    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going?

    My MIL is kind of weird about it, too. She seemed almost uncomfortable being in the same room with me AT HOME while Baby nursed. Since you have/had a good relationship with her, you might try to gently ask why it bothers her. Breastfeeding in public is not near as taboo as it used to be, but it could be that she still feels like it is inappropriate. Maybe she just needs to be introduced to a new way of thinking concerning BFing. GL and best wishes!
