I'm looking for a nursing cover that offers a good view from above and good coverage from the side but does not go all the way around. There seem to be so many to chose from and I am unsure which works best.
I have been working with 2 blankets clipped together and it is stressful and fails often.
Can you recommend any in a price range of up to $20? I love stuff on etsy too, so etsy seller recommendations are welcome :)
I have thought about it but its seems too messy, my milk always gets all over the place, he pulls off during let down and I need to have a lot of room to catch the milk spraying all over the place :/
So I thought a cover is good because my hands are free underneath.
would highly recommend the breastfeeding poncho from http://www.naturalbabyponcho.com I use one with my 16 week old son -and hes a kicker. It covers everything, very roomy and you can see baby underneath too.... It also allows you to use your free hand which I think is brill cause I use the computer a lot for working at home. I've tried quite a few breastfeeding covers and defo think its one of the best out there on the market. Hope this helps.
I received a few of the Bebe au Lait http://www.bebeaulait.com/bebe-au-laitv.php?gclid=CI7_pZvw-KsCFct-5Qodo01xnQ nursing covers. They are thicker than others I've tried (Hooter Hiders) and have a stronger plastic rim. They also have built in terry cloth patches in the corners which have come in handy when I forgot a burp-cloth.
They tend to be pricey, but I recently found one at a children's resale boutique for only $10.
I thought the Bebe Au Lait was really well designed and I found it really helpful with my first. More expensive than you want to spend and really, even though I think the design is great they are terribly overpriced. You can pick them up gently used on ebay though.
