the only other places I nursed Autumn at were doctors office, in car in parking lot, my moms, doctors and my bfs house. Well, my bf tells me if I want to bring the kids to the mall today. They have a big indoor house and play structures. I never nursed in public before. I still cant do it without both hands.n (unsnappimg bra, snapping it back up). He said we could go to the park or stay home if I feel uncomfortable. Yes im uncomfortable but I dont want to be left behind whenever we go out. Any suggestions? I have a Moby Wrap but im not sure if I can breastfeed in it without anyone seeing. Its hard being discreet when you are big breasted.

I agree with above.

I got my first time out of the way good and early. 5 days old in the middle of the mall.

I knew if I didn't bite the bullet sooner rather than later I'd get too nervous about it

The two shirts method? Plus use the Moby as a cover-unwrap Autumn a bit and cover the still exposed areas.

I NIP in the hospital, in a waiting room (DDwas 4 mo). I was so stressed out that I didn't even quite realized what I was doing. No cover, no two shirts, I just pulled up my top and latched her on. Nobody gave me any look.

I'm bigger chested also and I just use the 2 shirt method and in the beginning when I'm getting the hang of it I do use a blanket to get latched. The only way to get confident in nip is to nip.

This the only way to get confident bout doubt it is to just do it. When I first started NIP I used a cover. Then I got more comfortable and we just place a burp cloth over any boob that would show. Then I mastered the two shirt method.

If you figure out how to nurse in the moby let me know. I've only tried once and ended up having to take it off and start over when we were done

I am big breasted as well, I just use the two shirt method. I do have a receiving blanket near by though because I have an overactive let down so sometimes he pops off because it is too much for him to handle.
