go me!

I was really nervous about it and yesterday I went with my friend to get a tattoo and I nursed on the couch in the waiting room! Nobody seemed to notice, and I felt a lot more comfortable then I thought I would.

I'm so proud of myself.

Yep, and pretty soon you'll be whipping it out and not even care who sees! And this is coming from someone who started out feeling shy and nervous about it....

Yay! Welcome to the wonderful world of NIP!

I had heard and read about so many negative NIP experiences here and elsewhere that I thought for sure I would be chastised as soon as I latched my baby on for the first time in public. I haven't even gotten one cross look from anyone yet, and we've been NIP for over 7 months! And I live in the deep South, which makes that fact even more surprising!
