Wear him and sneak away to nurse frequently, BUT people will want to hold him. Be prepared to tell Aunt Doris, who was just hacking up a lung, or Uncle Phil who has been blowing his nose constantly "Oh I think he's hungry" and slip away. I know in my family people don't consider themselves sick unless their unable to get out of bed while I consider the slightest cough, sniffle, etc to be the plague, at least when I have a newborn.
And Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours. We are very thankful for our little turkey!
