I wasn't nursing in public for a long time because I didn't feel comfortable. You know how people are... and we had latch problems so I couldn't do so discreetly. Finally I decided to give it a go at my daughter's gymnastics, after the lady at the front desk told me "it's normal and we see it here all the time". Bless her heart! (I know one of the coaches there breastfeeds too and they let her take pumping breaks or keep her baby at work with her and nurse on demand--so cool). Anyway, so finally I get the guts to do it, but my daughter doesn't get latched on fast enough and she's worked up and it sets off her heart/apnea monitor, so of course I'm trying to get her to latch on (so she can calm down) while this super loud alarm is sounding. AH!!! Of course everyone looked and it sucked But I survived it

Good for you! I've been too embarrassed still to really do it in public. Then again we don't really venture out yet as he's so little. So far I've nursed in front of my bestie, my MIL, SIL, and of course Jacob. It's been awkward though as I can't see under my shawl and I'm trying to get him on with the shield.
I'm a pretty modest person, I don't like showing my body. Pair that with the dear if people scrutinizing me and I'm paralyzed in public. I needed to nurse him at the dr's office and requested a room to do so privately. I know u should get over it, but it'll take a while. Good thing is I'm in the Portland metro area where BFing is more acceptable than in other areas.
