Tired of the crap, especially in a breastfeeding group..come post pics!

Posted by   + Show Post

OK realllllllly tired of people thinking a mom nursing in public without a cover exposes her breasts....I never ever do.  I never use a cover, I never expose my breasts.  WHy is this so hard for for others to do this? Why do people think breastfeeding means breast exposure? I dont pull my whole breast out to nurse..does everyone else? AM I nuts?

Post your uncovered yet unexposed nursing pics. NO boob shots, though those are awesome too..this is about the fact that you don't HAVE to do that!

Sort of a cover - nursing in our ring sling.

Since about 7 months I use the ergo instead so I unsnap the ergo up top, leave it snapped to my waist & hanging down, then nurse while holding DS

She was already latched in this one. I often use a cover - though I'm not sure why anymore. Just habit mostly. I tank top you can pull down and a shirt you can pull up is key. I generally kind of stick Annabeth's head under my top shirt a bit until she latches and then move it back.

I can't watch it...what is the video of? I genuinely want to see someone latch their baby without showing anything so I know the trick, lol. Maybe it's just because Eleanor is so young, but getting her to latch sometimes takes some work...

I've seen plenty of people NIP who don't show anything, but I've never seen the latching part. I hate the stupid covers.

 I actually have a video. I'm not sure this will repost because I can't see videos from here. This is an influencer video I did. Hope you feel appropriately violated!

This is what I do all the time. I nursed my son for 18 months and I'm nursing my 5 week old now. At most my nipple mayshownfor a split second while I put my nipple shield on or off but I'm getting better with that

Quoting twogirl91:

I don't have any pics of me breastfeeding, but during the summer I always wore two tank tops so I could pull one down and then other one up so no one could even see my boob.

Savin a spot for when I'm on my home computer. I never use a cover and have never exposed my breast in public.

love the pics!  i only have one pic of myself breastfeeding and it shows too much for this post :)

i just HATE how people on here use the phrase "whip it out" like a womans breast is a weapon....drives me nuts!  this country is so screwed up....if a womans breasts are displayed for sexual purposes its perfectly fine to see them but god forbid they are used to feed a child like nature intended.

I don't have any pics, but I am like all the other women who said they hate it when their bellies show. I am not nursing atm, but I will be again soon! I know there is always a small flash of nipple, but the main thing showing (unless my shirt was waaaay too small) was side boob. And that was still less than the cleavage on many women lol. I love how many women have pics of them feeding their children! =)
