This afternoon I NIP'd at Jiffy Lube while waiting for my car's oil change.<br><br>
Just thought I'd share. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/thumb.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="thumbs up"><br><br>
Have you ever nursed somewhere that you wouldn't normally?

I nursed at Mighty Muffler once, kinda like Jiffy Lube, while we were getting our snow tires taken off.<br><br>
There are very few places that I ever thought I would nurse, to be honest, but it turns out I'm a bit of a lactivist, which I never expected I would be! I've nursed pretty much everywhere--parks, hospitals, restaurants, fancy ones and fast food ones, garages, planes, airports, buses, pools, churches, daycares, libraries (lots and lots of libraries! After all, I am a librarian!), malls, bookstores, clothing stores, Walmart, oh I could go on!<br><br>
Did you get any reaction at Jiffy Lube?<br><br>

Weirdly I was nursing my baby while leaving the hospital yesterday bringing my newborn home and I got weird looks on my way out (though not in the birthing center thankfully)... sheesh... felt that was odd!

I pretty much nurse everywhere. I nurse DS in the sling while walking through the food market sometimes, and I even nursed in the chair while getting my hair done.<br><br>
Good for you, mama for NIP!

I've nurse while grocery shopping before. I'll pretty much nurse anywhere (except the bathroom) if my baby is hungry.

I made a special effort to nurse infront of the capitol when we were in DC. I actually made the rounds and nursed in front of all the monuments too, and got pics of them all :LOL

I nursed DS in the lobby of the Atlanta courthouse <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin"> No eyebrows were raised and people even talked to me- asking how old he is, saying he's cute, etc <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/thumb.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="thumbs up">

Hee hee....I've nursed at "Jiffy Boob" too!!! Either they didn't notice or they were too horrified to say anything.<br><br>
Yep, like many of you, I've nursed in all kinds of places as well. Funny how you don't think about it too much and therefore can't remember any good places to talk about.<br><br>
I am starting to feel a bit self-conscious re NIP now that DD is over 2, tho. I also recently colored my hair one of those bright punky colors, so that must REALLY offend people!!!!!! "Look at the freaky lady with the flamin' red hair NURSING A TODDLER"!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I don't know that htere is anywhere I wouldn't normally nurse, but I did nurse in a Uhaul center recently. And of course, I have nursed while grocery shopping....I had to point to things so DH could put them in the cart!!<br><br>
ETA: How could I forget...I nursed DD2 and three years later DS2 on Main St at the largest one night Bike Night on the east coast...not one Biker looked at me funny or said anything!!<br><br>

I'm going to try NIP'ing at Valvoline now! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/wink1.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="wink1"><br><br>
I nursed ds at the Saturn dealership the other night - one of those 'new owner workshop' things. Well, midway through ds' nursing, the guy running hte workshop announces that now we're going to move to a different part of the building - 'all of us except two that is, we're having a little late dinner over here.' So even if no one else had noticed, they all did then. :LOL It was nice, though, because he was a slightly older guy, around the age of the older women that always glare at me, but he obviously had no problem with it.

Awww that is so sweet! I love it when a man refers to nursing in a non-offended, non-deragatory way. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/love.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="love"><br><br>
Linz- I can't believe you got weird looks at the hospital. Well, I can but... sheesh. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/eyesroll.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="roll"> You're taking away business from them by bf, ya know. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/nono.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="nono"> J/K

True. It seems women are the ones that have the problem with it most of the time. They actually seem to take it as a personal attack. Men never seem to notice when I nip. Only women seem to do a double take. Yet people are uncomfortable with it due to the "sexual nature" of the body part in use? If men are the ones not noticing, then how is it a problem? NOT that I think it is one to start with. The problem to me, starts with the people who see it as such.

I've nursed at the library, while walking through target, barnes and noble, whole foods, costco, and our local jiffy lube too! There's other places, but they were a little more normal. :LOL

I've only NIP while walking around the Phoenix Zoo and at Denny's. But I felt proud of myself both times! hehe <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin">

Well, I did nurse in a bathroom once.<br><br>
It was just me and dd on a roadtrip late at night, I had horrible diarrhea and she wanted to touch everything in the stall, a not very clean pit toilet. So I distracted her by nursing.<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin"><br><br>
And then there was the time ds1 was potty learning and ds2 was on a feeding marathon and ds1 needed to be wiped....you get the picture.<br><br>
Now that I think about it, I nurse in MY OWN bathrooms all the time, of my free will.<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin"><br><br><br>
I have felt uncomfortable nursing in truck stops, but I do it anyway. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin"> I think I feel uncomfortable because of all the sex symbols on everything, aka playboy bunnys.

When DD was 3 weeks old we attended a wedding, and I nursed in a restroom seating area at the church. At the time I wasn't yet comfortable NIP, so I nursed her while sitting on the couch. Now I NIP almost anywhere, as long as we can sit down.
