Come one, come all!

Can you nip while bw? Also when you nip do you use a cover or would that be the opposite of nip? Again sorry for the dumb questions, I have no idea
I guess I should hold my questions for when I go to the LLL next month which I'm really excited about.
Not a stupid question at all! NIPing while BW is kinda hard at first, but if you figure it out, it's awesome! I have to admit taht I don't do it much anymore, but I did it a lot when Jane was tiny and in a sling.
And as for covering, I did at first during the days where latching takes a while, but now I don't even care. You do what makes YOU comfy, like Brie said, and don't worry about anyone else. My babies don't like having their heads covered after about 3mo, so then I just focus on either finding a place out of the way or being as discreet as possible. Nursing in the car is great for us if it's not too hot.
I NIPed today sitting on a bench next to a homeless guy, and he told me how beautiful my daughter was
. I also NIPed in a restaurant on the Pier in Seattle. I don't even think my BIL noticed (not that he would care). Overall, I have found people to be very accepting in Utah, as long as you're not waving your boobs around in anyone's face.
|That's great! I'm glad it's working. I'll have to find out more about the Boba later since Jane liked it maybe Landon will too.
You can try it out at LLL if you like.
We did a back carry a lot today. She slept on my back for over an hour with the sleep hood up and her sweet little feet in the stirrups. It was great. So comfy.
