Decent Exposure

Two years later and I am once again trying to nurse a baby while keeping up with daily activities, chores and events. This time around I have found something that makes it so much easier to nurse in public then using the dreaded blanket-over-the-shoulder-trick that just never seems to work the way you want it to.

First off I must admit, I am not a big fan of public breastfeeding. It just makes me uncomfortable and more importantly makes a lot of other people uncomfortable. I still choose the most private area available but now that I have an active toddler to keep an eye on it becomes more challenging .... so that is why I am thrilled to introduce the Hooter Hider! Okay, I know, I know, it isn't the most conservative name but it does do the trick, that is, keep your hooter's hiding. And funny enough, they too must have realized that the name may not attract all the buyers so they offer the SAME EXACT nursing cover under the name Bebe Aulait (& there is absolutely NO DIFFERENCE from the Hooter Hider, even stated on their website!) LOL!

I got the adorable spring pattern Cream Soda but there are so many cute patterns to choose from, look here and here for examples of the patterns you can choose from.

So, you may be asking, what makes theirs more unique then other nursing covers (or even the blanket-over-the-shoulder trick), I asked that question too because I am always looking to save a dime or two with two kids, one income and nice taste (LOL!). Well, to answer that question, it has an adjustable strap to wear around your neck so you don't have to keep re-adjusting or tucking in your blanket and it also has a patent-pending rigid neckline that allows Mom to see baby and baby to see Mom (this is my favorite feature on the Hooter Hider - sorry guys, too funny not to use Hooter Hider, makes me giggle much more then the classy, chic name of Bebe Au lait ... and not that you wouldn't have guessed it any way but the name Hooter Hiders came from a male friend of company owner's Ronnie and Claire.

You must check out their website. They also carry burp cloths and fun gift packages for nursing Mom's!!! And for those of you in Southern California, I purchased mine from Hush Baby in Ladera Ranch (also available at the Tustin and Aliso Viejo locations) or click here for their nationwide store locator.

I am happy to say that without my Hooter Hider we would not have been able to enjoy the long visit to the beach today. DS and DH played in the ocean and sand while DD (Darling Daughter) got to eat (privately).
