The other day I was recalling one of my "most embarassing" breastfeeding experiences. When Gray was just a newborn, hubby and I were at a wedding in a very large, old Catholic church. During the ceremony I needed to feed the baby, and since you could hear every little rustle or shoe click in that place, I thought I should take him in the back just in case he made too much noise. I walked into the first open room I found with a chair, sat down, and began nursing right away. I looked up, and to my horror- I was in the confessional! Now, I am not Catholic and have only seen these things in the movies, but I knew what it was and was afraid I would get thrown out of there if someone found out! I hopped up so quickly and searched for a less sacrilegious nursing area. When I got back to my seat I tried to whisper to hubby what had happened, but I got the church giggles and was laughing too hard! (This story originally published June 29, 2006)
Since having Ivy some of the wildest places I've nursed her is in the sling in the dentist's chair, sitting in the Star Wars aisle at Target, and while getting my hair colored, cut, and styled. I nursed Gray in the sling everywhere- even once while trying on jeans at the Gap!
See this post I wrote a while back for tips on how to breastfeed while babywearing.
What's your most embarrassing nursing moment or the strangest place you've nursed or wore your baby in the sling?
