When you NIP........

And if you aren't using a cover do you go over or under your shirt? I just don't understand the fuss because most moms I know either use a cover of have a tank underneath and then lift the top shirt so there is absolutely nothing to see. I guess if you pulled your breast over the top of your shirt there would be quite a bit of skin showing..but do lots of mamas do it this way??

I always wear a nursing tank under my shirt, so I pull up the top shirt, and unsnap the nursing tank and pull it down.

Re: When you NIP........

I'm always 'under' the shirt. At home if I have a tank I sometimes do over the shirt. Just depends. Sometimes I layer up.

But either way, it doesn't bother me how other women do it. It's just a breast

I layer, top shirt goes over and bottom tank goes under. It wouldn't bother me to see other mama's do it over, it's their choice either way

Re: When you NIP........

I always wear a cami and then pull up my shirt, pull down my cami... Honestly it makes me more uncomfortable to have my pregnant belly hanging out than my boob

Re: When you NIP........

I don't nip normally, only in my mom's group and around women family members but I do it under and wrap my sling around my belly so that's not sticking out

Re: When you NIP........

I go under my shirt; baby hides most of my belly anyway (which is what I'm REALLY uncomfortable about being seen! lol)
The only time I go over my shirt (in public) is if LO is in the wrap/mei tai. I just can't yank my shirt up with her all snuggled in there. Besides, if I go up and out, my nipple is in exactly the right place for her and she stays latched on well.

Re: When you NIP........

I always have two layers on- if it's two stretchy layers (like a tank and shirt overtop) I go under,and if it's a button-down layer (like a linen overshirt or something) I just keep the top button closed and pull the undershirt down. Works for me; I nurse everywhere I go.
