...a positive one!!!   :)

I am a pretty modest person and I dont really feel comfortable nursing in public.  I dont have a problem with anyone else who does it, but I am not one of you ladies who can easily go to a mall or target whip out the boobie and start nursing.  Today DS (6 mo) and I took my mom out to brunch.  I planned everything accrodingly till my mom decided she wanted to go a little later than we planned.  I thought DS would be able to wait it out, but he got hungry early and halfway through brunch he started screaming!!!  he tends to go from a little fussy to SCREAMING in hunger in 2 min, esp when he is tired, but it has never happened in public.  

So the waitress happened to be at our table bringing us juice when she saw this all go down and said "oh do you breastfeed him? because if you do feel free to do it here.  we welcome nursing moms, people have done it here several times"  i told her how i have never done it in public and was kind of weirded out about it and she said she didnt think anyone would even notice and helped my mom block me as i pulled it out and DS latched.  I guess Happy Mother's Day to me!  haha  :)
