No need to note the time when he latches on or cover up or leave the room or hide. No need to pretend it is not happening.
It is good for you, it is better for your baby.
Nurse her when she is crying, nurse her when she is hungry, nurse her when she is lonely. Nurse her when it is the only thing that will bring her comfort.
Nurse him when you need a minute, or when your breasts are full or when you want some time to be close.
There is not a single bad thing that comes from nursing. Anyone who tells you otherwise is wrong. It gives your baby every advantage in every situation.
Do not worry that ignorance or nay-sayers might be right. They are not. Enjoy it; the time with your baby, the moments with your child, how much easier it makes bed time and fussy time and dinner time.
Put your head back, close your eyes and relax while your baby does the same. Or enjoy the moments of connection as you look into each others eyes.
Only good comes from nursing, mamas.
So nurse away mamas, nurse away.
