I just feed whenever. If anyone has a problem with it, they can move. I'm not very outspoken about many things, and don't usually stand my ground, but on this I do. Luckily I haven't had any issues with NIP anyway.

I definitely agree. If baby is hungry, baby eats. I try to be a little discreet, but it's totally for other people.
I did stop NIP around the time they turned 1, though. It started feeling awkward for me, maybe because my kids are so big and look older than they are. I don't mind nursing a toddler, but I'd rather not hear everyone's opinions on my decision to do so. It's not terribly uncommon in my area to BF until 2 or 3 but I've only seen a toddler NIP a few times.
big boy 12.8.07 @ 39+2 7lbs 8oz, 20.5" BFed for 13 months
middle boy 8.12.09 @ 39+4 7lbs 9oz, 21" BFed for 13.5 months
little boy 4.26.11 @ 38+4 6lbs 14oz, 19.5" BFed until 26mo and restarted at 30mo!
baby boy 10.25.13 @ 41+0 8lbs 15oz, 21.5"

Yes, I love muslin blankets for NIP too...but I only bother if I'm in an especially awkward situation like at a work event for DH, or around older men who might be especially awkward or lecherous about it. Then I might find a quiet corner or another room and try to be extra discreet. Around family, friends, and true out in public? Look, I'm not waving my boobs around, I wear clothing that makes it easy to be subtle and quick, and I might kind of turn away a bit during latch on, but that's about all the measures I'm taking. I also nursed in my RS a lot, which provided some natural protection.
(Most memorable NIP experience: in the RS while literally running alone through an airport to make a connecting flight when DD was 2 months old!)
