    I suck at doing it discretely! So I've taken to doing it in the car or in parent rooms. If I'm in public completely I use what others have mentioned. The covers that have a boned neckline. Can get hot with it sometimes though! My bubs has decided he wants to feed while I'm lying down these days so that has made things even less helpful

    I have average breasts, I guess (wear a 14d, but bigger when I was feeding), and I just forced myself to not care as I found it hard to be discrete.

    It was very liberating after I just did it, and I noticed that people didn't really look anyway. It's hard initially though.

    Kmart have some great nursing tops but I'd wear a nursing singlet and a normal singlet, one top pulls up one pulls down, no one can see anything, but eventually when you do it for long enough you just don't seem to care anymore xx good luck your doing a great job

    Thanks ladies! I like the idea of the breastfeeding singlet then a normal top over it. I will definatley be on the hunt for some of those!

    I suppose I always thought that I SHOULD be covering up...like it was something people didnt want to see...but it seems like people 'generally' dont mind? Of course I dont sit around half naked flopping everything around but if I dont have to wear towels, etc over both of us it would make it easier!

    Thanks for the great advise!

    I have small breasts, so I have always found it really easy to feed discreetly. My DS's head just covers the whole thing lol. I have heard people recommend the doubling of singlets though, for those with bigger breasts.

    If you don't care about letting other people see then just go for it - don't cover up on behalf of what others might think. I use a cover in public because I get pretty embarrassed because I have small breasts. In the company of female friends though I just go for it.
