I have been BF-ing for almost 7 months and I still am not comfortable just whipping out a boobie!! When people would come and visit I would just go in the bedroom to BF, and we didn't have too many visitors in the hospital. When we did have visitors, if the baby started fussing DH would just say something along the lines of "well, I am glad you guys got to come, but I think baby/mommy is hungry/tired/whatever so we will call when we get home for a longer visit!"
I want to BF if possible, but I also just don't think I'm one of those "whip out a boob kind of girls." And that's okay. Regardless of my comfort level, I would never, EVER stand for someone to criticize me for bfing my kids- but I really do believe that being tactful is the correct choice. If I'm not comfortable whipping it out, then I go somewhere else. I also wouldn't just whip it out (even if I were comfortable) if I were in a situation that would bring undue attention or discomfort to someone else. Being mindful of the circumstances and considerate of others would help me to feel more comfortable in the nursing/bonding environment- I think it will help me to relax and just focus on my sweet babe.
I know the BF debate is heated, and please, no snarking- I just think that we should take care of our babies as we feel comfortable BUT be mindful of those around us too. It's so hard to believe that there are still people who thing bfing is abnormal or bad.....
And I'm really happy that you have such a supportive husband. He sounds like a wonderful man.
