    Default Re: i cant feed in public :(

    I breastfed DS2 for 2 years and never felt comfortable feeding out in public. I would always retreat to parents rooms with cubicals, the car and even toilets if that was all there was.
    I just didn't feel comfortable exposing myself. I have massive social anxiety issues which didn't help either.

    I found it really hard at first. I didn't know what I was doing. DS didn't know what he was doing. It got better.

    I started by feeding just around family and close friends. Then at a cafe. Then a restaurant. And gradually as my confidence built up I would feed in busier and busier places.

    Good luck
