Not a big deal to some but I'm very self conscious. I finally NIP today! I used an udder cover but I did it and we were at a restaurant full of people too. Alyssa is only 2w3d old but let me say they have been a very long 2weeks as I've been hiding out to nurse all the time. I love nursing my LO, just hated feeling so tied down all the time. Now, to conquer the sling and be able to nurse her while she's in that and my life will be easy street!!

Congrats girly! I am hoping to BF and I will admit while I am pretty "rah rah" about a woman being able to BF where ever she wants I am a little nervous about those first few time NIP. Congrats to you and your wee one!

Thanks everyone. I did it again today at my daughter's school. It doesn't seem to matter if she's just nursed or not, when I'm out she needs the boob lol. I'm comfortable doing it with the cover and probably will stay that way lol. I'm all about women bf'ing their LO's too, I just can't bring myself to whip it out where others can see. I wish it didn't bother me to do it though b/c I have to say trying to deal with the cover and getting her latched on sucks right now. I'm thinking it will get easier the more I do it though.
