I don't like NIP unless DS is covered up atleast when there are men around but DS has taken to pulling the blanket off (due to a dumb mama habit of putting a blanket over his head and letting him pull it off and saying 'boo' gosh I wish I thought that one through<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"> ). Anyway... can someone recommend a nursing cover that he wouldn't be able to pull off?

i don't know of a specific nursing cover, but maybe you could just tuck a baby blanket *around* the breast and leave baby's head uncovered?

I wouldn't be too down on yourself for teaching him the blanket game, because most babies around his age start being very interested in what's going on around them and they start resisting being covered to nurse. It probably would have happened anyway. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><br><br>
You might find that it actually ends up feeling less revealing to not try to cover up, because it can attract a lot more attention to struggle over the cover than to just nurse quietly. The only suggestion I can think of for getting him to tolerate the covering is to get a nursing necklace and wear it under the blanket/cover, so that your ds has something interesting to focus on under there.

I agree with Lisa.<br><br>
But, if you're still wanting to cover up, I think a poncho type shawl would be your best bet.

If you're hunting for a cost-effective model....try somewhere like WalMart etc. They usually sell them near where the nursing supplies are located. I think they come with snap around ties ( that go around your neck ) to keep them snug.<br><br>

If you like the more expensive covers but don't want to pay full price for them, you can often find used ones at stores like Play it Again Baby or whatever used baby items stores you have in your area.

I loved my "hooter hider" when Meg was little. All babies do get sick of being covered eventually, though- so get ready to be creative! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/winner.jpg" style="border:0px solid;" title="BFSymbol"><br><a href="http://www.bebeaulait.com/" target="_blank">http://www.bebeaulait.com/</a><br><br>
Hope this helps!

I got one of those, and I liked it but never used it (lol)... so I sent it on to a co-worker who is due with her first in about 3 weeks.<br><br>
I think you'd be able to make something very similar with a quarter yard of fabric, some "boning", and basic sewing skills.
