I niped to day in Chili pepper. Which here in yuma AZ. Is a locally owned and opperated mexican restaurant famous for there bean and cheese burritos. And some major bomb salsa. Anyways it was me,my 2 kids. My sister and her son. And nursed my hungry lil man in the middle of the dinning room . I realized that when iam nursing even at home i don't really look around at other people. So i guess i could careless if someone saw or what they thought. But this place is always packed at lunch. So iam sure i was seen. Next week park and library. ~ Renae
I think this might be a little bit late, but I did NIP at the Knoxville Zoo, as well as Knoxville Center Mall in the last week! They weren't technically in November, since I hadn't realized that the goal was for November at the time! I nursed as I walked during Boo at the Zoo, and I don't even think anyone noticed, though walking and nursing is getting more difficult as he gets bigger! At Knoxville Center Mall, I nursed in several locations, and the picture included is from the food court. I got a couple of looks from a few teenage boys who were sitting a table away from us, but they didn't seem too bothered by it. I did use a cover this time, because I was wearing my Halloween costume and I did not feel comfortable exposing my entire breast. All in all, both experiences were positive for me! ~ Rachel
I have a 10 month old boy, and we nurse in public all the time. I have never had anyone say anything negative to me or give me funny looks. Servers in restaurants have always been very professional while waiting on my table if I was NIP'ing, never once even paying any attention to it. Most of the time I don't even think anyone notices. I don't use a cover, though I did for the first 3 months. I have NIP'ed in rural VT, Boston, around CT, several places in MT, all around WA and mostly in Seattle. I NIP'd today at Cal Anderson Park in Seattle with my friends Rachelle and Juan. Rachelle was nursing her 5 month old girl. Juan was just hanging out. We saw 2 other moms nursing in the park separately, both with groups of friends and both using covers. I plan on NIP'ing several days each week in November, mostly around Capitol Hill in Seattle. I'll be sure to get pics next time. Rachelle and I are hanging out again Tuesday, so I'll try to get a pic of the 2 of us. ~Audrey
Hi, I am Christi. I am the mom of 3 little girls ages 3 and under. I breastfed all of them in public whenever they needed. I am currently breastfeeding my youngest who is 5 months old. I am committed to breastfeeding her at the local library on Tuesday November 8.
Hi! I'd love to help! My name is Emily and my son, Zac, is 5 months old. My mother didn't nurse me because I'm adopted, but I knew nursing was for me the minute my tiny son latched! I plan to nurse in public without a cover, but I will nurse discretely and with confidence! I will nurse at HEB on Palm Valley in Round Rock, Texas and at Lakeline mall in Cedar Park, Texas. I'm excited to let you know how it went! ~Emily & Zac
Here are my goals for the next two weeks, since I'm late! My name is Jessica and I have an 11 month old daughter-she'll be one on Nov 16!!! We live in metro Detroit, MI. I have my annual ob gyn appointment on Tuesday, Nov 8. I plan on nursing in the waiting room, most likely without a cover. Maybe some mammas to be will see me and see that nursing (especially in public) is normal and wonderful. Maybe I could help them make up their minds to try breastfeeding. :)
Week of Nov 13-18. My husband's family goes on a trip to Frankenmuth, MI every year the weekend before Thanksgiving. I plan to nurse all over that town all weekend! I may use a cover if I'm outside and its chilly or especially crowded.
