Making Breast Feeding Private in Public

Posted in baby gifts, burp cloths at 11:20 pm by Administrator

Most mothers view breast feeding as not only an essential means of feeding their baby but also as a means of developing and maintaining a bond with their baby. As all of us are aware, infants have their own schedules and have no patience when it comes to nursing. They want their mother to stop everything she is doing and immediately feed them. Unfortunately mothers are not always at home with happens. In fact they are often out in the public.

While some women have no problem breast feeding in public and even allowing those around to see their breasts, the majority of women prefer to remain covered. Many try to use a receiving blanket that when they bought it looked big but suddenly become very small. Others spend money on expensive tops made for nursing.

Within the last couple of years, someone came up with the privacy nursing cover concept and it has totally changed the way women feel about nursing in public. The basic concept is that it is a large piece of light weight fabric with a strap that goes around your neck so that the fabric cover doesn’t fall down. Then there is a piece of boning in the top part of the fabric that allows the mother to see down inside the cover and observe her baby feeding. These covers provide total privacy for both mother and baby.

I will have to admit I had never heard of nursing covers until my niece asked me if I could make one. She directed me to a couple of websites so I could get the basic idea of what it was and I made her one. Being in the burp cloth business, I thought that I would try and perfect my design and see if I could sell a few and add them to my product line. One thing that makes my nursing covers unique is that I use a center release buckle on the neck strap so that the mother doesn’t have to take the strap over her head to take the cover off. The response has been great so far.

I would highly recommend that any mother who is planning on nursing invest in a nursing cover. Please feel free to check out my Etsy site if you would like to purchase one of my covers or email me and I will make a custom cover.
