For those moms who want a little discretion when nursing in public, the Bebe Au Lait Nursing Cover has got your covered–literally. It has a wired neckline for ventilation (keeping baby cool is key), which also enables eye contact with the baby. It’s also available in muslin and cotton fabric, and has terry cloth pockets for quick cleanup or storing breast pads. When things get a little messy, just throw the whole thing in the washing machine.
The Catch: Women have noted that older babies tend to pull on it or get distracted.
Some moms don’t want to shout it to the world when they’re nursing in public and thanks to the Bamboobies Nursing Shawl, now moms can have a nursing cover that blends in with their outfit as a stylish, oversized scarf/shawl. It also provides coverage on both sides so moms don’t have to worry about accidental side-boob exposure.
The Catch: Because it doubles as a scarf, this cover doesn’t have a structured neckline, which makes it difficult to maintain eye-contact with your baby while nursing.
The Balboa Baby Nursing Cover features a reinforced neckline to hold the fabric away so you can see baby, a pocket to hold nursing pads or burp cloth, and it comes in a variety of print and color options to suit any mom’s taste and style. It also features pleats at the bottom to wrap around you and your baby so it won’t fly up in the wind or expose you if your little one is wiggly. Bonus feature: it pulls double-duty as a car seat cover as well.
The Catch: Some moms complain it is too thick and can cause your little one to get pretty warm.
