I breastfeed in public. No biggie.

I am a big supporter of breastfeeding! BIG BIG!! I have breastfed all of my children. My oldest daughter will be 14 in June and she nursed for 2 years. My son nursed for over a year. Lil O nursed for over 2 years. Now I am breastfeeding the new baby (who will be 4 weeks old tomorrow, sniffle). It is such a special time to bond with my baby and give her the best nutrition she can get.

I bring this up because I have always breastfed my children in public. I have never cowered in the bathroom or the car to nurse them. They have to eat just like everyone else and they eat where I am. I am very polite about it. I don't just pull my boob out and feed her. I always make sure I am well covered. Trust me, there is a polite way and the "OMG do you see what she is doing" way. So anyway this afternoon we stopped to eat at Earth Fare. A grocery that has a YUMMY bar during the day. Moon Pie woke up in the line and was ready to eat! I sat in the booth and nursed her as I was eating my dinner as well. No harm and I didn't flash any innocent bystanders.

Breastfeeding is such a natural and beautiful thing. I LOVE BREASTFEEDING!!!! Breastfeeding ROCKS!!!!!! Anyway... I just wanted to share my love for breastfeeding and talk about nursing your baby in public.

With the kids being sick and coughing and spreading THEIR germs around the house is was bound to happen. I am starting to get sick. I woke up from my nap with a scratchy throat and now I feel all icky. I popped some cold meds and made a cup of HOT coffee to ease my achy body. Moms aren't supposed to get sick. Who will take care of everyone else if we cannot??? I have Moon Pie in the wrap and she is snug as a bug in a rug. I love this thing. Lil O is in her pj's playing around the house. My HB is watching Top Gear on the couch. I hope he doesn't get sick as well. Then there would be no one to take care of me!!! And that is what it is all about! ha ha

I am supposed to go to the doctor for my 4 week check up tomorrow. So she can check out my cesarean scar and make me step on the scales. I picked up a nice thank you card for her to enclose a picture of her holding Moon Pie. I am also picking up her a gift tomorrow from this neat place downtown. They have great bath things. It is also a spa. My HB always gets me bath products there on special occasions.

Here is a photo taken on Mothers Day with all my four children. We had just got home from eating breakfast out and had put our pj's back on. Yes, I look tired. I am. Plus, I did just have a baby a few short weeks ago.

Mothers Day

I took this later on during the day. I love this picture.
