Any tips on NIP?

I was out and about today and having a lot of trouble trying to bf and stay covered up some. I've been hearing about the 2 shirt method .. what is that? We arn't a ... "well off" ... family, so the cheaper the better if it includes new clothing.

Thank you in advance!!!

I always just wore a loose fitting t-shirt and it worked just fine.

The two shirt method involves wearing a tank top under your regular shirt. You pull the top down of the tank and left your regular shirt for boob access.

I use the two shirt method. I wear a regular tank under all my shirts. When its time to nurse I pull up my top shirt and boob out of the tank. Babies head covers the nipple while latching. Tank covers my not so beautiful post 3 children belly top shirt covers the top of the breast.
This is the cheapest and easiest method for me.
Practice in front of the mirror at home if your not comfortable.

I use the two shirt method as well. I have a good, comfortable sports bra type nursing bra that I bought at Motherhood maternity for about $12. I toss a normal tank top on, then a t-shirt over top of that. Pull Tank to down with nursing bra, pull t-shirt up. Everything is covered nicely. Depending upon where I am, I may still use a light blanket. But that's because my daughter is a wiggly nurser. She likes to latch, eat for a few minutes, then unlatch and look around. (Yeah, she does this in quiet rooms with no distractions as well. She's just a curious girl.)

I got nursing tanks at Target for $20. I wear a nursing tank with a shirt over it.

 My DD hates being covered up and sweats alot so mmost times she just pulls the blanket off. I usually wear loose shirts so I can pull them up, and it will covers my boob but not baby.

Never did two shirts. One shirt, lift and latch. Never pull anything down, always UP.

I rarely do the 2 shirt method, but I do like wearing tanks, I don't like having to pull my shirt up, too much stuff to deal with, I put a light blanket over her

Just do it! :)

You probably barely show anything naturally.

I usually do the tank under shirt. But I also always use a nursing cover. They don't cost that much.
