 I always did but had a little cover up at first.  By the time I got to my 3rd child there was no cover any more :)

Yes. Because if she needs to nurse, she needs to nurse, and that becomes my first priority. She won't tollerate a cover, but even if she did I wouldn't use one, I just use my shirt and her head to cover up.

Yes I did and will again. If someone doesn't like the teeny tiny bit of skin they see, they can turn away.

Yes maam!! I still nurse my 21 month old in public and sometimes my 3.5 year old. No one can see anything anyways since they are in the Boba =) I've always nip and ditched the cover when my first nursling was 2.5 months old =)

Dd is 2 and doesn't nurse while we're out anymore, but when she did I nursed without a cover. :)

I plan too. I've always thought the site of a mother feeding her child from her own body was magical and beautiful. I know not every one does but I plan too.. I hope to be someone that people can ask about it,children and men or mothers to be if they have questions. I am very comfortable with my body and have no problem with being open about how motherhood is.

Not often anymore, but if my 20mo wants to... We do. No cover. :)
