    I wouldn't hide it or expect other breastfeeding mothers to hide it in front of my boys. It's a completely normal and natural way to feed a baby!

    I wouldn't because I wouldn't personally feel comfortable bf in front of strangers irrespective of age...however if you feel comfortable go for it!

    Feed away. I'd say they will be too busy having fun to even notice you, and on the off chance they do I very much doubt they will have anything to say on the matter!

    Isn't part of normalising it that it's normal, so nobody is educating anyone it just is what happens, so it's up to everybody to normalise it by just doing it regardless of what other people think.

    Feed as normal.

    DS was 6 when DD was born...i fed everywhere...karate, gymnastics, school...

    You don't see much when a mum is feeding...I would perhaps be aware of them, but I would not, not feed.

    It's not about education or normalising etc...it's about you doing what you do in your home. If you are comfy, then go for it.

    I didn't breastfeed in front of DS1's friends because I knew it would embarrass him.

    It doesn't have to be a political statement. If a child that age doesn't want his friends to see his mother's boobs, why make him suffer through it?

    Well I think the parents would need to conduct their own risk assessment and decide if their child was to attend the sleep over or not considering that there was a baby in the house who may or may not be breastfed and if the risks outweighed the benefits I guess

    I agree with this . If its something they haven't seen it would be very awkward for them .

    It's just feeding a baby. It's a no brainer for me.

    For me, I would feed in room. It's not about them, but my own insecurities about my boobs!
