BF uncovered for the first time in public today! It was so much easier... Still a little uncomfortable for me, but hey... It's only my own discomfort that I have to get over!

Yay! Awesome, I hated my cover, was super psyched when I learned how to NIP without it. :-)

Ya! It so much more awkward grabbing your big neon sign cover and trying to be discrete. It feels like as soon as you pull it out everyone is staring. No one even notices when I bf without a cover!

I don't know if less people noticed, but I certainly felt less on spotlight! Without the cover I felt like I was focusing more on my son than the people around me, like we were in our own little world... Funny how I felt more secure when being more exposed!

I'm pretty sure the more practice you get the less people notice. The other day I walked around the grocery store bfing ds in the ring sling and literally no one knew. Except dh.

I actually nip with DD in s ring sling in church, in choir, and the choir director was also a LLL Leader-- she didn't even realize what was going on!

I'm due with #3 in a week. I hope I feel comfortable enough this time! I bought nursing tanks to try the two shirt method. I'm going to give it a go in the hospital.

I wish I could do the 2 shirt method but I have a hard time with it so I always cover in public. DD hates it, I hate it, I just can't do without the cover though =[
