I love the video--funky and funny but very practicle too! I second the bravado nursing tops!

Really great video blog. Since we have a new one on the way, I've subscribed.

Best line: "Breast Feeding Jedi". Great video blog. I think you have created something wife will actually watch. I hope at least.

Bravo! Great videoblog.

It took me a while to get used to my wife feeding our son in public, but she was comfortable with it, so I became so, too.

One of our friends used to pack a poncho - you know, the trendy type - to cover herself and her baby when she fed in public. It was comfortable for her, and most people were completely unaware that she was feeding.


Bravo Susan!

This is fantastic!

This is great! I love that you are addressing such a topic that so many people still think should be unmentioned in public, even though it's as natural as eating. Us eating. The adults, that is.

Julie Low:

I had to learn to breastfeed in public when we took our daughter Sarah to England. Our flight was delayed and we spent most of the day in the airport. So, I had to learn pretty quick to get over the public thing! It was a snap because I was wearing a nursing shirt. A security guard kept pacing back and forth and had absolutely no clue what I was doing :-)

Nice! Great use of music, prelinger footage, voice over.
Susan is funny and down to earth in her delivery. Good stuff.

So good! The pacing and humor are great.

Nancy Thaler:

Great video! Any suggestions for when
the little darling is sighing loudly, grunting, or (as my sweet 7 week old son does) farting and explosively pooping (audible several rooms away) while nursing? I'm not sure how that would go over at Starbuck's.

Very Awesome Vlog here! I love this breastfeeding one. I look forward to more videos.

Awesome site!! With my first child, I was shy as well. When it was feeding time and we were out, I would go to the car, or restroom... not fun. If you are shy, there are ways to do it discreetly. After awhile, I just draped a blanket over my shoulder.


To the mom of the "explosive pooper" I think that anyone who doesn't find baby farts funny, is absolutely INSANE, cause that is the funniest thing in the world!!!!

Thanks for all the comments! Hope people keep the advice coming! As for the explosive pooper - that won't last forever. I think lot of babies do that for a while - it's pretty shocking that a baby can hit those decibels, but if I remember correctly it won't last for more than a couple months (anyone else have this problem? how long does it last?). And it is hilarious. don't worry about it, if anything you'll make people laugh - that's a good thing - or carry around a boom box to drown it out ;)

Love this! I've nursed three kids, the oldest now 10 and the youngest 2 and still going strong. The attitude thing is really very true. One thing I've noticed that people who make a big deal about covering up actually attract more attention.

And I wish I'd known about those camisole nursing bras sooner! My youngest is on the verge of weaning, so it doesn't make sense to get one now.


Susanne, you'd be proud, I whipped out the goods at whole foods today and fed Elsa!

You go Hallie!

Great video! I love the camisole advice - I breastfed my 1st for 13 mos, and am now 2 mos into nursing my second and I never thought of a camisole before - thanks for the advice!
