Where's the most random or oddest place you have breast fed your baby or babies?


Mine was the psych ward my sd was in. Inside her social workers office for a family session to discuss when sd was able to come home.

My 2nd oddest place was in the bathroom while peeing.

I had to breastfeed in the bathroom because people were grossed out about it.

It's awkward and weird to bf in a bathroom. If I were you I would have told em to get over it or they can start eating their meals in the bathroom like the baby does

Yet most people find eating and drinking in the bathroom gross. Funny how they're okay with an infant doing it. Hypocrites. 

Sorry you had to do that!

I was never comfortable breast-feeding publicly but I SO wish I had been.

My stress and discomfort made them uncomfortable and I realize that now.

*sigh You live and you learn, I suppose.

Wow... its sad that thr natural act of breastfeeding has become taboo. But its perfectly acceptable fir women to run around in next to nothing in public. :/ I'm sorry you had to do that. You should have told them to go eat their meal in the bathroom.

I've bf any and everywhere. Nobody ever had an issue. Neither did I. I'm not sure which places would be weird. It's awkward in the car though. The car seat is tough on the ribs.
