Feeding in public – Liz from Birchwood Breast Start

My first public breast feeding attempt was hilarious when I think about it now - I was overly embarrassed but realise now this was because I was so obsessed with sitting correctly and him being in the right position etc - I used a pashmina to afford us some privacy which was a complete disaster - Mack's rooting routine dragged the pashmina down over his head and caused him to panic - I adjusted us and we got going again but every wriggle moved it again - he got wrapped up like a mummy while I tried to prevent strangulation - the end result was me sitting there with my breast completely exposed, a crumpled pashmina on the floor and a hot and sweaty baby wondering what on earth was going on!

After this I decided just to be as discreet as possible and if someone caught a glimpse of nipple as he latched on well hey! That's just tough!
