I breastfed in my ergo today in a town which has low breastfeeding rates at the local supermarket :-D
God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change; courage to change the things I can; and wisdom to know the difference.

At the local supermarket. There was a plastic chair on the inside of the store right next to the door. So while DH was taking care of the groceries and paying for it, I breastfed DS. Lots of people around, and our checkout lady was very pregnant with her 1st. I hope I was a good influence. I was going to tell her about ABA but DD was being a bit difficult.

At playgroup again, but this time there was a photographer there from the local paper. I wasn't too keen though on one of the prep kids coming up as I was feeding James and touching the top of my breast. This meant that James came off without opening his mouth as he was distracted.

At the zoo with a group from playgroup. Not sure if any of them knew Little Magoo is still feeding before then- guess they do now!!! They are probably doubly shocked as I also confessed to being pregnant while we where out.
Little Magoo 07/08. Breastfed for 3yrs3mths.
Miss Magoo 10/11. Breastfed for 4yrs3mths.

At the Drs surgery right accross from a woman that had just breastfed her 4mth old after her needles....she covered everything with a blanket and made it look like a mammoth task. I just picked up bubba who is 15mths and fed her. hopefully she will be feeling for a while yet :-D

At the public car park on the way to the city
Santos Stadium x 3
At the fish and chip shop
At the HUGE and very BUSY food court at the HUGE MASSIVE shopping centre in the city
At DD2's hearing assessment
At the automatic car wash. DD2 decided it was feed time while the car was getting washed, a little unusual!

On one of the occasions at Santos, I was feeding DD2 at the same time standing up in the big crowd cheering DD on while she was running her hurdles heat :shock: :lol: :-D

At the car dealership while the sales manager was pitching a car at us. It didn't put him off his stride at all :)
So long everyone! Thanks for everything :-D

- In the cafe at my local library - very comfy and I managed to eat a sandwich at the same time
- In the clinic's waiting room after DS got his immunizations

That's it...he tends to sleep quite deeply while being worn in his wrap/sling, or riding in a stroller, and wakes up when we get home so I don't actually do all that much feeding out and about.

At the leagues club just after talking to another BFing mum about the joys of feeding toddlers in public and asking her where she got the plastic cup for water from. (If you're on here, sorry if I scared you and thanks for letting me know the cup came from the bar)

i fed our nearly 2 y.o. while we went on our first family sail on our new boat (sorry, haven't downloaded the photos yet). she was wearing a lifejacket so a bit bulky but between booby and all the food she hoovered down it kept her busy for the afternoon.

summer tip - remember to put sunscreen on areas that might be exposed when breastfeeding!!! got a touch burnt as i didnt do this.
