Breastfeeding Shawls and Covers
While some women feel comfortable nursing in public, others feel awkward. In order to make people who are around nursing moms more at ease, the latest invention is the shawl and nursing cover-up. When a mom is comfortable nursing, the baby is more apt to feel her relaxation and reap the nutritious benefits.
Society no longer shuns pregnant women and new moms, making them stay indoors and magically appear a year later with a baby. Those were times of late. Today, people who frequently travel find the need to breastfeed in public, as newborns require breastfeeding as often as every two hours. This can make running errands, going to the doctor and simple every day tasks difficult.
Thanks to nursing covers, women can not only feel more comfortable exposing less of their bodies (including post-baby love handles), but they can easily protect their clothing with maternity tunics that include burp clothes. These nursing covers are roomy and offer a great deal of privacy for nursing moms. While these may resemble a blanket, they easily affix to the mom’s neck, allowing secure privacy. With ease of washing and convenient packing options, these can be taken with any mom, stowed in a diaper bag or even double as a blanket, if need be. Some nursing covers conveniently tuck into their own built in pouch, making them simple to stow and go. Additional cover-ups include large sun hats, ensuring that newborns and infants don’t receive sunburns during nursing sessions in the park, as well as fun-print nursing colors. Shawls are also a popular option, as they resemble a roomy piece of bohemian clothing, far from the standard, colorful accented child nursing cover.
