For so many moms breastfeeding is new territory. It’s not something we’re exposed to before it’s our turn. We spend so much time preparing for the birth of our baby and the life of our child and we just expect that we’ll breastfeed, since that’s natural and will just happen, right? For some women it is a totally easy, comfortable place to be. Have a baby, put baby to the breast, and life goes on. For some there are major challenges they face, and an International Board Certified Lactation Consutlant (IBCLC) can help with that. For others there are minor challenges that we have to figure out how to navigate.
Right now we see all sorts of backlash against moms who nursing in public (often referred to as NIP). Let’s be real, mom can not spend months inside the house just to make sure she doesn’t inadvertently offend some stranger, right? A baby has to eat, and a mom has to feed the baby. Many moms turn to nursing covers to help them feel more comfortable.
It’s no secret if you know me, I’m not a fan of traditional nursing covers, and I do not think moms need to cover to feed their baby, however, I do think moms need to be comfortable to feed their babies. I’ve heard it said time and time again, ‘I don’t care of someone sneaks a peek of a little breast while I’m feeding my baby, but my STOMACH, ugh.’ And I am nodding my head in agreement. My post baby belly is not something I am comfortable with or want to be showing to strangers.
In comes the Undercover Mama. WHY have I not talked about these before? One of my FAVORITE things. It hooks right on to your nursing bra, so when you unhook the cup and fold it down, the Undercover Mama comes too. Genius. They’re also longer than a standard t-shirt so they can help you get back into the pre-baby wardrobe sooner.
I own the Undercover Mama in three colors. Yes three. Basic black & white, well, because they’re functional and go with everything. And the hot pink because it’s fun!
