Nursing in the summer can present new challenges from traveling, to being with family and trying to nurse discretely in a bathing suit. My only nursling right now is still an infant but I found myself at the pool needing to nurse. I discovered having a top over my suit made it easy to nurse discretely. Funny how I never figured this out with my other two (or maybe I did and I forgot).
I can remember being at the pool with my first child when he was an infant. Another mother asked if I was nursing him and when I said yes, she whispered to me, "I am still nursing my 2 year old but I don't tell anyone." Her comment has stuck with me all these years and has sparked in me the desire to not hide nursing a toddler ( even more challenging when they are over 3.)
Share your challenges and how you have handled them, share a funny story or pose a question.
Do you nurse a toddler at the pool or beach and do you try to be discrete and if so, how while wearing a swim suit?
How do you handle comments from relatives or friends on "How long are you going to nurse that child?"
