How often are you nursing while typing/browsing the internet?

If you NAK (nurse at keyboard), is it more commonly your phone, a laptop, or a desktop computer?

Haha. Pretty much every timeI nurse I grab my phone and do something.. Here, fb, or play a game. If he's wide awake and nursing I talk to him but most of the time he's drifting off to sleep.

On days like today when I work from home, there is a lot of baby hanging out with me on the laptop! I am on the PC a LOT so most nursing has the baby nearby.

Same. With Grace, I remember nursing at our desktop computer, but I'm never on the desktop these days. And rarely on the laptop either. It's usually my phone.

I remember trying to play games on my desktop while I was nursing my oldest daughter. It actually kind of worked because she would nurse for an hour or so. Now I mostly watch tv if I can or I read books or talk to my older daughter. Sometimes if no one is around I will check email on my phone but it is way too hard for me to type on my phone while nursing.

This. I will either use my phone or laptop. If I'm not nursing her or trying to get her to sleep and the boys are up I am usually with them playing or getting them food etc. (they eat constantly should be interesting when they're teenagers lol) so nursing her gives me a chance to get online

I only use my phone, and I always have it with me, but I've been trying to make a point of not letting it distract me if he's awake while he's nursing. I noticed early on that I was going straight for the phone after he latched , and I felt really bad. But if he throws his arm across his face & falls asleep while nursing, then yes, I'm on the phone. I always grab it at night to help me stay awake.
I can feed him on one side, pump on the other & read through posts here all at the same time! Haha. Multitasking!!

I too will try and talk to her and interact with her if she is awake and alert but most of the time she falls asleep so I will go ahead and get online, play with my phone or watch tv.
