I wanted to breastfeed my little girl not only because of the health benefits, but because of the incredible bonding experience. I nursed my oldest daughter for her first year and I absolutely loved every second of it. Breastfeeding doesn't require a ton of gear, but having BeBe au Lait nursing covers sure come in handy.
When I first started nursing I was terrified to do it in public. I tried to schedule all of my outings around her schedule so that I could only nurse in the privacy of my own home. As the time went on I realized that it wasn't practical for me to to work around her schedule all of the time and I was going to have to get over my fear and nurse in public. I immediately went to the store and bought a nursing cover so that I could nurse while in public and still be covered up.
When I had Avery I used the same nursing cover that I used with my oldest daughter Harlan. I did this to save money and I honestly thought that all nursing covers were the same. Boy was I wrong. I probably should have done a little research before I bought my first nursing cover, instead of buying the first one that I found.
When I was offered the Bebe au Lait nursing cover, I couldn't wait to try it out. Avery is nearly three months old and goes with me everywhere. My nursing in public fear is long gone now and I nurse on demand no matter where we are, so a great nursing cover is a essential item for my baby gear.
The first thing that I noticed about the Bebe au Lait nursing cover was how big it was. My previous nursing cover was quite small and I was always making sure that I was fully covered. This is not the case with BeBe au Lait. The nursing cover covers the entire front part of my body so I never have to worry about exposing myself when nursing.
The other feature that I fell in love with was the patented RigiFlex neckline. Unlike any nursing cover, all BeBe au Lait's nursing covers feature Rigiflex technology. The Rigiflex not only allowed me to clearly see Avery while I was nursing, but it is also a great safety feature as it promotes ventilation.
Bebe au Lait is also known for having stylish nursing covers. No need to look drab while nursing in public. They have a variety of styles for every mom. I received one of their new lines, the Oxford. The Oxford has light blue calligraphy against a backdrop of slate gray. It really is stunning and it makes me even more proud to be able to nurse in public.
Another great feature of the nursing cover is the pockets on each side of the cover. They are great to store nursing pads. The pockets are made from a thicker cotton so they are great to help with clean up after nursing.
The Bebe au Lait nursing cover exceeded my expectations and made me realize that not all nursing covers are created equally. Bebe au Lait has features that are far superior than any other nursing cover I have tried before.
