Women, babies and travel



I figured I’d sneak in a quick NIP photo while flying…..

I see so many reports about women nursing in public- not much to see here…. But I still get nervous that someone might say something to me. I like to fly with my son. He’s relatively easy to fly with! We have gone to PA for work, Mississippi for family visits, and New Jersey to see my best friend. It really is an easy adventure with him!

However, what’s nerve wracking is NIP and the thought that someone might say something to you- even though I know I have rights and can NIP when needed.

Since I had an unplanned CS I really wanted to make sure and stick to my other plans of natural attachment parenting. I’m so thankful I’ve been able to breast feed and hope to continue as long as my little guy needs. We are going on 15 months! I remember how frustrating it was at first! He didn’t want to latch and people saying he was a small baby (making me think I should supplement). But, gladly, I went with my gut and my heart; to this day he has not had a drop of formula and that makes me happy. I do realize so moms need to supplement (in no way am I criticizing you or suggesting your child is worse off) I’m just glad I was able to stick to my plan!

It’s been a long-long travel day! We flew home from Jackson MS and I’m tired! My son is nursing now and hubby is snoring….. How is it that moms still work even when were not working? I need a vaca away from my vaca!

So happy to write to you all….. All meaning the 1 person that reads this 😂 I can’t even bring myself to share my blog just yet… It doesn’t seem “professional” or “concise” enough.
I’m happy I’m getting thoughts on paper! (Or blog space!)
