    Default Mistaken for a HOTDOG! (ouch)

    We were at a picnic today with another ~25 families. For the first time while out amongst other people, DS wanted to nurse. (I think the kids are normally too distracted by eveyone around them to nurse.) We were doing fine until DD decided she wanted to nurse, too. If I hadn't been sitting under the shelter at a picnic table this wouldn't have been an issue. However, it's a wee bit awkward to arrange two 27 month olds while facing a table, especially with one child already latched on. Anyway, while doing this, DS must have remembered he had a piece of a hotdog in his hand and went to take a bite. AaaaaAAAAACK! I got chomped! He'd forgotten to unlatch first.

    Took a few moments to collect myself. I do not "hide" when I NIP, but I also don't advertise that I am nursing. The shriek (mine) did not help, but we got through it. Am guessing it was the first time that most had seen someone nursing a toddler -- err, two of them at once, and with the abrupt interuption, they may have seen a little more than they'd bargained for.

    Breastfeeding is an instinctual and natural act, but it is also an art that is learned day by day.
