    Oh and after a while you really won't care even if you are flashing a boob!

    It does get easier. And the more comfortable you get, the more you will notice that no one is paying attention to what you're doing anyway! Keep practicing and keep leading by example that THIS SHOULD BE THE NORM!

    It gets super easy- For me it got easier when Owen could help me support his weight. He is long and I am little with big breasts and small hands- a hard mix

    Once it got easier to hold him sans boppy , and I figured out which shirts were the easiest to NIP in - it was all good.

    keep trying you are doing great!!

    I second the nursing cover! It has made a ton of difference for me. I am bigger and I did not think the bebe au lait covered well enough so I made my own. I am thinking about making some to sell. Letme know if you are interested!

    I myself also have found that i know I have the right and I am proud that I am the only source of babys food. I nurse everywhere. The only problem i do have that make me uneasy is that i dont want my tummy showing or my fat on my back . LOL I am not back to my pre baby weight and i dont want any one looking at that LOL. The more you do it the easier it will get. It is just a boob most everyone has seen one any way. Good luck!

    Yes, it does get easier! If a nursing cover makes you more comfortable, some PP have great suggestions about different ones to try.

    My personal experience is that using some big coverup is much more obvious, and frankly annoying to both me and the baby, than just slipping a boob out and pulling your shirt down to cover anything that might be exposed. You could try practicing at home in front of a mirror to see exactly what you're showing (you might be surprised at how little it really is!). Good luck, and be proud of what you're doing for your baby!

    NIP gets tons easier, and I'm sure that one of the reasons why is because the longer you BF your baby, the more convinced you are that it's the right thing to do, and the stronger you become in your conviction that "Hell, I'm doing this!!", so you become much less bothered about where and when you NIP. Good luck to you mama, you're giving your baby the best there is!
