Lactating woman offered boob during flight.

by Larry_D._Smith on April 2, 2011   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

Was flying by myself with my two-month old, trying to rock the baby to sleep in my arms in the aisle, when a woman walked over, explained that for whatever reason she still lactates even though her kid no longer breastfeeds, and made Lukas an offer he definitely didn't want to refuse. He went nuts when he was near her, but I figured we'd make it. Later, she appeared to be passed out on white wine.
