Everyone understands the importance of mother’s milk in a child’s development. Breastfeeding is a wonderful way to bond with your child through the skin to skin contact. Breastfed babies feed more often than formula fed babies. Babies are usually fed on demand and they don’t understand where they are. When they want to eat, they want to eat. They don’t care whether it is on the privacy of your home, or out in the open public.
When I first became a mother, I felt uneasy breastfeeding my child in public with just a blanket covering me and the baby knowing that the blanket might fall off anytime especially when I needed to change side and take the baby in and out. With a good nursing cover, now I can say feeding a child in public doesn’t mean you have to give up your modesty.
Pumping without losing modesty and style
Some mothers are exclusively pumping. Many moms go back to work full time once their maternity leave is over. The only way to keep supplying their babies with mother’s milk is through pumping.
Many corporations provide lactation/nursing rooms for their female employees. Some moms are able to pump in the privacy of their cube or office, but there are also moms who pump in awkward places like bathrooms or their cars. No matter where they pump, pumping mothers need the same level of privacy as exclusively breastfeeding mothers.
Again, with a good nursing cover, pumping moms can say that they get the privacy and security they deserve.
What is a good nursing cover?
Bebe au Lait nursing covers meet all the criteria of a good nursing cover.
It is made with a soft comfortable, machine washable material, but not flimsy. Its material is not scratchy and does not cause irritation to my skin or my baby’s skin. It has a secure loop/neckline, so it won’t fall off.
It is wide enough to cover baby and mom or all of mom when pumping. Bebe au Lait also has a towel at the end of it to wipe the baby’s mouth and materials with stylish prints/patterns.
The history of Bebe au Lait Nursing Cover
It was initially called Hooter Hider, born in 2004 when the co-owner Claire Ekelund found breast feeding in public challenging. Their nursing covers became award winning and attracted many big named media, celebrities, and stylish moms. Since then, Bebe au Lait has expanded their brands into two names Bebe au Lait and Hooter Hider. They have a wide variety of stylish and patented patterns available for sale.

They are available in the company online store here, and in the US, they are being sold in nationwide retail stores, such as Baby R Us and Nordstrom. They are also being sold in over 60 countries all over the world. Prices ranging from $35-$38.
