While out I usually breastfeed my baby. My baby does not like being cover with ablanket andgets frustrated and does not really drink with blanket. And I do not like it anyways. I know there are law where you do not have to use a blanket. My dh does not mind. But my mom says I should.what should I do?? And what do you do???

Two shirt method is when you wear a stretchy tank under your shirt. Tank goes down, shirt goes up, latch baby:-) Keeps everything but baby covered.

I do this but only really to cover my belly. I don't give a crap if people have a problem with my bf baby and not covered. You don't like it look the other direction.bf in public is completely within my rights. and the tank underneath is my tank that sucks in all the fat and makes my belly look less jiggly

That's why I do it lol. My son is almost 17 months and he likes to pet my boob while he nurses so if I pull the shirt down to cover my boob he pushes it back up:-/

I'm lucky to live in a state that's very supportive. The laws fully protect my rights so I don't care, it's just a boob.

Do what makes you and Lo comfortable! I breasted until 18 months, and I had no problem whipping out the boob in public :)
I used nursing shirts a lot, but having 2 shirts on works just as well.
