Nurse "covered" without using a cover!
By: Kristy Kemp
We get asked a lot over at Breastfeeding Mama Talk how to nurse "covered" without actually using a cover. While we promote nursing uncovered , loud, and proudly, not all women are as comfortable. We support a woman's right to breastfeed however she is most comfortable. So I figured why not give a few examples of how to nurse and maybe you will find one that suits both you and your baby. So I asked a group of our mamas if they could show me examples of how they nurse. Luckily I had some volunteers. Hopefully one of these options will make you feel comfortable. We want all breastfeeding mamas to feel absolutely comfortable with nursing in public. It starts with what makes you and baby the most comfortable.
1.-Tank top underneath a shirt. Shirt down, tank up.
2.-Simply thread a muslin cloth through your bra strap. You can use it to cover your breast as you get ready to nurse and move it easily to latch your baby, then drape it round your exposed breast. It's also a handy way to keep the muslin to hand for any spills or spontaneous squirting I'm sure some of you do this already, I just thought if share for those who hadn't. Hope it helps someone to have the confidence to NIP without a cover.
