for a “nosh” as Little Bear calls it. When he was a newborn he had severe reflux and would only nurse for a few minutes at a time. We took to calling these short but very frequent sessions ‘noshing’ and the name stuck.
I’m posting this entry in response to a thread in the Lactivisim forum on Mothering dot commune and back dating it to the day the picture was taken. The question is, “What unusual places have you nursed?” and the responses have listed a multitude of both typical and atypical public spots. Yeah for making breastfeeding mainstream!
Here is my response; “All the usual (according to this thread, isn’t that cool!) places; stores, restaurants, planes, trains and automobiles, ren faires and other outdoor shows, playgrounds and parks, bike paths and hiking trails, the zoo, botanical gardens and riparian institute, swimming pools, lakes and splash parks, churches, libraries, museums and meeting halls, a wild west town, the Grand Canyon, in at least 18 states (still hoping to get abroad) and beaches on both coasts. The most unusual place - the bucket of an excavator!”
