What To Look for When Buying a Baby Nursing Cover

When it comes to breastfeeding in public, a baby nursing cover can offer comfort, privacy, and convenience for both mom and baby. However, with so many options available, it can be overwhelming to choose the right one. In today’s blog, the moms at Bebe au Lait are sharing the key factors to consider when buying a baby nursing cover, so you can find the one that works best for you!

Material and Design

The first thing to look for in a nursing cover is the material and design. Opt for a lightweight, breathable fabric that is comfortable for your baby. Cotton blends or muslin are great choices that we recommend. Additionally, consider the design features such as a neck strap, adjustable neckline, or boning, which helps you maintain eye contact with your baby while breastfeeding.

Ease of Use

A nursing cover should be easy to use and provide hassle-free breastfeeding experiences. Look for covers that can be easily folded into a compact size for portability, allowing you to slip it into your diaper bag or purse. Furthermore, choose covers with adjustable straps or closure mechanisms, ensuring a snug fit and easy on/off when breastfeeding.

Coverage and Privacy

Privacy is essential when nursing in public. As such, make sure the nursing cover offers ample coverage to ensure your comfort and privacy. Look for covers with an extra-wide design, full coverage neckline, and generous size, providing a secure shield against prying eyes. Some nursing covers also have a rigid neckline, allowing you to keep eye contact with your baby while ensuring privacy.

Style and Versatility

With countless prints and patterns available, why not choose a nursing cover that reflects your style and personality? Look for covers that can be worn as a stylish accessory or easily coordinated with your outfits. Additionally, consider the cover's versatility — can it double as a car seat cover, shopping cart cover, or even a scarf? Investing in a multipurpose nursing cover adds value and convenience.

Equipped with this knowledge, we hope you can confidently choose a nursing cover that meets your needs while providing comfort and privacy for you and your baby. Explore the Bebe au Lait collection to find a high-quality nursing cover that checks all the boxes!
