Since we're on the topic--Breastfeeding in public: Talk to me about it.
Specifically, I'm wondering whether anyone who stops by here has nursed a baby in the pew during church. And whether in general we are in favor of such, neutral, or horrified by the suggestion.
I can't make up my mind. Haven't ever done it, but with New Guy liking to eat quite often, and with the possibility that the whole baby train will follow me out if I try to make a discreet exit from the sanctuary for a quick feeding, the thought does become more tempting. It would make getting ready for church much easier, too, if I weren't trying desperately to tweak his (non) schedule while getting the rest of us ready too.
Of course, this would be done under discreet cover, with the expectation that few if any would realize what was taking place (which is another reason that these early weeks are probably the only time I'd consider this--I don't know about your babies, but mine tend to get rather noisy about the process as they get older, and tend to resent being undercover).
Part of me hates that this is even a question. I mean, Baby is hungry, Baby should get to eat. This is how God designed babies to eat.
Almost enough to make me look enviously at the woman in the next pew who whips out the Similac and gets to sit quietly through the sermon as her baby works on the bottle.
