(yes I am post happy this morning....got some spare minutes! )
I have big br3asts (FF) and I find it very difficult to wrangle my boobs and DD while trying not to expose everything to the entire world so DD can have a feed.
I cant seem to get the hang of getting everything out and using a cloth to elegant drape me and bubs while she is feeding.
I dont have BFing tops as I cant seem to get any in my size and I dont want to spend heaps of money either.
How do you do it in public so everything isnt exposed?

How do you breast feed in public places?

Two tops layered, one that lifts up and the other can be pushed down. This covers my tummy and the top of my breast. HTH.

Have you considered a nursing cover? Mine is excellent. Ebay you can get some cheap ones.

Hey Boobycino! I have a question for you!
From previous posts I know you were breastfeeding your DS but stopped sometime in your pregnancy.
When you have your baby will you need to wait for your milk to come in or will you already have milk available?
I am just wondering as I had a hellava time waiting for my milk to come in and was thinking about the ladies that are already feeding and then have another baby if that new baby wont then have to work at getting milk?
Does all that make sense?
Thanks....and I hope its not too personal

Mmm interesting, I've been wondering that too, will I make colostrum again or will it just be milk?

I also have big boobs (G cup) and I found when DS was little i would use a nursing cover. But after about 4 months he wouldn't tolerate his head being covered. I hated him pulling off the boob to have a look around every two minutes and exposing my enormous breasts for everyone to see, so if we were out and about I'd feed him in the car or a parents room. If we are at a friend/relative I just pull my top up and go for it.

I always did the two tops too. My tshirt than a bfing singlet top with bra built in. But you could probably use just a singlet too

I have G boobs and I can't layer clothing to feed, andive had 4 solid years to try, my boobs are just too big. Tbh I havent tried this but it would probably be easier to use those belly band things (the ones you use for your bump while your pregnant) and wear a shirt you lift up. I usually pop my rather large breast out the top of my singlet or I just lift my shirt up, or I feed her in the ergo and use the hood as a cover if I am feeling like there are creepy people around.
