Whether you're a seasoned pro or are just beginning your breastfeeding journey, nursing in public can be stressful. You can be completely "pro public nursing" and still feel nervous or over-exposed when you're sitting down to eat at a restaurant full of people, and your baby decides they need to eat too. Luckily, if you don't particularly enjoy flashing the general public, there are lots of breastfeeding tricks to when you want to feel less exposed that are worth giving a try.
Although there is absolutely no reason to be ashamed about feeding your baby around other people, or any laws stating that a nursing mom needs to cover up (in fact, the National Conference of State Legislature stated that there's legislation saying the opposite in most states in the U.S.) it's your right to nurse your baby however you want to. If that means covering up, or using one of these methods to ensure you're keeping your boobs between you and your baby, that's totally fine.
The beauty of breastfeeding is that it's not really between anyone other than you and your child, so doing what makes the both of you feel most comfortable should be your top priority. These tricks are simple, subtle, and easy to put to use where ever you are. The next time you're nursing in public and feel stressed out, try out one of these tips to make things a little bit more relaxing for you.
