Do you need a special room? As you know, California is pretty liberal. I have seen many mothers nursing in public locations. Some of them use a pashima or something to shield the activity (and their breast) from the public eye. I think as long as you are somewhat discreet, you won't have a problem.

Perhaps Carmel has different sensibilities, but I would be very surprised. Let's see what the natives say. :~)

This Carmel native has never heard of any special places for this purpose. I would say whatever mothers do in San Jose is probably acceptable in Carmel.

new moms find it difficult to nurse in public. And I know sometimes the baby requires no distractions as well. Picking a quiet road near a beach in a car works. if you are having a second, it will be easier nursing in public.Il Fornaio in Carmel has a separate party room that I am sure if not in use they would not mind you using. There are several quiet courtyard gardens in Carmel that would afford privacy, such as in front of the Carmel Art Association down the street from the post office, or the beautiful garden at the church of the Wayfarer
