Re: Do you use a nursing cover in public?

i do, but with my recent NIP has been at church and I don't want to distract people. She draws a lot of attention with her gulping anyways. I almost always cover in some way.Once we're a little better together I'll just drape a burp cloth over her, it will keep me covered and her from being distracted while still being pretty light.

eta: I tend to nurse over the top of a shirt or dress so there's a bit more to see if I don't cover. I got a cover with the bendable metal in it so it's hands free, airy, and I can see DD

I'm not out to "prove" anything or to make a statement about how nursing is natural, a-sexual, and need not be hidden -- I just want to feed my baby period. Covering up just simplifies things for me, I think.

I have a blanket that I put a strap on that I use when I'm out if I feel people will be uncomfortable.
