Bebe Au Lait Nursing Cover

Posted

Pros: good coverage

Cons: easy to move

I really only used it for a short time because my son hates having his face covered when he eats (or in general) so he just ripped it off every time. I just go out and nurse in the truck.  :/  if he wasn't so picky about it, this would be a great product.

Pros: Lots of cute prints, folds up small

I used this for about the first 5 months or so. The boning near the neck allows only you to see baby and breastfeeding. There is plenty of fabric to cover everything. The cover can also double as a stroller cover/blanket. Folds up small/compact to fit in diaper bag and comes in lots of great prints. I stopped using it around 5 months because that's when baby began to try to remove the cover while breastfeeding and it was a struggle to keep it on. But by that time she was better at breastfeeding and my nipples/breast wouldn't expose as much as they did before.

Pros: good for when around the squeamish

Cons: babe can play peek-a-boo

I really like the cover. More power to my bf-ing sisters who don't cover, but there are times when I feel like a little privacy- like when I'm around my dad, my husband's dude friends, or my sisters' fiances. I bought this on babysteals- couldn't see paying full price for a sheet of fabric. I love the print, and the wire-like top piece allows me to easily see what the babe is doing. Now that he is older though, he likes to peek out from the hider which renders it somewhat useless :(

Pros: Stays on, easy to see baby, lightweight, great patterns

There aren't many times when I feel like I need a nursing cover. I'm a discreet nurser (or at least, I try to be!) even without one. But, then there are times when it's a MUST have, such as when flying with your 3 month old and being squeezed between the baby's seat and a newly-ex-Marine. That was one day I was particularly glad to have my Bebe au Lait nursing cover!

The cover is well-designed and easy to use. An adjustable neck strap makes it easy to get on one-handed as well as to keep it there, no matter how much fiddling around it takes to get the baby situated. The ingenious thing about Bebe au Lait (though others may have copied it by now) is the boning in the top of the cover, which creates an opening that only you can see through. The adjustable neck strap means you can get the arched opening in just the right spot to easily keep an eye on the little one. A bit of terry cloth on one corner comes in handy for wiping up dribbles and small spit ups, and the whole thing is machine washable.

For those who are more comfortable nursing in public with a cover or who need it for certain, more challenging situations, the Bebe au Lait is a great choice!

Pros: large, discreet, easy to see baby

Cons: baby can lift it up once they realize it's a fun game

This is the nursing cover I always keep in my diaper bag.  After trying a less expensive one from Babies R Us, I was really disappointed.  This one is wider than the peanut shell cover and doesn't have the strange cut off corners on the top.  The wired front allows you to keep an eye on baby while she nurses as well.  There's a pocket on the inside to discretely stash a nursing pad as well.
