I can laugh…now!

Breastfeeding Blog Hop hosted by The Slacker Mom


Sorry I’m late folks!  Welcome to the weekly Breastfeeding Blog Hop hosted by Happiness Redefined, The Gnome’s Mom and myself!  This week’s topic is: Nursing in public {Blooper Edition}.  Here’s you chance to spill your most embarrassing nursing in public moment.  The linky closes at midnight tonight so be sure to get your posts linked up and as always, spread some love to the other hoppers.

I would have to say the most embarrassing NIP moment I ever had was when I was meeting someone from an online mom’s group I used to belong to for the first time.  My family had dinner at a restaurant and she was going to meet us afterwards for coffee.  I was supposed to send The Tank home but of course he wanted to keep nursing, so I had him stay with me.

The other mom was running a bit late.  The chairs were more than a bit uncomfortable.  I was losing steam after sitting there for over an hour already, mostly nursing.  There was a lot of thrashing around, the nursing cover was flying (this was before I got comfy with ditching the cover) and I’m sure everyone around me got more than they bargained for in the boob department.

My friend finally arrived, I was at my wits end and the coffee date didn’t go exactly as planned.  I was a bit preoccupied wrangling the circus attached to my chest to enjoy the conversation.  I’m pretty sure she never talked to me after that (I must have come off as a crazy person). I think this was the most embarrassing part for me- I was looking like a breastfeeding failure in front of a fellow breastfeeding mom.  Oh well.

But, it helped me get over having to use a cover.  It was that moment that I knew I could probably be more discreet and modest simply by planning my outfits a little better and getting rid of the Hooter Hider.

And that is exactly what I did.

    Hi! I've been linking up to the hop this year, and was wondering if you would be able to post the next few topics a little bit in advance? It would be great to have a little more time to prepare, instead of rushing to get the post written and posted before the linky expires. Just a suggestion! 🙂

    Hi Jenny! Thank you for joining in the hop! Until I get the BFBlogHop Facebook page up and running (I seem to be running short on extra time these days) I have been announcing the topic on The Slacker Mom's FB page (fb.com/theslackermom) and on Twitter (@TheSlackrMom). I usually announce it there by Tuesday at the latest so people can get a jump start on their posts because I know some people like a little advanced warning 😉
