Guest Post at A Little Bit of All of It: A New Mom's Tale for Nursing on the Go

A Little Bit of All of It Preparing for Birth Series

Today you'll find my guest post on A Little Bit of All of It, where Julia is hosting a 10 week series on Preparing for Birth. This week is centered around Breastfeeding.

About a month ago I took a trans-American trip with Penelope and my family for my brother's college graduation and then a week on the beach in Pensacola, Florida. Although I had the amazing support of my family in carting around all of Penelope's stuff, there was one thing no one else could help me with - feeding her! At this point I had not yet introduced the bottle, and in retrospect I am glad I hadn't. Check out the post to read about my shenanagins in trying to figure out how to nurse her on this vacation.

  1. I sometimes let my little one scoot down in the ergo, pull up (or down) my shirt and let my hand-made nursing cover lay over the top. I walked around the Woodland Park Zoo like this, and although my shirt got a little stretched out, everyone just thought I had a sleeping baby under there. No one had any idea I was bf in my ergo.

    I bf on the go all the time, restaurant, or in the car mostly. In the car, I don't worry about the nursing cover. If someone looks, I figure its in my car, so if they don't want to see it, they can look away. Once I guy parked next to me and kind of did a double take. I just nodded at him, like "yep- this is happening".

    I love breast feeding. Its so snuggley, and so healthy!

    1. Melody, I just got an ergo for my bday and I've seen women bf with them- ingenious! I love that it was included in the design. I've also nursed in the car, it's actually fairly comfortable, I'd say it's my preferential "on the go" bf'ing spot.
