What do you do while Breastfeeding?

It's always interesting how moms can multi-task.

When my dd was tiny, I could put her in a ring sling and feed her while doing so much stuff, now that she's older, it's harder. Now I just watch tv, read a book to her, read a book for me or jus enjoy her company.

What do you do while breastfeeding?

I usually watch TV or just stare DS, talk to him and brush his hair with my fingers.

When he was newborn my mom told me not to call her while breastfeed him because that should be a special moment to share with him and not the be talking at the phone. So I quit the calling and just enjoy the company. If SO is at home I talk to him.

When I was at home, I slept, watched TV, played on the computer (CafeMom mostly), or played on my phone (before smartphones and cm mobile). When we were out, I nursed while shopping, watching my older son play football, went to church and received communion, etc.

Really?!? While getting communion? Do you completely hide him or are you just modest? Church is the one place I have to feed him openly. I still go to the nursery or a pastors office. :(I really want to just nurse so i can enjoy service.

sorry for the questions, just not sure if I can bring it up to the pastors....:)
