Older babies that nurse may be bothered by being covered up in public when they are not covered up at home. They enjoy looking at their mother lovingly when nursing and just want to see her face. Many times an older baby will grab the blanket that securely keeps you discreet and yank it right off, exposing you in public. One way to prevent this is by tucking a thin blanket into your brastrap on the side in which you are nursing so that the upper part of your breast is covered, yet your child's eyes are not and they can see your face. The other end of the blanket should be tucked under your arm so that it holds the blanket in place. If your child is a very strong tugger you can always tie the first end into your bra strap just to be sure.
