Why do you go in a different room to bf? Not judging just wandering!

I might at my inlaws house just to respect my fil. But that's the ONLY time I will, otherwise I'll just leave. I don't see the purpose in "hiding" such a natural thing. But I'm also not one to show my boobs, so I at least plan to cover around strangers and men.

Because we have teenage boys in the home. They dont need to see my breasts. Even with a baby attached.

I don't know....I don't respect anyone who does not respect my child enough to eat wherever they are so I don't get the leaving  out of respect for someone else. Oh & I dont' use a big cover but I'm still covered & even with my DDD's no one sees my boobs.

Because my husband's friends from work don't need to see his wife's breasts. :-)

I only do it when we are visting other family like my in laws and my cousin. Only because it makes them more comfterable. Wish I didn't have to specially at my in laws because there isn't really a place to sit and be comfterable while I nurse. And hate having to be away from everyone.

When I'm in someone else's home I will go to another room. DD doesn't like to be covered up when she eats, unless she's falling asleep she wants to see everything. In my own home I let it all hang out. I walk around and air the ladies hahaha! I have 2 other daughters and my feeling is someday they will have everything I have so why be embarrassed? Plus I hope they choose to BF when they have kids. And obviously hubby isn't going to mind.

I stopped hiding at my in laws because we frequently go there and I felt like an outcast. It deeply affected my feelings of breastfeeding. Lately I decided idgaf.

I don't want to hide there, and there never asked me to. I've just always done it. Honstely don't know how they'd feel if I didn't. Brigid hates to be covered so I can't do it out in the livingroom where everybody eles is and cover her up. She gets distracted while nursing and lets go to look around, and I don't want to flash everyone my nipple. Idk will most likely just keep up with the way we are doing things.

I did with my first, some with my second. Didn't with my 3rd but always covered with a big blanket. With #4 I don't leave and usually only my shirt covers my boob.

I just am more comfortable laying on a bed to nurse.

Otherwise, I don't believe in respecting irrational sexual attitudes toward breasts and I won't validate people's irrationality by covering. Call me extreme.
