about, she also doesn't want to nap, either. So that's another concern of mine for the trip.
