For a breastfeeding mama, a nursing cover is a MUST HAVE for the first year. Whether nursing in public or simply looking for a little privacy at home, a nursing cover will become your best friend. I can safely say my nursing cover was well worth the cost as I used it nearly every day for months with each baby. I bought my Hooter Hider from Bebe Au Lait before my son was born – so exactly three years ago – and have used it with two children (and, am still using it actually). I fully admit that part of the reason I bought it was the name “Hooter Hiders”. But, if you’re not a fan of that name, you can stick with the Bebe au Lait Nursing Covers collection.
Hooter Hiders vs. Bebe au Lait Nursing Covers
Claire [Ekelund] decided to create her own nursing cover, the Hooter Hider (dubbed so by an outspoken male friend): an easy-to-use, machine washable, multi-purpose stylish cover designed with Baby and Mom in mind. … For almost 2 years the company was called Hooter Hiders. However, as the business grew, [the owners] felt the company needed a more refined name to reflect the sophisticated elegance and good taste the company strives to embody: Bebe au Lait. The already loyal following of Hooter Hider fans, however, called and emailed, “It will always be the Hooter Hider to us!” … For that reason, the beloved name was kept and now the same fashion-forward nursing covers sell under two brand names: Hooter Hiders for the tongue-in-cheek and Bebe au Lait for mommy chic.
Hooter Hiders New Designs
Hooter Hiders recently re-launched with all new fabrics and new designs. The Ruffle Design is simply adorable. Available in four patterns, the Ruffle Hooter Hider has a ruffle of the same fabric along the top and bottom of the nursing cover. It adds a little whimsy and girlieness to the standard style. The Pocket Hooter Hiders have a small triangular pocket on the outside of the nursing cover to keep something convenient at arm’s reach. I just love both these new designs and think they are a great way to set Hooter Hiders apart from other nursing covers.
Bebe au Lait Nursing Covers also added a couple new patterns that are, in typical Bebe au Lait fashion, bright, bold and very easy on the eyes. Capri is turquoise with brown and cream flowers and details, and Marmont is various shades of blue.
Bebe au Lait Nursing Cover Features
- Rigid neckline that provides shape to the top, allowing you to see baby
