Sorry it took so long to respond.
We didn't go out much but when we did I used a blanket as a cover. Like we went to the mall once and I just sat on a bench by the kid play area and nursed with a blanket. As he got older, he would take the blanket off so I stopped using it. I wore a tank top under a t shirt and just pull the t shirt up and the tank top down over my boob and there was barely any boob showing, it wasn't noticeable unless people stared, and I don't recall anyone ever staring at me because I would be looking at my baby the whole time
In the beginning like when DS was small, I always wanted to go out to the car to nurse because I was uncomfortable but it got a lot better when I was used to it more. I even nursed while eating in Applebee's one day and I don't think anyone noticed what I was doing, didn't use a blanket or anything lol.
Oh, and I don't know about the whole bottle thing, I've never let DS stay overnight anywhere without me yet, and I don't plan to for a long time. He did use a bottle when I was working part time but that didn't last long.
