I have absolutely no problems NIP and have nursed my LOs pretty much anywhere that they are hungry. I use my Hoooter Hider and don't really ever feel embarrassed or awkward. But I have two etiquette questions. What do you do when you are a guest at someone else's house and would you nurse at the table with guests at your house?
Last week we were invited for dinner by people who we don't know very well. My LO became hungry and I didn't know if it was appropriate for me to just start nursing sitting across from where the other couple was. I ended up sitting on the couch in the other room, which was awkward and I thought, next time I'll just nurse in front of them. (Covered) We had the same couple to our house this week and, of course, LO was hungry right as we were sitting down to dinner (he KNOWS when we are about to eat, I swear). Normally I would sit at the table and nurse him while I ate but decided to move to the other room because we had guests eating with us. I started to go to the other room and DH told me he didn't think it would be a big deal if I nursed at the table so I did (again covered.) But that felt awkward too.
I don't really know why I'm so OK in public but in "private" it just feels weird. I guess I kind of figure in public people have the option of looking or not looking and they can mind their own business if they want. But in someone else's home they have no choice. What would you all do in these situations?
