Never was weird for me.   You need to separate the sexual act from the biological act of feeding a baby.  Breastfeeding can release the feel good hormones in a mothers body.   Each person is different so no one can tell you how you feel when the baby is born and running errands.  I always searched out the family rooms in stores and at mall there is a family room for nursing mothers.

It may, but you get use to the changes as they change... Its not over night. If you are uncomfortable nursing in public see if they have a nursing room, or go in the bathroom or somewhere you feel comfortable being to nurse, or pump ahead of time and take the milk in bottles in a cooler.

Good luck!!

 beastmilk will stay good at room tempature for up to 10 hours... When I was watching a baby I would take the milk out of the fridge when we left and by the time she needed it in a couple hours it was warm.

I never had a problem with it. And I'd nurse the baby, run my errands and be back home before the next feeding. No problems for me there...Good Luck.

oh ok.  You just teach them how not to bite when eating.   Some babies are born with teeth.  When/if they start "chewing"you know they are no longer are hungry and need to disengage their mouth.
