I hate nursing in public (HATE IT) and I’m bad at it. Case in point……on my flight to Seattle a few weeks ago I was trying to secretly nurse my new baby before we all boarded the flight. So I picked a semi-uncrowded spot…and then of course right when I start trying to nurse, a couple of suit wearing men came and sat across from me. Right across from me. So I tried to act like I wasn’t nursing (not possible) until….the blanket came down. ALL the way down. So there I am with my goods hanging out and those poor men trying to look away. And to make it even better I had one of those stupid nipple shields on……………….awesome. So my face turned bright red, baby was screaming at me, my 3 year old was about to pee his pants, and my husband looked at the two men and just shrugged.
So after that fun experience, I finally decided to spare the suit wearing men of the world a peep show and make myself a nursing cover. Lucky for me Amy made this great tutorial right before I made it….I think it was a sign from the heavens. (thanks Amy!)
