I used to cover in the beginning, then I learned the two shirt method so I would cover just until I got her to latch and then uncover with just the 2 shirt.

2 shirt. If I'm wearing a tank top them I use a blanket. Not to cover his whole head but just put it where a second shirt would be.

I don't see how ANYONE can do the 2 shirt method. One shirt is plenty hot enough for me! I like to find a nice, quiet spot that I can sit, make sure there's no one/not too many around to get the kid on the boob, then have at it. She won't do the cover anymore at all.

2 shirt or nursing room... But that's so my older kids can be contained while I nurse. Not for privacy reasons

I do whatever depending where I am. I don't use a cover anymore. I used it when ds was a newborn and just learning to latch. I can be pretty discrete, most don't know I am nursing. I always feel bad when a new mom is trying to use a cover, hidden in a corner looking all worried and awkward. I want to help.

I don't use any of those, I just lift my shirt and nurse.
