Re: Dh's opinion on NIP

My DH has never cared and always been all for it. I never cover up but just lift my shirt and he has never cared or said anything. He always kissed the kids heads when they were little and nursing

Re: Dh's opinion on NIP

Dh wouldn't ever say I don't think. I think he figures I should do whatever works for ME and the baby and that since he doesn't BF he wouldn't think it was his place to say or care. That being said, I'm pretty modest and I couldn't feed ds past 5 mo in public because he was impossible- just too interested in everything going on and wouldn't stay latched, so we've been going somewhere quiet for a long time.
All the guys I know of my generation who are dads, are very easy going and cool about bfing.

Re: Dh's opinion on NIP

DH talks all the time about how "good" I am at nursing (read: discreet). He thinks I should do whatever makes my life easiest, so I guess I'm lucky that he's comfortable with me nursing anywhere. That said, I'm not that uninhibited lol.

Re: Dh's opinion on NIP

DH and I both agree that discretion is best, but if you have nothing to cover up with then what are you gonna do? Let the baby starve. I wear a tank top layered under my shirt so I can BF even w/o a cover and no one knows unless they are super close anyway.

Re: Dh's opinion on NIP

I think you know my Dh's opinion but i'll share for everyone else

my Dh would rather I nurse with a cover then have (his words) everyone else see my boobs

he is more then willing to help me out if the baby tries to throw the cover off of us.....

and he used to care about where I nursed but since having #2 really doesn't care anymore (now it's just the extended nursing that bothers him....sorry of topic)

my family, would rather I cover up, but at their house I dont...I will warn my BIL's that I'm nursing b/c it embarassing them just waiting for my sisters to have babies and nurse we'll see how fast they change their tone

oh and my one Sister....supports me when/where/how and how long with nursing 100% me and another mom has taught her well

Mine too. How extended? What are his issues? I guess this is offtopic but, it is creating a tiny bit of discord in my house. He is very supportive and is a formula snob but, he dosen't get why we are still doing it. He keeps saying we weaned from formula (ds1 was ff and dd1 was half and half) at a year. And he asks why I don't like him drinking cow milk.

Okay, I'm done hijacking, again.

Re: Dh's opinion on NIP

My DH is completely supportive. His brother told his wife to go to the car when their DD was young (we lost an infant, but had gone through a BFing class, so he knew why it was beneficial). So, his wife up and left him at the restaurant. LOL, DH lectured him the entire way home.

Re: Dh's opinion on NIP

Don't worry about the hijacking, I'm going to have to deal with it soon, not with dh but with everyone but my parents. See I think its the Marine part of him that wants to avoid confrontation when it comes to NIP. When it comes right down to it and she is hungry and there is no cover, he doesn't care but if its avoidable he would rather me be as discreet as possible. Eventho most ppl don't even realize I'm nursing until they look at my boobs, or the wiggling monster attached

Re: Dh's opinion on NIP

dh is very supportive of me nursing wherever I need to. If we are in a public place with lots of people he will offer to get me something to cover if I want, but if I say no, he's ok with it. I think we're pretty discreet.
9 out of 10 times I don't cover up because it's harder. If you don't like it, don't look! and if you're looking, you're not going to see much anyway!

ETA: we were out last night and quite a few older men commented about how sweet it was that ds could fall asleep with all the noise! they didn't even realize that he was eating, not sleeping, and I didn't correct them!
