One of the most essential items for my breastfeeding journey would be the nursing covers from Udder Covers. If you guys don’t already know, I am prefer direct latching to pumping of the breast milk. Direct latching is fuss free- no bottles, no need to sterilise, no need to heat up the EMB(expressed breastmilk). Perfect for someone who is as lazy as me. 😛
The thing about direct latching would be that I have to nurse it public at times when I head out with Baby Megan. Breastfeeding is a personal choice, so is using a nursing cover. I know there are advocates for mothers to breastfeed freely. However, for myself, I am much more comfortable using a cover when I am nursing in public. I feel that all my 3 babies are better able focus on their latching under a nursing cover. They can be distracted when we are in a public place and stop nursing when something catches their eyes. So, nursing covers is for me. Not just any, but the ones at Udder Covers are fantastic!

One of the main pull factors for me would be the beautiful prints they use for their nursing covers! The designs they have at Udder Covers are so gorgeous! No kidding. They are of wide range of designs- the romantic florals, classic black, white, grey, soothing marine blue hues and so much more. (Just click here to look at the lovely designs!) Mummies, we are spoiled for choices at Udder Covers.
The product itself is nothing short of excellent. Definitely designed and made with mothers in mind. The cover is big enough for me with my 2 month old Megan, as seen from the picture above. The measurements (not including the strap) are of the cover: 33.5″ wide x 24″ long, which hangs to my thighs and can wrap around my upper body.
Material wise, it is made of 100% breathable cotton. The material used for the nursing cover is thin. I suppose the material was intentionally chosen so that the baby hiding behind the cover would be able to breath and that there would be better air ventilation. I have also washed it(once) in my washing machine and so far, there is no shrinkage.
Udder covers uses stainless steel(no worries about rusting!) d-rings which allow a fully adjustable neckline. The most important thing for any nursing cover would be having the rigid neckline bows which allows me to have direct eye contact with Baby Megan. The nursing covers at Udder Covers are easy to store. They can easily fold into a small flat size(as seen from the second picture on this blog post!) that we can carry along in our diaper bag. The rigid neckline bows are very flexible, allowing you to fold it as well.
