As you may or may not know, Thalia and I are working on 11 months strong of exclusive breastfeeding. It has been to this day, one of my greatest accomplishments.
Just like many other breastfeeding stories, the beginning was not so easy for Thalia and I. We dealt with clusterfeeding, cracked nipples, latch issues, but we weathered it all and went on this awesome journey together.
In the early days, I remember one of my main fears was nursing in public. Mainly, my questions surfaced about the “logistics”. How do I comfortably and discreetly cover myself and the baby while nursing? Will the baby get too hot under a blanket? Will I be able to use both hands to “situate” myself?
I would fumble with nursing scarves that had awkward buttons. I tried to drape muslin swaddle blankets around my shoulders. I could never find the right solution.
Thankfully, we got an amazing product that CHANGED THE GAME!
I found The Copper Pearl Nursing Cover while wandering into a baby boutique while on vacation.
Why do you need it:
1) It’s super soft
I am IN LOVE with the feel of the fabric, soft, stretchy, breathable. It’s like wearing yoga pants around your shoulders. Yes, it’s that amazing.
2) There are so many adorable patterns
I love that they carry gender neutral patterns that are fashionable enough for mommy to wear them with her Day to day wardrobe, but cute enough to make it a special accessory to make a statement.
3) It’s a multitasker
Girl, this thing tents over your ta-tas for nursing, covers the car seat of a napping baby and slips over a highchair or shopping cart.
I have also used it as a stroller blanket and burp cloth.
If you plan on breastfeeding, heck even if you aren’t, this product ROCKS and totally worthy of a Favorite Friday!
