Re: Mum's bad back
Nursing in the side-lying or reclined position may cause plugs for SOME women, but not ALL women. If you aren't having problems with plugs, feel free to use whatever position works for you! Especially right now, when you have a newborn. Newborns tend to nurse for long time periods, and that can be hard on your back. And it's not like a newborn is likely to get hooked on a particular nursing position.

but in any case I won't be able to keep feeding this way when I start to venture out in public, plus the inlaws are horrified by such unorthodox antics.
For judgmental in-laws, I suggest removing the extra blankets from the bag and draping them over their heads. No, okay, that's just fantasy. But don't be afraid to stare them right in the eye and say "Right now, this is how I need to nurse. If you find it weird, go discuss it with your son." And your husband should be prepped to tell his parents, in no uncertain terms, that they need to keep their opinions to themselves.
Coolest thing my big girl said recently: "How can you tell the world is moving when you are standing on it?"
