Re: do you cover up while NIP?

I have never covered up. Nursing my 5th now and she loves to push my shirt up high. Most times I don't even realize it. Then I see how exposed I am. I push it down telling her Mommies breast is cold. She will usually listen. I am sure people get a good view while latching on and off too. Who cares? After nursing so long, you really don't care. As long as baby is happy, I am happy!

Peace,
Cindy

Yes, the fumbling to undo the bra...and the checking to see which breast I did last! I just imagine that no one is ever looking at me. I think they get more interested in my children.

Re: do you cover up while NIP?

nope i dont ever try to cover anything, i dont expose myself, but if some boob flesh is showing above my nipple, oh well, you see more on the display pics in windows at the mall. i usually nurse in the sling or the mt and noone can see anything anyway. we were actually out to dinner hte other day and i had ds in the mt and the waitress was fawning all over him and had no idea he was nursing, or at least she showed no signs of knowing!

Re: do you cover up while NIP?

Yes, I do (did) cover while NIP. But by that, I mean that my breast was covered and no one was seeing flesh. Sometimes we nursed without a blanket, but it was when we were used to nursing and I could just pull my shirt down to cover.

My reasons for doing 1) I don't want everyone to see my breast 2) While it is my right to NIP I don't feel that I need to make those around me uncomfortable while I do it. 3) I feel if I can demonstrate respect for those around me then it will change people's feelings about NIP

Just because there's a bunch of flesh on tv and billboards doesn't mean that the majority of people like it or are comfortable with it. It means that the people with the money want to show as much flesh as possible.

Re: do you cover up while NIP?

With my first baby, I was sure covering up was the thing to do, so I bought a cover. I wasn't uncomfortable with my boobs or people seeing them even, but thought you should cover up, because they made covers for it. But, after the first time trying to get Jordan to latch on while he's shoving the cover in his mouth and screaming and grabbing and pulling, I said to hell with it. That was when he was about... 3 mos old (didn't go out much before that). Now, even if I'm in a grocery store packed full of people, I'm not shy to whip out my boob and feed my baby and I don't fiddle with blankets and all that other crap.

Re: do you cover up while NIP?

I only cover up any exposed breast, my dd hates having her head covered. If she is being distracted I might "tent" the blanket over her so she will concentrate on the task at hand. But, maybe TMI, I have areolas the size of saucers. For some reason I don't mind if people see boob, just don't like show off the other bits.

Re: do you cover up while NIP?

I don't. Well, I cover my belly when it hangs out! I haven't ever covered Logan, and he's latching himself on now, so I just pull my bra up, and get him into position, then pull my shirt up quick and he latches on before any thing can be flashed. He will pop on and off (like in the dr's office the other day) when he hears people talking, he's nosey. I've never had an issue with a little boob showing, I'm feeding my kid. However, I would be totally embarassed if I didn't have anything to cover my belly.

Re: do you cover up while NIP?

Well, if we're out in public, he's always in the sling, so I nurse him in the sling usually. I don't cover his whole head, but the side of his face is covered so that if someone were looking straight on at us, they couldn't see anything, but if they were to be standing over me, then they'd see it all.

This is what I started doing. I'm sort of covered but then again not really. The sling railing covers enough so that you have to be looking over my shoulder and down to see anything.

I have a nursing shawl that I love! It's lightweight and elastic around the neck so I can peek in on my DC. They've never seemed to mind having it on them and I feel much more comfortable.
