Wanted to say

THANK YOU! to so many of you on here! I came on here because my youngest who isnt even 2 mos wouldnt take the bottle at all. I didnt want to BF in public, but reading all your comments, I have decided to do it. We went to wal mart yesterday, Kota was hungrey. We were in the car at this time waiting for DH to come out. He had to exchange the sand we got for DD#1. Anyway while sitting there I decided WTH I will try it out. There was a guy next to us sitting in his car, but I still BF with the windows down and ppl walking by! DH came out and said WOW I am very proud of you doing this. I will also be doing it tomorrow when I go the baby shower! Thank you all so much for the support!

Congrats! I remember with my first ds I was so nervous about BFing in public we planned all trips to be under 1.5 hours just in case he got hungry so we would be home to do it, what a PITA that was.

Wow!!! That's so awesome!!! You will get more and more brave the longer you nurse. I always covered up with my DD the first few months, but now 18 months later, I don't cover up at all.

I did cover up she hated it big time. I did it outside today when I was out with my oldest but didnt cover up. We live in a trailer park so we are close to the neighbors, but he wasnt home!

Re: Wanted to say

I am so happy for you! BFing got so much easier on me when I stopped caring what other people thought.

I just wear a nursing tank now whenever I'm going out and I don't think anyone ever has any idea when I'm nursing her. I fed her in the middle of our upscale outside shopping mall yesterday... people walking all over and no one gave me a second glance. My SIL is always asking: "Are you feeding her or holding her? I can never tell!" lol
