Re: first time breastfeeding in public
I remember feeling near panic at the thought of breastfeeding in public just because it was such a struggle just to do it in the relative calm of our own home. And, as I recall, the first few times were awkward and challenging for us. The most helpful things for me were 1) time and practice and 2) learning to nurse while wearing him.
I remember, at some point, walking down the sidewalk calmly nursing DS and suddenly remembering how impossible that had seemed, and how easy it then felt....

Those who say it can't be done should not interrupt the person doing it.
