Bebe Au Lait Nursing Cover Review
Recently, I was sent a Bebe Au Lait nursing cover in Chateau Silver to review. Even before I opened the package, I could tell how beautiful the print on this cover was. Bebe Au Lait has their own exclusive prints and has designed them with mom in mind. Just one look at the different prints they make, and you can see how much care they put into making lovely attractive prints. Breastfeeding is one of the most beautiful gifts that you can give your child. While breastfeeding is an art, it is nice to have a cover that is just as beautiful as the gift you are giving your child.
Whether you are using a cover because of your modesty or whether it is because others around you are uncomfortable with you just whipping out the breast to feed your child, this cover provides comfortable protection for both you and baby. The cover is made of a soft 100% cotton fabric which is light and breathes easily to keep you and baby covered but cool.
This cover also has 100% cotton terry cloth pockets on the inside bottom corners of the cover. These are perfect for nursing pads, pacifiers, etc when you are nursing and can be a quick and easy burp cloth for those little spit ups.
The most unique part of this nursing cover is the neck line. We have all been there…you are using both hands to get baby latched and you cannot see what you are doing because the cover is in the way. Bebe Au Lait has brilliantly put a rigid boning around the neckline. This makes it possible to use both hands and still see baby. This also promotes bonding since baby can see you as well. Also, this allows for more ventilation. While the boning allows for you to see each other, it does not stick out far enough for others to see down your shirt. And with the adjustable neck strap, you can raise or lower the cover depending on your stature, etc.
The best part of this cover, its generous size. As a plus sized mama, I am always worried that One-Size items will be too small. This cover is generously sized and I find it roomy enough for me, a boppy, and a baby to fit under and still maintain coverage. Perfect!
Additionally, this cover can be used for multiple other purposes such as carseat or baby carrier cover, sunshade on the stroller, as a blanket, changing pad, etc. The possibilities are endless!
This cover washed well with no wear, tear, fading, etc. Also, the boning in the neck, which I was concerned about, had no trouble in the wash. It came out perfectly with no poking through the fabric, no problems, and went right back into its rounded shape.
Overall, I really love this cover. It is simple, yet has everything you could want! The beautiful prints, the terry pockets/burp cloth, the rigid neckline, the adjustable neck strap, and the generous size! It all adds up to one great nursing cover that moms will ask you about!
