    Default Pic I just have to share.....

    Over the weekend I went to the zoo with my family. It was such a beautiful day and I was feeling brave and look at me goLLLI.jpg

    I am so proud of myself. This was my first breastfeeding in public with no nursing cover...shoot I am not even wearing a nursing top My husband was so proud he just had to take this picture..and he sent it to his Facebook with the caption "The kids having a drink"

    Good for you!! Nice that your husband was proud and supportive of you as well. It's still hard for me to breastfeed in public with nursing cover but it's deffinetly getting easier than it was. Too bad that breastfeeding isn't accepted more....especially when it's the best thing for babies.

    what a beautiful picture! You look so happy and radiant! It's really lovely. I think you make NIP look very effortless and natural. And such beautiful kids!

    I keep telling myself that the people who stare at me or whatever the case are just misinformed rude people They probably formula fed their kids and in that case.....

    I am becoming a very pro breast mama. My advice for you...cover or not, whip it out and watch your baby, not the people who are near.

    Way to go mama! You look so relaxed and like a pro <3

    I was nursing my LO at Boo at the Zoo and was thinking about how it makes perfect sense to NIP at the zoo and it made me chuckle. There was a little girl who started to sit on the bench next to me and when her dad saw what I was doing he was all "no baby no baby no baby, come on lets go" like I had the plague. It made me giggle.

    It looks beautiful where you are! Here in Michigan it is already cold and gray outside.

    Congrats too! It is empowering to NIP. The first time I did it was in the grocery store and it just felt so good.
