i've actually never heard of closet nursing and i personally don't understand why someone would do this. ?but i live in a pretty pro-BF area.?
if someone does this, i would like to know why you do it? ?is it fear of being labeled at work that you are taking the ?"mommy path"?
I stopped pumping at work at 11.5 months. DD stopped nursing at 22 months. I think the last time she nursed in public was around 13 or 14 months. Soon after she was only nursing 2-3 times a day and if we were out and she was distracted/playing/etc she wouldn't ask. After about 13 months her primary nutrition was from table food. Nursing was for supplemental nutrition and comfort.
I never hid the fact that I was puming or nursing, but once we were no longer nursing in public and I wasn't pumping at work the topic really stopped coming up with almost everyone.
