    Default NIP (Nursing in Public) Pic

    For our 11 year wedding anniversary, DH and I went to Glacier National Park in Montana. We rode the rickety old bus up a narrow, steep, and winding road to Logan Pass. Then we hiked up the "Hidden Lake Trail" half a mile. And Evie required nursing (probably her ears were bugging her). So, I nursed Evelyn.. at about 7,000 ft above sea level. DH took a pic to prove it.



    Where's someplace you've had to NIP that you never thought you'd be brave enough to?

    Great picture!

    The last time I NIP was earlier this summer when my daredevil of a son decided he was done at a restaurant and managed to climb and fall head first into a wall faster than I could react. NIP made checking him over sooo much easier. Plus since he actually nursed and stopped crying, I knew he wasn't hurt enough requiring medical attention. Sure did freak out the manager though. lol

    Great pic!! I have a few like that from camping trips. Its so nice to so easily bring along baby's food on hikes.

    I've NIP everywhere and I've never been made to feel awkward, thankfully. I think my first "Wow, I just managed that" moment was when DD was 5 weeks and I nursed her on a plane next to a complete stranger. At that point we were still getting used to nursing and it was one of the first times nursing without a Boppy. Since then we've nursed pretty much everywhere we go. T still asks all the time while we're out and I'm happy to oblige if I'm not too busy.

    I've always been a pretty fearless NIP-er...but I definitely gave pause for like two seconds when I was about to do it in church at my great-aunt's funeral. And then standing in line at the post office (super long line) for DD's passport. That was really early on, and milk was spraying everywhere, but I did it anyway. And then, I have to say, there were one or two times where I ended up sitting down in a middle of the mall seating area while my husband was shopping (um, he can take FOREVER in an athletic shoe store!). You wouldn't think this would be that awkward, but there were always (for some reason) old, creepy men sitting right opposite me- and they would STARE- I suppose they didn't realize what I was doing, because it is THAT not obvious sometimes- but they also didn't expect me to nurse THERE, because the mall does have a nursing room.

    I, honestly, was appalled by the clerk in the Motherhood Maternity at our "local" (1 hour away) mall. I was shopping for a nursing bra and she said "Oh, and if you ever need to nurse your baby, you are more than welcome to come use our dressing rooms." Uh.... I just replied "Oh, that's okay.. I have NO problem letting them loose in the food court." I think she was embarrassed by my reply. I have said it before.. my modesty in NIP is not for my sake, but for everyone else's.

    Haha! I totally would have said something similar.

    My local mall has a nursing room but its dank and annoying to get to. I learned how to nurse and walk in my ring sling without anyone knowing pretty quickly. There was a time though when DD was a VERY distracted nurser and so hiding in dressing rooms or in the car helped a lot. When I nursed her in the car after daycare, I wanted to yell "I'm hiding for her sake, not yours!" at passers by. Does that make me odd?
