Re: Do you cover up when NIP?

Nope. I have flashed WAY more skin trying to juggle an infant, nursing pad, shirt and blanket all while trying to keep ds from pulling off the cover.
Now I just descreetly pull up my shirt and hold it w/ my hand (hand also blocks latch) so I can pull it down if ds pops off. MUCH more simple.

That's how I am.

I only cover up while I'm getting Lucas latched on, I guess since my boobs are so large it's awkward for me to be discreet. After he's latched though I uncover him.

Re: Do you cover up when NIP?

i usually have a blankie, but it's more to help dd concentrate/block out bright lights when she's tired/give her something to play with, and cover my belly. less boob skin shows when nursing than shows in my v-neck sweaters, so i figure people can deal with that. the exception is at public events/places near where i teach where my highschoolers may be. then i'll use the blankie a bit more.

I did with dd until I got the hang of it, and will with my new dd until I get the hang of it again, just so everybody doesn't see me trying to point and aim!

Re: Do you cover up when NIP?

my family doesnt like it so i cover at their house but only cause they manage to make me feel uncomfortable enough when I am doing it by yelling at me to cover up (mostly my dad)

out at a store or Post office or mall I just whip it out when he needs to nurse but keep my shirt down lower than I would at home.. but lately my baby has been easily distracted, and I cant get him to nurse in public very often so we go to the car lately.. only cause I need him to eat and there is nothing fun to look at in there. lol

yea I could care less about one of the size E twins popping a flash to who ever but I am embarrassed about my blubber stomach and love handles when my cami rides up lol.. what also is a pita is that I still have to wear nursing pads as I have OALD and over supply.. they always crumple up inside my cami when I pull it back over my boobie.

Re: Do you cover up when NIP?

I never cover up because both my kids (when DS was still nursing) just pulled off the cover anyway...not worth the space in my diaper bag to put something thats just gonna be pulled off.

I have nursed in the mall, at the US mint, at the Liberty Bell, on lots of nature trails in the middle of NH, gondolas, tops of mountains, playground etc....

Never so much as the bat of an eyelash.

Re: Do you cover up when NIP?

Always!!!!, but only my belly I would hate to frighten somebody. I do cover at church sometimes, but just because it makes my DH uncomfortable (he's fine with it anywhere else though).
