Where have YOU breastfed your baby?

Nursing moms know that when the baby's hungry, it's time to breastfeed - even if you're at the supermarket, in the mall, driving home from work, on the beach. Tell us about some of the unlikely places you've ended up nursing your baby.

Nursing moms know that when the baby's hungry, it's time to breastfeed — even if you're at the supermarket, in the mall, driving home from work, on the beach.

Tell us about some of the unlikely places you've ended up nursing your baby. Mine include a Jiffy Lube waiting room, on the beach, on the patio of an Italian restaurant, at a turnpike rest stop, on airplanes, at the library, and parked behind a store on my way home from work. And about 13 times on an endless family trip from Pennsylvania to Maine (I drew the line at nursing in a moving car, so we pulled over constantly.)

What about you? Just add your unlikely breastfeeding location or anecdote in the comments below. We'll collect the best for an upcoming blog entry.
