Re: Do you cover up when NIP?

For my own comfort, I do. The only place I don't cover when I am out is when I am at my weekly playdate with other nursing moms..it makes me less self conscious about it. DD usually fights being covered but I preferto at least have a blanket over me, if not her. But I don't expect other nursing mom's to cover.

Re: Do you cover up when NIP?

I never did up until last week. We were going camping and going to be at the lake all day, DD is 7 months and gets so distracted now if we aren't laying down in bed to nurse. I bought the cover so she could pop off without leaving me exposed to the whole beach and my uncle. WELL..... I LOVE IT!!! She concentrates so well and doesn't get distracted at all. I have even used it at home now sometimes since I got it, wish I bought one a month ago!

Re: Do you cover up when NIP?

Those who say nothing shows anyway clearly don't have a size F (DDD) chest. My boob is way bigger than my babies head and trust me it would show! I NIP frequently and always cover up.

Re: Do you cover up when NIP?

I wear clothes that are discreet when nursing and I do not use a cover up. I think they just draw more attention to you that says "I am nursing!". Go and nursing any where you want, it's our right to do so!

I did with DD because she would get too distracted without one-pulling off and looking around, etc.
