Bebe au Lait nursing cover GIVEAWAY!



I think one of the most convenient aspects of nursing is that you always have food with you, ready to go, at the right temperature, and in the most perfect delivery system with no mess. While some women are totally fine with nursing in public without a cover or blanket, I am not that comfortable doing so. Call me modest, but I prefer to use something to cover up while nursing in public as I am rather well-endowed and find it quite hard to nurse discreetly. An added bonus of using a nursing cover is that my easily-distracted little E can focus on the task at hand without the distractions of people walking by!

My choice of nursing covers is the Bebe Au Lait/Hooter Hider nursing cover. Sure, you could throw a blanket over you and the baby, but that isn't nearly as attractive or functional as the Bebe au Lait nursing covers! They come in the hippest, most fashionable fabrics- I can not tell you how many times I get complimented on my covers! I have the Yoko and Kimono (sadly, I think this one has been retired) patterns. If funky patterns aren't your thing, Bebe au Lait has added an organic line of nursing covers in sweet pastel tones most recently. The covers also offer a unique ribbing inside the top - so that the top curves out, allowing you to have eye-to-eye contact with your babe while he is eating; this also allows for more ventilation than just using a blanket. The cover wraps around your neck with a soft, fabric, adjustable strap, so this puppy isn't going anywhere unlike a blanket just tossed on your shoulder.

The size of the cover is very generous- larger than other brands, so it offers you the most coverage. That's something important to me, as I don't wear nursing shirts and don't like my post-baby belly hanging out for all to see! One corner of the Bebe au Lait is a small pocket covered in terry cloth - for quick clean ups and to store things like a paci or nursing pads. My Bebe au Lait is something that is ALWAYS in the diaper bag. They sure don't take up much space and double as a lightweight blanket, diaper changing pad, sun-shade on top of the infant carrier, and something for E to play peek-a-boo with in a pinch.

If you're confused as to the two different names, the company originally called the covers Hooter Hiders, then changed the name to Bebe au Lait. Fans of the Hooter Hider name were upset! So, the company makes nursing covers under both names... but the actual nursing cover is the same- the tag is the only difference! Aside from offering organic fabric choices, I wanted to mention that the Bebe au Lait company has taken additional steps in becoming more green by packaging all products in recycled and recyclable materials. Check out even more of their green efforts on their website!

Bebe au Lait has generously offered to sponsor a contest via the Gaga Greenies blog- we couldn't be more excited!
