  • I'm fine wherever. At the mall, if I want to sit down somewhere private (and since i have a two year old, I do!) I'll find a bathrrom with a nursing area. Nordstroms are really nice, with lots of couches.

  • I have breastfed 3 so far and I am just about comfortable anywhere. The only place I have been uncomfortable was at my parents house. If my dad realizes what I am doing, he bolts SO fast!!! I usually go in another room there. Lol!!

  • I breastfeed pretty much anywhere that has a bench or somewhere for me to sit down. So Target or other shops that aren't in a mall are pretty much out. If my daughter is hungry in Target or somewhere like that I will just go to the car. Our mall has a nursing area, too, that is nice.

  • Honestly, I can't think of a place where I was uncomfortable breastfeeding. Just a baby getting milk. Nothing to be uncomfortable about.

  • When I was breastfeeding I did it were I was. Mind you I would find a dressing room and they were always good about letting me have one.

  • I'm fine anywhere except at the school I work at lol. As soon as I walk through the doors all my 3-5 year old students crowd me and never leave my side. If my dd has to go with me I make sure she eats in the car before. I don't mind breastfeeding in front of small children but when I have at least 5 of my students on top of me while i'm trying to feed....then I feel uncomfortable. :)
    Other than that I will do it anywhere. store, restaurant, shopping, you name it.
