Re: Do you use a nursing cover in public?

I voted other... when I used to NIP I would ALWAYS cover, but once or twice mostly out of sleep deprivation I've whipped it out not even realizing there were people around. However most of the time I have to go somewhere else to nurse because he's too distracted.

so i guess i fit in all 3 categories lol

Never ever ever. I think about my mom being forced to nurse in a coat closet at her church and how sad that was. I feel I have to make a statement

I use one now with the newbie, but once he's a better nurser and has better head control, I won't.

Ditto this! Well, I use Glamourmom too, but those are more revealing. But still don't use a cover, ever. I'll occasionally shield my breast with my hand if DD decides to pull off to see what's going on - I'm not at all embarrassed to bf in public, BUT I don't like to show the people sitting next to me on the subway my nipples.

I always cover up in public, heck, I even cover up around family (or leave the room). I do it because I feel like others will be uncomfortable, I personally hate leaving the room or covering up though.

Me too! I only "cover up" if I'm uncomfortable with the people around me (like my FIL who came to town for father's day). Most of the time I just try to cover my belly.
