I whip it out Click here to enlarge If I am tired I will go get the keys for the nursing room at the mall and relax in their kick ass rocking chair though. Other then that DD has been nursed while walking about the mall, walking about Walmart, grocery shopping. If she needs to eat then she does. I always make sure I am wearing a shirt that makes NIP less obvious but I don't obsess over whether a bit of titty flesh is showing. In Walmart alone I hardly think a quick peek of my breast is going to be the worst thing a kid could see. The kids are the only people I worry about too, adults who have issues with NIP can feel free to share their concerns with me Click here to enlarge

I'm pretty much a whipper outer too. I could care less if someone saw my boob. I've got pretty nice boobs Click here to enlarge (at least until I stop nursing and then they become this Click here to enlarge )

My big thing is that no one sees my side flab. Now that's just not something people should see!

I think half the city has seen my boobahs by now Click here to enlarge I try to be discreet, but I nursed when and where I pleased. I figure that there are lingerie ads in newspapers that show as much or more skin than I was likely to show, so who cares?

Well, I've had to get accustomed to hangin it all out there, cause Gen is 9 mos, and likes to look aroudn when nursing, taking my boob with her. Click here to enlarge It is rather embarrassing to me, so I try not to do it unless I have to. I have big hooters too, so it is hard to nurse discreetly in the first place.

I try to be discreet about it, but I don't run for the car or anything. I have found tucking a blanket around the baby works better than draping. No one can see unless they look over my shoulderm and then, well I guees they deserve it.Click here to enlarge

At home, I pretty much whip it out, but in public or in someone else's house I am much more discreet - I don't go skulking in dark corners, but do try to find some place quiet.

for some reason it just seems that if my nipple isn't showing then noone will be offended!
I agree. Boob flesh is OK, and I'll show the world that all day long, but I try not to show anything else. Rosie is sometimes slow to latch, though, so my nipple is often hanging out there longer than I'd like. At home or around family member's houses, I just discreetly whip it out and hope she gets right to work.

I find that I am most uncomfortable when other people are near me, such as sharing the same couch. The mall is so wide open it doesn't bother me. I usually go to the family restroom to nurse in the nursing room though, just because I have to keep Ian contained.

At home, I just whip it out. I have a fear of NIP, but it's getting much better lately. I just pick a quiet corner and feed my dd.

Jacob has always been a very active nurser, so I've had to cope with the fact that he will flash a room at least once or twice in a feeding if I'm in public. Oh well. If someone gets offended, they don't have to look. Since coming to terms with this, I've been pretty much the "whip it out" type. What's odd though, is that I'm still very modest about much of the rest of my body. I've NEVER worn shorts, even in the summer, even in high school when I was a size 3, because I don't want to show off my legs. Since having a baby, I won't show anyone my belly button because it's so ugly now. But the boob? Here, have a look, LOL!

I used to be very concerned about nursing in public, but after 10 months of nursing I can do it most anywhere and at anytime. I feel proud to be nursing and I think it shows support to other mothers who are doing so or considering doing so. I wouldn't take my daughter into a bathroom to do it. I used to just wait for someone to come up and tell me I could not do it in public. I had a mouthful ready for them, but the world has been oddly accepting, wich is a good thing, considering my daughter wants to eat every 5 minutes and often stares longingly at my breasts with the dedication and fervor my boyfriend once had.

When HQ was smaller, I whipped it out almost anywhere. I never used a blanket, but I wear big shirts most of the time, and just refused to let people make me feel weird about it. Now that he's almost 2, we try not to nurse in public so much, partially because he has to either climb into my shirt, or haul it up off the other boobie whenever possible, and because I just don't want to get into it with every uninformed jackass on the planet about nursing such a "big kid"

I never went anywhere, because I didn't want to be confronted with having to do it while in public. Yep, I was a hermit for the first 7 months, and it was okay. At home it's a different story, I just whip the suckers outClick here to enlarge

I nurse her whenever she needs it, regardless of where we are.

I don't use any blankets, yet nothing shows.

Very few people have ever even realized that I was nursing, unless they had reason to know (like dh saying to someone looking for me, "oh, she's over there nursing the baby").

When she was distractible, I sought out quieter places though.
