    I haven't tried NIP except for an ORV park where there weren't a lot of people. We travelled to Seattle a couple weeks ago and I just nursed in the air conditioned car, but I know I'm going to have to NIP more publicly soon.
    So if a state doesn't have this can you get a ticket or arrested for NIP?? Thats crazy!

    ???? ladies - Does any of your LO's have a firm preference? What I mean is Emily loves to nurse when the tatas are alttle hard. If they are super squishy I might as well pump b/c all she will do is fuss and pull off!

    Maybe that's why Desi pulls off when they're squishy! But I don't really know because she sometimes pulls off when they're hard as well... She also HATES being hot. We had a couple of really hot days, and she was just super miserable! She's doing pretty well otherwise, but lately she wants to cluster feed from 7-11~ She'd stay on the whole time if I let her! My left nip is a little sore, but I'm not sure why. The right one is fine... Pumping's getting old, but I'm determined to give Desi breast milk until she's at least 6 months. And then I'll be determined to give it to her until she's a year! I refuse to stop.

    I haven't noticed any nasty looks while NIP. But maybe I'm just not seeing them. The people I have seen realize that I'm nursing just smile in a friendly manner. Maybe it's just the northeast!

    Violet likes them more hard too. Even when they've been engorged she feeds best. It's funny how differant she and Ruby are.

    Anyone's LO making sucking noises while they're eating? Basically Vi is de-latching almost every suck (especially when they're squishy) and I'm not sure why. I wonder if she needs to have that thing above her gums under her lip cut??? Her dad did so maybe that's it. I've heard women nursing babies like this usually have lots of pain while nursing but I don't even think I have any feeling anymore! LOL Any one have babies with this????

    oh yes girl!! G is so loud and breaks her suck every time. PPl always comment what a loud eater she is. My pedi said she wasn't tongue tied and some babies just suck this way...but man it still hurts!! I have gotten around having terrible sore nips by giving her a couple bottles of EBM otherwise my nips cant take it. They are so red as it is!

    My LO also hates nursing when Shes hot, And She just sweats like crazy laying against my arms, But I just keep a fan right by us, And turn it on her, And she loves it, So I reccomend that, Just turn the fan facing right on them.

    My little one has also grabbed The side or underside of the boob and it hurts!!!!

    Does anyone else find it really painful when your milk lets down?? I hate the feeling so much.

    And I must say I am also really suprised you guys get so many dirty looks, I have only really NIP a couple of times, I will pump a bottle and bring it depending on where I'm going, But I have nursed at the beach many times, And The park, And I have never had one dirty look, At least not that I noticed I guess, I just find Everyone looks a way really fast once they realize what your doing, Which I would look away quickly also, cause I dont want a nursing mommy to think I'm staring at her.

    HOLY CRAP! That's nearly what I get ALL DAY from pumping and I just got it in one session.

    Guess that oatmeal and fenugreek is finally working!

    YAY!!!!

    Now...If I can get what I usually get for the rest of the day, I will have several extra bags to freeze!!
    WOOT WOOT. That's awesome!

    Glad I'm not the only one! It's definately not my fav thing she does!! I've tried every single thing I can think of to get her to stop, but I guess you're right - some babies are just like that.

    Letdown is quite painful for me most of the time. Ugh.

    Question: (sorry if this was addressed earlier in the thread - I haven't read through the entire thread)

    What vitamins are all the BF Momma's taking??? Are you still taking your prenatal? Anything else? Just curious!


    Edited to add: Anne good idea having this stickied!

    I am just going to jump in from this point since I am so late on it

    Bonnie...Yes I have painful letdown and I hate it. It's been like that with all of my BF kids though.

    Rebecca..WTG on 20 oz

    As far as NIP goes...I have had both positive and negative experiences. The more I did it the more confident I became and now it's just second nature for me. Anytime I find someone giving me a disapproving look for BF(it's always women too!) I make sure to look them right in the eye and give them my best b*tchy look right back or roll my eyes at them which makes them look away quickly and be on their way
