again...my CRAZY mind is running around like a chicken with its head cut off. so today the topic is: nursing in public. this is how my mind got roaming...stay with me its connected in a few ways.
soo...i love planning trips. ESPECIALLY to disneyland. i was hoping that we could go soon but it looks like we'll just wait another year and go for dyson and i's bday seeing how they're only like 2 weeks apart. (yes i turned 25 and didnt blog about it which one day i should) anywho---so i was thinking ill probably have a newborn the next time we go and so that'll be cool cause they just kinda lay there and be good and you can take them on every ride thats not a rollercoaster which actually is alot more rides than you think. and then i remembered when we were at disneyland there were ALOT of nursing moms. of course they were fully covered but you know when you see a mom sitting on a bench on a hot day with a blanket covering her upper body, something is going on. and i'm totally cool with that. i never nursed out in public like in the middle of a restaurant or in the middle of a theme park, but i would in the car and at friends/familys houses but again everytime i had my special HOOTER HIDER.
so last sunday i was sitting in relief society, and the woman next to me had an almost 18 month old and he was playing and running around and totally being good. but then towards the end started to get a little fussy so the mom grabbed him sat down, whipped out her boob and started feeding him. NOT A BIG DEAL. but its hard to focus on anything going on when i have a naked boob (thats not my own) less than a couple of inches next to my arm. no cover, just the kid nursing away. i truly, honestly wasnt upset or mad that she did that because i understand as a nursing mom you gotta do it when its time to do it, but it got my mind thinking: is that a bad thing? it was in a room full of woman most of whom have had children. i just never have done that NOR would i feel comfortable doing that without a cover. know that my opinion is: i think its ok and i dont feel awkard about women nursing in public it just makes me think cause i know other people/husbands feel that it is.
so my thought/question is: do other woman do that? do they feel comfortable enough to nurse in super public places like a restaurant or theme park with or without a cover?
