Do you use a "hooter hider" or nursing cover when NIP?

I usually use a cover while I am out. Its really a HUGE pain though since my little man is so incredibly distracted by everything. I never wear a nursing bra though. I just wear a regular bra and lift it up when he needs to nurse. I always found nursing bras to be more of a pain then anything.

Hooter hiders

Hooter hiders have been praised by mothers and medical professionals that allow you to nurse discreetly and in style. They are one of the all-time favorite baby shower gifts, and have been praised by mothers.

I said no, because I don't always. I use it if there are people I know around who would be bothered by it, or lots of kids. I'm pretty discrete without my cover. I used to always nurse with my cover, but then one day I was at the zoo and it was like 80 degrees out. I wouldn't want to have to eat under a cover in that heat, so I just nursed without it. I pull my shirt just above where his head is and his head covers the rest. He likes to play with my shirt while he nurses anyway. I also have nursing tanks that I love for NIP. The way I see it (as someone from the boards pointed out to me) a bottle feeding mom doesn't have to put a blanket over her baby, why should I? Its not fair to the baby.

Nope, don't use them. Anyone who has a problem with me feeding my kid can f*** off. :)

I DO wear clothes designed for nursing, so I'm relatively covered. But it's just a feeding utensil like any other.
