    Default Flying!

    I am going on a plane in less then 2 weeks and I have to sit next to a stranger on the plane. The Plane Attendant told me that they could put me in a single sit because I had to be in a sit with extra oxygen, but I am terrified that I will be sitting next to a man that I don't know and who will be staring at my boob when I need to breastfeed her. What should I do? And tips on cover up really good. I do a pretty good of not showing anything but my baby doesn't really like her face covered with a blanket. Any advice?

    Could you get a window seat so your back is against the window? Less chance of a side peak.

    I flew when my son was about 3 months old and I sat next to a male stranger 2x's, going and coming. I had my son in the sling most of the time and he just nursed and napped. I know neither one knew we were ever nursing! I thought everyone would know, but truthfully most guys are just clueless about babies in general and breast feeding specifically.
