If you're planning to go outdoors with your baby pump some breastmilk and put in in a bottle/sippy cup whatever is convenient for your child. So if your child gets hungry just give him the bottle/syppy cup. You don't have to worry about people staring at you or criticizing you.

That is a good idea and it may work for some, but from my experience... If you exclusively breastfeed it is VERY HARD to get your child to take breast milk in anything other the mommy's breast. I'm sure you can understand. It's an easy fact to overlook.

No one will stare or criticize you if you just cover up.

I think nipple confusion is a myth propagated by the breast feeding only camp. Children have taken both all the time. Many moms are working moms. Their baby breastfeeds at home and gets breast milk in a bottle at daycare.
