really I dont' see what his deal is. maybe just get a cover.
I always use a cover when out unless i'm in a car. and I have NEVER nursed in a bathroom. and I never will. people can just stinkin deal with it. I only had one negative comment in 2 years. everyone else has ignored me, looked at smiled or told me it's wonderful

Tell him you will not be isolated because it is depressing and if he wants you to hide when you nurse, he has to hide with you.

Yes, he has jealousy issues. But when men see a woman breastfeeding, they don't see it as sexual.

I would politely tell DH that when HE has a baby and nurses HE can nurse wherever he feels comfortable! But until then you'll do what's best for the baby!

I had oversupply so milk squirted everywhere, it took me a while to feel confident to NIP as i had to use dish cloths to mop up all the spillage! Being around other nursing mothers made me feel a lot better. By the time DS was about 4 months old i could nurse him in a wrap so nobody could see, and leakage wasn't so bad.

What kind of wrap did you use?

That is what I used to do. No skin shows at all that way.
