Quoting Hope;Sierra*:" We live with my mil & bil till we have enough saved up to get our own place. I have inverted nipples ... [snip!] ... then afternoon i get abt 6 ounces, then evenings i get abt 4 ounces. This is my first time breastfeeding so its all new to me."



So why do you have to hide?



Honestly, if you hate doing it, it's going to affect your supply. And you'll be more likely to fail.



I'm not saying give up,. But i would see a LC at this point for help

My bil is uncomfortable coming out of bis room even if i have the nursing cover on. I dont want to make him uncomfortable in his own house.

If you live there, it's your house too

Think of it like this:
Would you rather make him uncomfortable giving your baby the best you can (in a house that you live in as well)? Or make him comfortable (which isn't your problem) and give your baby second best?

I have inverted nipples too and breastfed for 15 months. It's not a death sentence for breastfeeding. Get some nipple shields to help pull the nipple out until you get the hang of the latch.

I pumped anywhere. I didn't care WHO saw me. It's natural and it's my babies way of eating.
I now directly breastfeed.
I took DD trick or treating tonight, and she got fussy and I ended up having to BF her while walking back to my aunts house. LOL, I had a blanket over me but I didn't care.



I think probably my whole family has seen my b**bs now and I dont give a shit.
