    First world problem! Not making light of your dilemma OP, I just hate that people feel as if they should hide away whilst doing something completely natural, especially in your own home.

    I would feed as normal, if parents have an issue then it's their own ignorance.

    My two main issues, as mentioned here, were parents getting upset and embarrassing my son. As Biscotti said, the parents are all aware I have a newborn so they should be aware of the risks of them seeing me breastfeed. So major concern is my son. I spoke to him about it and he shrugged his shoulders and said 'I don't care' as he does in his pre-teen way. So if it doesn't bother him it doesn't bother me.
    Thanks all for the advice.

    I wouldn't go to another room unless bub is really distractable and will want to hop off and take a look around.

    My DD2 is 13 months and I can't feed her in a room full of people, especially people she doesn't know because she'd much rather look at them than feed.

    It is your home and you shouldn't have to hide away but at the same time I don't think you should sit there and feed if you don't feel comfortable.

    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?
    Thank you

    Ummm I asked to get opinions and advice, which is what I got, and then I used those opinions and advice to come to a resolution...is that not what forums are for? If you 'don't care' why did you post a response? and as for the 'first world problem' remark by another poster if i had a real world problem I wouldn't ask for advice on a forum I would be calling an ambulance or police or a doctor.
    Why do some people get nasty when you ask for opinions???
