Quoting Reilly and Lila's Mommy:" Smurf that. It can take sooo long to BF sometimes. And if I'm over at my parents hour for a holiday I'm ... [snip!] ... could tell my uncles were a little uncomfortable but they just looked away. Never have I been asked to move to another room..."
And this is where I'm about to contradict myself...If I was at my Dad's for a holiday or something where there are a lot of family members around, then I wouldn't have any problem breastfeeding in front of them. Only because I know breastfeeding can take a long time and I would like to visit family that I hardly ever get to see. There would be so much more going on, that no one would even pay attention to me. But if I was just over at his house, chillin' 1 on 1, then I would excuse myself and go to the next room. When I brought LO home from the hospital (and my Dad's house was "home" for the first 1.5 months of LO's life) he could see that I was getting ready to breastfeed in his living room, and he felt uncomfortable enough that he even left the house! Of course he never said anything about it, it was just a feeling I got.
Personally, I feel that if someone close to you isn't comfortable with it, then either cover up or go to another room. But that's just me. I know if I'm not totally relaxed, LO can sense it and freaks out, and I can't totally relax if I know I'm putting my Dad, my Mom or my brother in an uncomfortable situation. But if I'm around a bunch of strangers or if the only "acceptable" place to breastfeed were a bathroom, then smurf that. I'm feeding right here, right now. hahaha
