It's a question that has haunted me for years.
Why are so many breastfeeding covers, supposedly designed to help a mom nurse discreetly, made in fabrics that scream, "LOOK AT ME, SOMETHING'S GOING ON UNDER HERE CAN YOU GUESS WHAT IT IS?"
I breastfed two babies and honestly, I wouldn't have been caught dead in one of these things, precisely because they seem like they'd draw stares. LOTS of stares. A baby blanket in an unobtrusive color, or even a burping cloth, covered me up far more discreetly than a nursing curtain.
Yes, there is a nursing curtain on the market and you sort of have to see it to believe it.
I'll show it to you after the jump ... and I'd also like to know what you think of these garish nursing covers. Did you use one? If so, why?
MY ARMS! WHAT HAPPENED TO MY ARMS?! SOMEBODY HELLLLLPPPP MEEEEEE!
Chillax, woman, you're wearing a nursing curtain. No, this won't attract any attention the next time you're breastfeeding in public. It looks completely normal.
Here again, we have a garish, clownlike nursing cover to contend with. Because apparently, once women have babies, they are drawn to tacky patterns like moths to a flame ...
Um, HELLO. PLEASE look away from the neon pink camouflage surrounding my chest. I'M TRYING TO NURSE HERE.
If you happen to like any of these looks, they're all available at NursingCovers.com
But I have to ask ... WHY? What about these ginormous tents is appealing?
