I have nursed in public twice so far, and once at a friend's house, with the nursing cover. Twice, I've held E in my right arm and gotten her latched on okay and made it work fairly well. The third time, I had her on the left side, and me being right-handed, it was a disaster. I was really uncomfortable the whole time and I ended up laying her on top of the diaper bag on my lap so I didn't have to hold her up with my left arm. And with C, who is very particular about how she's lined up, I haven't even tried it. I'm too chicken. So am I just an idiot who needs to practice this more, or is holding a baby up to nurse with one arm just really tough? At home, I have a setup that works great, with a few pillows, but obviously that's out when you're on the go. Maybe I'm too comfortable in my pillow routine.
Do others have a problem with the physical logistics of nursing in public? Or is it just me?
