Afraid of judgement for NIP

My confession is I am afraid to NIP. I am 6 mo pregnant and despite this being my 5th child, I have never done it! I actually just saw a mom NIP for the 1st ever last week so it's definitely not a common practice in my area. Everyone in my family believes you need to cover yourself or go into a private room to nurse. My DH's family makes fun of his exwife for NIP and talk about how awful it was and embarrassing for my DH. That makes it even less of a possibility for me to even try. I feel uncomfortable just thinking about it, but knowing that even if I got the guts (or desperation) to try it, I'd be too afraid because I don't want to be the butt of their jokes and offend them knowing how they all feel.

Don't ever be ashamed of such a natural and beautiful experience of nourishing your baby! I did not bf my first but in currently bfing my 3 month old and we do in public all the time. Most people don't notice Au all and those that do usually just smile :)
