Question Nursing in front of company

Do you nurse in front of visitor's in your home?

I had some maintenance people in my apartment today replacing the AC unit. There is no way I would nurse in front of them, so I ended up going to the bedroom and closing the door. I trusted the guy just based on conversations we had while he was here, but I wasn't thrilled about leaving a stranger in my house unattended. I would feel REALLY weird about nursing right there in the same room as him though. Maybe in a bigger house it wouldn't be so akward in that circumstance.

I always cover up, but I've nursed in front of tons of people, mom, dad, brother, mike's mom and dad, mike's stepmom, mike's sister and brother in law, my brother, my best friend and her husband and three kids (talk about giving them a life lesson haha!), several people... I never thought I'd feel comfortable doing it but as long as I don't expose myself, I'm totally cool with it!

I nurse in front of family and friends too Brandi. I'm totally comfortable as long as I use my blanket. Preston doesn't nurse nearly as well when he's covered up, but we get by.

I've got a nursing cover for when there are other people around... I don't always use it though. I bring it to my mom's because I think my dad gets a bit uncomfortable.

My inlaws don't care much so I don't bother covering up there. And there are a few nursing rooms at the mall so when we're out and she needs to eat I just go there.
