No offense but to put your BIL feelings in front of your child's health is wrong on so many levels. This is your child and your innocent child comes first, period, especially when it comes to their lifetime platform of health. Breastfeeding is extremely important for baby and you and to stop because it is inconvenient for someone will haunt you and especially baby forever!! Since you are so uncomfortable can you be the one to go to your bedroom? I do think that you should definitely be able to breastfeed anywhere but if it is between hiding or no breastmilk I would choose hiding hands down. Good Luck and get baby back to breast ASAP!!
Please listen to stickyfingers and anon they have some great suggestions!!
