    But she wasn't denied the service though, they were happy to finish the cut when she finished feeding. But she chose to storm out instead. If they had refused to finish the haircut and asked her to leave it would be a different story.

    actually she was denied the service that was offered by being told a junior would finish it. The jr might be good, but not as good or better than the original hairdresser.

    It depends if she had actually paid extra for a senior hairdresser or not.... I doubt it but who knows.

    The same way it's possible to breastfeed after birth during perineal suturing I'm imagining......

    lie down, attach baby and "put your heels together, being them towards your bottom and let your knees flop out."

    Easy lol. Dr up one end and baby lying on top of my chest.
    My gp knew us and is a Mum of 4 and bf supporter so she knew screaming baby would make the job harder than if the newby was calmly held and feeding from Mummy.

    Honestly, its all this nonsense that makes mixed feeding look very appealing to me.
    Luckily my hair dresser works from home and I fed DD while my colour was setting and then when it was all finished before I left.

    Smarty pants you're not helping me

    I was more imagining baby being asleep on the other side of the room and the Dr being almost done.

    My point is though, sometimes you gotta pick and choose your moments to bf. I give up on analogies but here is one last one, just because you're in the toilet and get hungry, doesn't mean you have to eat then and there. Not saying a hair dressers is comparable to a toilet either.
