    Default My apartment manager assumed that I BF. :)

    So I stopped by the apartment office yesterday to drop off some mail and my rent check and also to check on a minor maintenance issue that's been delayed in being taken care of.

    DD was in a sling with me, a Maya Wrap. The front girl was on the phone but the manager came out of her of her office (right as I was putting my mail in the little box and nearly scared me half to death, lol) and said hi. She asked how old DD was and I told her that she was going to be 1 next week. Then she started gushing over my sling and asked if it was "one of those Mayan ones" and said that she has one. She was feeling of the tail and asked if I use the tail to cover up while I feed her. Well obviously she thinks I still breastfeed since why would a bottle baby need a cover, right? lol.

    But the neat thing about this story is that she didn't even bat an eye, she just assumed that's what I was still doing, even w/ DD as "old" as she is. Anyway I was excited and wanted to share with you all.

    Gotta love support like that! So many people assume the opposite, this is very refreshing!!

    Super cool!

    Reminds me of a comment from Thanksgiving I was going to share with y'all. At a family get-together, my aunt doesn't say "Are you still breastfeeding?!" She says "You ARE still breastfeeding, right?!"" as if it is completely expected.
