    Default BF IS easier than FF!

    I'm so proud of myself and wanted to post on here bc only you ladies would understand...

    I went to the store last night with my DH, DS's and DD and put my DD in her Moby wrap as usual. She got hungry and I was able to successfully nurse her without undoing to wrap or making both of us uncomfortable sitting in a not very BF friendly bench in Walmart. It feels SO liberating to be able to nurse on the go like that. I was actually for once hoping she would have nursed for longer rather than wanting her to hurry up when we're in public because I felt like I was doing it with such ease and that it might actually make another mom think about nursing their baby. People did give me weird looks though.. and a group of three guys actually left the aisle when they realized what I was doing I told my DH and he said that can ___ off if they want to say anything.

    Yay!

    11/02/10 7lbs14oz BF , supplemented 3oz formula/day for first 3 months due to supply issues. Now she's on all mommy's milk!

    And by proudly BFing in public, you're helping us get closer to a world where three guys in the aisle at Walmart won't think twice about a BFing woman on a bench.
    DS#1: Aidan, born 1/7/11 - 9 lbs. 5 oz. 22 in. (a difficult induced labor), BFed for 2.5 years after a VERY rocky start (indebted to LLL for the support)!
    DS#2: Amiel, born 12/11/13 - 9lbs, 22 in., 8 days "late," spontaneously, naturally & unmedicated after resisting pressure to induce.

    Way to go....... I never worked up enough courage to BF in public. I'm one of the girls who make sure my LO is fed before I leave the house because I don't have the nerve to try it in public. to you tho!
