Baby Hates The Nursing Cover? Here’s How To Get Comfortable Breastfeeding In Public

Nursing in public can be challenging for any mom. And trying to nurse a child who loathes being covered can feel akin to putting on a two-person Cirque du Soleil performance — such are the contortions, flailing, and unexpected flashes of nipple.
