When I breastfed the bambino, I became a dab hand at keeping my boobs shielded by using either muslins or her blankets. Of course, your baby can still end up moving around which is why there is an increasing number of breastfeeding covers coming onto the market.
The Mamascarf was designed by a mum who despite covering herself found that her baby kept wriggling around, plus she also ached as she missed the support of her support cushion, so she decided to design something that could take care of both needs.
Looking like a large scarf or bandana (it can be worn as a scarf too), it’s got a hidden pocket for your breast pad and one size fits all. You tie it around your neck, loop the arm through on the side where you’re feeding, adjust your clothing, slip your baby into the opening, and feed. It supports your baby but it’s not a baby carrier type support so don’t get carried away!
Available in either black or pretty blue chambray cotton for £15.99 plus direct from Mamascarf. I hope they branch out into more colours or prints!
