Re: NIP: To cover or not to cover...that is the poll question

We NIP all the time, and have since the beginning, and I don't cover up. Heck, I consider myself lucky lately if Henry isn't pulling down the other side of my bra to play with the other nipple while nursing. I am in no way self-conscious about it, and no one has ever said anything negative to me.

My mom isn't extremely comfortable with how comfortable I am with it, but she is a woman who pretty much didn't leave her house for the first 16 months of my life because she was scared to nurse me in public. I refuse to do that.

In a way, I feel like its my responsibility as a lactivist to NIP and NOT cover up, because only by treating nursing as the normal, right thing to do will society ever view it as such.
