I have been quite a hermit since giving birth. Although I am absolutely in love with breastfeeding, being in the public eye doesn’t make it quite as enjoyable for me. The nursing cover is a sauna, and I hate making people uncomfortable by exposing my nipple, even for a few seconds. Don’t get me wrong, there have been situations where being embarrassed isn’t an option, and it’s more important to feed my babe. But if I can avoid it, I will.
One of my solutions is to just go over to a friend’s house, instead of a very public place. This has proven to be a great ‘best of both worlds’ situation. Now, my next obstacle is trying to figure out how to have a fun day at a friend’s house, but not interfere with Chloe’s developing naptime schedule. I reeeeeally like it when she’s more predictable, so I don’t want to confuse her by breaking the routine for a social visit, but mommy needs some friends! Has anyone else experienced this conundrum? What has worked for you?
