And like a few of you said, little if no skin is showing, and unless the person is staring you down every second of the process - which would be really creepy - they shouldn't see much if anything.

(thanks for keeping your responses kind and informative and not hounding It's all new to me.)
Mama, I just wanted to show you a couple of pictures that my aunt took of me nursing my little one last weekend at the zoo. We were in public and I was without a cover (do not use one). You cannot see an inch of skin.

The few times that I have worn a cover have been disastrous. Each time I put one on, it was as if DD freaked out either from the darkness, the stillness, or what-have-you, but she started flopping, shrieking, and scratching at her head. Lets just say it called for way more attention than was necessary

expecting our 2nd baby
