One Of Those Weekends

This weekend was one of those weekends that keeps you smiling during the week. We went to a tulip festival, had some good eats and then celebrated Easter. It's crazy how with a baby going out into the world takes on a whole new meaning. Going to the tulip festival worked out perfect, we weren't in any kind of rush so we just left when Jocelyn started napping and then stayed there until she woke up. But church was a total failure. Right when we needed to be at church Jocelyn needed to eat, so she was just crying until we pulled up to the building, we were so frazzled that she got to church in her sleeper and didn't even make it into a dress.Once we got there Matt got to go in to the meeting while I just sat in the bathroom and fed Jocelyn, to which she squirmed and kicked the whole time because she was under a nursing cover and didn't know what the heck was going on. I just stared at the other moms like, "She never does this.ha." Finally after fighting the battle for 40 minutes I grabbed Matt and told him we had to go home so Jocelyn could eat. And there you have it, that was our first week back to church. If I've learned anything since having Jocelyn though it's that you just have to keep trying. Try over...and over....and over again until eventually things work. So we'll try again next week, and hopefully this time we'll all be fully clothed:)

Ha! Girlfriend! Ditch that cover! Proud mama of a 16 month old and another girl on the way. Our first Sunday at church I nursed my 6 week old without a cover in sacrament meeting in the first row. Nobody is going to tell me where, when or how to feed my kid. My husband was a bit embarrassed at first (he was born and raised in Utah. I was born and raised in Brazil and converted at 18) and a few weeks later he stands by me on the issue. We live in NYC and nobody bats an eye at women nursing, I did it while I was in Utah in sacrament sans cover when she was 6 mos and got some looks but dang it I was proud of it and stared right back at them.

Does your church house not have a mothers room? Maybe go into a stall and shut the door so you can nurse without the cover? Hilton never nursed well under covers either. Good luck!

Ha, I hated nursing covers. My baby never wanted to eat under one because he never did at home, so he was always like "what's going on, this isn't right?!". Oh babies! Hopefully church will get easier for you guys!

It gets better! I totally know how you feel. Nursing with a cover is hard. Sometimes i feel like it brings more attention than if you were to just not use it. Eventually I just got rid of the cover and became a pro at breastfeeding. :) You can do it! Hang in there! You are doing a great job!

I hated nursing covers. I always had better luck with just using a blanket and putting it over my head and the baby til they latched, then popped my head out. This past baby I was lucky in that the ward wasn't crawling with nursing babies so I usually had the small mothers lounge to myself and never needed to cover up in there. It will get easier!

Congratulations Sarah! I have been following your blog for a while (not realizing you were LDS too for a long time) but have been sort of out of it for the past 3 ish months since having my baby boy. I LOVE your blog and it is so nice to know I am not the only one who is struggling with taking my baby to church :) we keep going but I swear most Sundays I don't get to listen to a single talk or lesson all the way through! but It is still something I look forward to every week, especially RS since my husband usually tries to take T-man to priesthood with him. Thankfully though we have a YSA room at our building, where you can find a flat screen and several sofas which I use to breastfeed, no nursing cover needed since we only have like 40 to 50 people in our branch and everyone knows I go there to nurse :D the blessings of belonging to a small branch on an island in the middle of the North Atlantic Ocean. Anyways, just nice to know others are going through similar things :)
