Mothers should always try to be supportive of the decision to nurse or not to nurse. It is a personal decision. Your family and friends, even if they are a little shocked the first time you nurse in front of them, will get over it rather quickly. Once they have become accustomed to it, they will provide a wall of support around you. When others see how comfortable you are with nursing, as well as how comfortable those surrounding you are, you will gain their support and respect.
