I've nursed all over the place in the last two weeks. Church, the mall, the doctor's office, the bakery, Chik-fil-et, the car, Target, if I've been there, I've nursed there. Haven't had a single comment or complaint.
The only complaint I get is when I nurse at home.
Who would have thought I'd need nursing tops for use in my own home.
Elnora thinks so.
No, seriously. She has NO problem with the breasts, with Emmitt nursing, she's intrigued actually. She wanted to know what I was doing the first few days and I'd tell her "Emmitt is drinking milk." Then she'd hold up her sippy of milk and I'd say "yep, that's Nora's milk, this is Emmitt's milk." She's cool with that.
But, if I nurse in a regular shirt and show some stomach, she comes over, points at me and says "yuck!"
Thanks kid. Way to make mom feel good. :-P
But if I cover up with a blanket or burp cloth or whatever, she's perfectly content.
*hmph!* I thought I was doing pretty good...checked the scales this morning and I'm actually down four pounds less than my pre-preg weight. Let's hear it for round-the-clock nursers!
Some day, when she's a teenager, I'm going to get a lot of glee from pointing at her bare stomach and saying "yuck!"
