I have a common sense practice of not bf'ing in front of other people's kids unless the parents and kids are ok with it. However my 10 year old cousin seems very curious when I bf. Twice he has walked in when I was nursing (door closed) and once when I was changing. I don't make a huge deal about it, I don't want him to think he's in trouble or anything. His mom is a methed out worthless lump so he lives elsewhere. I don't know if he's curious about breastfeeding or the female body. If its the latter he obviously needs to learn about boundaries and respecting privacy.

What do you think is the right route to take?

At 10, my guess would be option #2.

Have you asked him why he keeps walking in?

I haven't, because he tends to lie if he thinks he's in trouble/ is embarrassed. I don't think we'd get far.

I would maybe talk to his dad about whats happening, and then you two can talk to him together. If you make him feel safe and not like he's in trouble he might be less inclined to lie.

I think I would just casually bring up the issue of knocking before entering your room and maybe ask him if he has any questions about how you feed the baby.

I agree with this.
