Maybe they were, maybe they weren't, but at the time I felt like the people around me would probably prefer a quiet baby than a screaming one so I nursed in public when I had to despite my fears.
This time around I'm smarter (well really I just have a smart friend named Julie!) and I've found a fantastic nursing cover by Bebe au Lait. I just love it and I was able to nurse in public tonight with complete confidence! It hangs around my neck so Sydney can NOT pull it off and is made of enough material to ensure discreet nursing. The material is thin (in fun designs!) and neither Sydney nor I get hot. And the best part - a firm edge that allows the cover to stick outward a bit making it easy for me to look down and see Sydney while also retaining complete coverage. The corner of the cover even has part of a burp cloth attached, which definitely comes in handy.
This, is absolutely in my top 10 must haves!
By the way, some time ago I said I planned to blog about my top 10 must-haves for baby (in my opinion of course). Rather than put that in one post I've decided to post separately about each one since I'm too darn chatty for 10 gadgets in a post.
2 down, 8 to go.
