He is fine with me breastfeeding at home but he thinks it's inapropriate for me to breastfeed infront of anyone. I'm not saying I want to breastfeed in the middle of a busy store or anything but I think I should be allowed to breastfeed with a cover if we have friends or family over or something like that. Anyone else have this sort of problem?

I would tell your husband they're your breasts and you're feeding the baby and he needs to get a grip.

No because my husband understands breastfeeding is totally natural and not sexual or anything to be ashamed of. Your husband sounds like he needs some education about nursing.

My husband would have never had a say. Luckily he was my biggest supporter.

tell your husband not to look. You are allowed to bf anywhere...you are an adult correct?

They are your boobs.   Not his.  Feed that baby.  Tell him that when he gets breasts and is capable of lactating he can have a say as to when and where you can feed the baby.

 If you aren't allowed then he better whip his tatas out and feed the baby because that baby has to eat.

No. Is he jealous that someone will see your breasts? Get a cover with drawn on boobies.
