Re: never learning to nurse discreetly?

Maybe she isn't comfortable with people seeing AND she can't do it very well. That is my combo. I have learned over the years and children not to care who sees my breasts when I'm nursing my babies, but it took me at least 3 kids to get that way. Also, I still don't want a man I know seeing if I can help it. I don't care that much, but I avoid it. If I don't know him, I don't care. I couldn't care less if a woman sees my entire breast while I'm nursing, no matter who the woman is. But, I didn't used to feel that way when I was new to nursing.

Anyway, if she expresses a desire to learn, by all means, help her. Or if you are good enough friends you could say something like, "Have you ever tried using a cover?" If not, just leave it alone.

(Oh and my husband would leave too.)
