I attended a wedding whn my baby was 3.5 mnths old. I wore a sari so i cud feed her. And i just went to a quiet corner and used a dupatta to cover her while feeding. Nowadays u get awesome feeding bibs! Lots of moms were feeding their babies at our babychakra event in mumbai and i just loved all the creative feeding bibs/aprons/covers all the new moms had :) pls try not to be stressed out and enjoy the event!

Heya ,

One more thing ..how to take care that my lipstick dnt mess up as mera baby hmesha hath maar k lipstick fela deta hai😂

I think you should choose a comfortable dress for feeding baby and carry a nursing shawl 😊
