Strangest places you've nursed

Postby ajs333 » Fri Oct 26, 2012 10:01 am

I know this has probably been a topic before, but I couldn't find it. Anyway, I had a couple of interesting ones in the past week and just thought I'd share. I nursed in a Krystal parking lot (front seat of my car) and in a skating rink (child's birthday party). Where are some of the most unusual places you've nursed?

I nurse everywhere we go, but the most unusual would be mile 10 of my first (and so far only) half marathon when DD was 6 months old.

The exam table at the gynocologist was probably the strangest. I've nursed just about anywhere I go....I've nursed on the airplane too which was kind of awkward.

Love this! You are a superstar, Momma! Maybe I'll do that if DD needs me during my half in June! :D

I've nursed a lot of different places too--probably the handicapped bathroom stall at Panera. More places should have women's lounges instead of plain bathrooms!

No place too crazy, maybe the food area of Target. But next week, I'm hoping to add nursing on an airplane to my list! :D

Airplane, basement of an American Legion Hall, various bathrooms at restaurants, restaurant booths, coat closets at various functions (seriously). I have nursed a lot of random places, sitting on the floor, crunched in the back seat of the car next to the car seat... I would not have minded nursing more right out in public, but my DS was a horrible at nursing in public. He got so fussy and pulled off and didn't like to be covered. I just wasn't comfortable nursing him with no cover up right out in the open, not that he would have gotten down to business anyway, being so easily distracted :roll:

Almost any ride or show at Disney World that allows infants! It's a Small World, Country bear jamboree, Lion King, you get the picture. :D I've nursed 2 babies for a total of 37 months so I'm sure there are other weird places but that's what comes to mind right away! My son in particular wanted to nurse constantly so I always ended up NIP when I didn't expect to.

I don't think I've nursed anywhere "strange," just the usual public places. For fun, I'll list every place I can think of:

Chiropractor's office
Walmart
Restaurants
Jo-ann Fabrics (while wearing her in a sling)
The zoo
Church
Friends' houses
While riding in the back seat of our car (I'd lean over the carseat, lol)
All kinds of parking lots
Dressing rooms
The middle of the mall

That's all I can think of right now...

My best advice if you think you'll have to nurse during is to do the race to finish, not to get a great time. I had to really mentally prepare myself for the fact that I would likely be stopping, as much as I wouldn't want to!

My son went through a phase where he hated NIP and would only nurse side lying. I seriously have unrolled a blanket at so many random places to lay down and nurse him. We were able to find parks all that summer mostly, but one time when he was about 7 months old I had to lay down with him in the back of my daughter's toddler gym class at the YMCA :/
