I tend to be discreet, but nurse in public. I nursed in the same room with my baby's father's sister and brother-in-law. The sister just wanted my back turned. I could still listen in and participate in conversation. I try to not expose my breast, but it sometimes happens. I never used a cover, but many other mothers find it to work well.
Yes, expect frequent nursing with a newborn. Your husband is probably the best person to ask for thoughts/advice as he may know better than anyone here what his father would be comfortable with.
