BF in public... without pillows

Incredibly, I have made it this far (2nd baby, 8 months old) without ever breastfeeding in public.

Next month I'm off to the knitting & stitching show at Alexandra Palace promoting my book, taking him with me, and I don't know what to do about feeding him!

I've only ever really used the rugby ball hold, but obviously I can't easily take a pillow with me.

Anyone have any tips? Is there anywhere good to go and feed a baby at Ally Pally? (I've been before but that was before I had children and I was more concerned about where the bar was.)

I went to the K&S show last year and the main halls are pretty much a bunfight - nowhere to sit. The lobby-type places are better but you might have to resign yourself to sitting on the floor in a corner. I've done that before though cross-legged and DC on my lap.

i can do it on the floor.
if you sit with your back resting on something and lift your knees up, it's perfectly manageable with an 8monthold.

and at 8 months old, try him sitting in your lap.
dd was tall enough by then that she could sit on me and feed upright.

you might need to practise other holds, smile

yeah, zuleikaD, that's pretty much how i remember the main halls too.

i think you're right nickel - i need to practise! plenty of time to work something out.

thanks to you both for the tips smile
