  • I breastfed 10 years of my life and did a lot of things; while my child had an EEG, while I was having a root canal, during a car accident (1980, way before car seat laws), during labor, at chemotherapy centers while I was recieving IV drug therapy for immune deficiencies, at chemotherapy centers at a major children's hospital while my baby had IVs in his head and his two brothers were also getting IV drug therapy for hereditary immune deficiencies (the 3 kids at once but not me), during concerts, in college classes, in the recovery room after cancer surgery, at the Ice Capades, camping, in a wheelchair (using hands to move wheelchair), at Cub Scout meetings, just about anywhere a mom would go in 10 years.

  • Keisha, BF during exam is actually common. It helps keep the baby calm and relaxed rather than scared and screaming.

  • I was breastfeeding the doctor was examining the baby. He listened to her heart with the stethoscope and checked her ears with the microscope thingy they use.
    Yesterday was my 1 month old's doctor appointment and I had just started feeding her when the doctor came into the room. I offered to take her off the breast but he said it was okay and continued with the examination. I was pretty weirded out. Also, he had an intern with him (a kid who looked younger than my husband). I came home and told my husband about my experience and he said the doctors are used to it and I'm prob not the only one.
