I feel really awfull... After days of practicing NIP in not so public places, i.e a mothering group and at a coffee shop yesterday with only two other people in the shop (one woman who did move from the table next to us to the window when she saw me nursing with a cover on even) my baby decided that he was starving while I was at a resturaunt today. I had nursed him before we left, and he had only been sleeping for half an hour, so I tried to offer him my pinky, but he was getting testier and testier and tried to suck through my shirt at one time! There were sooo many people there, every table and booth was packed, so instead of taking out my cover and feeding my poor baby, I remembered the woman from the coffee shop and how uncomfortable I had made her. I took my precious son into the bathroom and stood in the stall and fed him there. There were obvious perks to this decision, it was quiet and cool in there. But we were both uncomfortable and I couldn't help but feel ashamed at myself for hiding us away in the stall as if we were doing something wrong. I feel as though I let my child down.
