My dh comes from a small community like mine where everything is closed minded. Although he's trying to respect me we do run into trouble with bf. He feels i should leave the room to feed especially if there are other males around. Although i'm getting better at feeding in public (when he's not around), he has convinced me to stand in the stall of a public bathroom to nurse! The other day when we were at Sunfest he stood infront of me with a blanket and continually tried to cover any section of my breast that was showing (he says people are looking at me). He just doesn't feel comfortable with me breastfeeding in public...i've tried telling him "it's natuaral that's what they're for!" or "Don't worry people are not staring" and even "I don't care if the look, I'll tell them to take a picture it lasts longer" which obviously worked against me. I'm trying to learn to feed in a wrap but it's taking longer than i like. Does anyone have any suggestions on how i can help my old fashioned dh calm down about breastfeeding in public & around friends and family
