Relatives & Breastfeeding
Hi all. Any tips/advice on breastfeeding around family members? I'm due mid-december and have my heart and mind set on exclusively breastfeeding if I can. The idea of feeding in public doesn't faze me all that much but I'm asking myself all kinds of questions about what do especially around male family members around, not least my dad. I don't think either of them have any strong feelings either way about breastfeeding itself - it's more the thought of them seeing more than they might like. I'm more self-conscious of making them feeling awkward than I am for myself. Do I just do what I do as normal? Will I tell them first when I need to feed or will that be making too big a deal out of it an make them feel awkward in itself? etc etc! Maybe I'm worrying about it too much, I don't know. Tips & advice very much welcome!
