Nursing in Public

Hi ladies! I'm looking for tips on how to nurse discreetly in public places. I have a 4 1/2 month old little boy and nursing at home is going great but I have the hardest time whenever we go out. I just dont know how to do it! I have a nursing cover (The Mommy Cover by Joia) but it doesn't seem to help much. My belly and/or back are always showing and trust me that is not a pretty site! On top of that, my little boy is so squirmy and he's always popping on and off the breast and I have to help him latch on again which isn't very easy...

Off the Formula???

I have an 11-month old who is already past his stage 3 baby food and is onto eatng what we eat, (with some exceptions). He is almost completely off the bottle and onto the sippy cup but I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions as to when I can take him off formula. He does not often get juice and when he does its diluted. He will give him a sippy cup with just water and he drinks it just like it were the formula. I do put a bottle of just water in his crib at night in case he wakes up and hes thirsty or if he wakes up before us (as...
