I can honestly say that I can’t think of any bloopers. That said, when Maggie was 1 week old, we had to go to a wedding. Everybody was very excited to meet her and wanted to see her. I was sitting in the back of the reception area at our table nursing her under her blanket. I was wearing a dress and my only option was to pull down the whole side to nurse her, so I figured I should cover up a little bit. Not thinking about what I may be doing, somebody walked over and said, “Oh, she’s sleeping” and lifted the blanket to have a peek….SURPRISE! Didn’t really bother me but the person who did this was a big guy! He was a bit embarrassed, but I thought it was pretty funny.
I’m definitely not a shy person, and my daughter has always latched on pretty fast, but when she was just starting out, we did try to cover her up when we were out in public. Over the next few months, we did this just to keep her from getting distracted. Once she got more wiggly though, we have pretty much given up covering her up whenever possible. She just gets mad and throws it off. I do keep a blanket wrapped around her and cover the side of her head that’s not against me, but only because she does still get distracted, but she hates being covered up.
She’s 16 months old now, and seems to think my boobs belong to her. When she decides it’s time to nurse, she just yanks my shirt down, which has given quite a few people a show. The only place I do try to be careful with her doing this is church, it just feels wrong to give people a peep show there. If I don’t let her in, she will sit there with her hand down my shirt touching one of the girls just to comfort herself. Silly little girl!
