The bathroom, a construction site ... CafeMoms have pumped breastmilk in some pretty unusual places. Even in the car!

According to Celebrity Babies, Modern Family actress Julie Bowen, 39, reports a pretty embarrassing breastfeeding blunder.

Stopped and forced to make a road detour, Julie — simply wanting to get home to her family — rolled down the window and asked a nearby police officer for help, oblivious to the fact that she was still connected to her pump.

As she tells it:


"I said, ‘Officer, what's going on?' and he starts walking over to the car. I realize I've got an air horn attached to my boob and all of a sudden [I said], ‘Oh, no! No, no, no, stay away, I'm fine, really, please don't come over to the car,' because I didn't want him to think I was drunk or something!"

Can you top that? What's your most awkward or embarrassing breastfeeding blunder?
