  • south georgia here! I totally hear ya! it gets hoooooooot! I was too nervous to NIP at first so I would actually nurse my son in my car. with the AC on lol. i wouldnt suggest that. I would suggest you get nursing tank tops! to the anonymous responder: a small handheld misting fan is a great idea!

  • I never had an issue. I lived in Fl all my life, moved away when Becka was 18 months so I nursed. I wore loose/cool clothing, as did she. I usually was inside when we nursed but never had an issue keeping cool outside. I always had a water bottle with me and kept hydrated! :) Find shade if you are out and about. They also make hand held fans with bottles attached so you can *mist* yourself. Those are nice! :)

  • Wear a cami under your shirt. That way you won't need a blanket. Pull the cami down just enough to have room for babyto lach on. Then your outer shirt is enought cover to keep you covered without exposing your breast.

  • Try to nurse in air conditioned places. I agree about the cami under your shirt. That's what I do year round. My son HATES if I try to cover him up, has from day one. =) Good luck!!!
