I've never known how moms cope without them!

I just pull my top up have at it. I think blankets and so on just call more attention to yourself, but if it makes someone feel more comfortable NIP, then go for it!
I also nurse wherever/whenever, even out to eat at a restaurant last night w/my squeamish ILs! I feel that the less fuss I make about nursing, the less everyone else cares. If I were to make a production, and go somewhere private or pull out a blanket, then it becomes a big deal.
Just my 2 cents.
