    My midwife today told me that with her little girl (who's one now), if she was in town and needed to feed and couldn't find a suitable place, she'd go into a clothes shop, take in a few items to pretend to try on, and feed her daughter in there! My LO would give me away pronto as she's so noisy when she feeds but I thought it was a tip worth sharing.

    PS I know a lot of people will say 'sod it, you can feed anywhere' but not everyone is comfortable doing that, especially in the early days.

    I went in to try things on and if she needed feeding I'd just do it while I was in there. They didnt mind :)

    Great idea thank you so much. I never thought of that and don't fancy the idea of places such as a disabled toilet or cafe, I can't say sod it I'm too shy. Maybe I'll change. xx
