for various reasons, i have to use a nipple shield. eventually, i am hoping, sam will outgrow needing to use it. until then, it’s just a part of our breastfeeding relationship.
i am just not sure i can ever leave the house and nurse him in public. at least, not discreetly.
so i have a choice to make. i can never leave the house, for fear of having to nurse him and show something when trying to latch him on with the shield. or i can just deal with the fact that some random strangers might see my boob for half a second as i position the shield and then get Sam to latch on.
personally, i am leaning toward just barring it all and saying “eh, screw it.” if people don’t like it, too bad. i gotta feed my kid, you know?
