Top 5 strangest places to breastfeed

What an awkward topic....sort of...I suppose it depends on what circle of people you frequent. If you don't want to read about breastfeeding, skip this post.

Breastfeeding is a challenge, no doubt about it. I don't know anyone who said it just came naturally. I'm way better at feeding Adara than when we first started. Now I feed her when she's hungry, tired, bored, or hurt. It's an easy solution to many problems.

I've found myself feeding her in some unusual situations. I found them amusing,so I thought I'd share:

- Breastfeeding in the shower
Before she could crawl, I could sit her next to the shower and talk to her. However, she started crawling into the shower with me and crying for me to pick her up. So I took her clothes off and cleaned her with me. She quickly discovered her food source while I was holding her and decided she wanted a snack.

-Breastfeeding while changing my clothes I used to put Adara in my lap while I changed from pajamas to regular clothes. I don't as often now because as soon as I take my pajamas off she latches and snacks away.

-Breastfeeding while changing Adara's clothes
She is SO wiggly! I tried to get her pajamas on and the only way to keep her still was to feed her. So I did, and finally got her in pajamas.

-Breastfeeding while going to the bathroom
Maybe that's gross, but she'd fallen and was screaming and I wanted her to stop. She did.

-Breastfeeding while riding in the car
She stayed in her car seat the entire time. I sat/leaned beside her. Alex drove. Mileage accomplished, and baby fed. No bottles necessary.

So where's the strangest place you've fed your baby? Am I the only one whose done these?
