Nursing Cover Buying Guide
What to consider
Check that it covers not just the front, but also the sides for complete privacy.
A wearable cover that can also act as a stylish accessory (e.g. scarf, poncho), can be deployed at any moment and can be helpful in avoiding unnecessary attention while feeding.
An ideal cover should be breathable, won't make the baby feel too warm and constricted, and allows a view of the baby to the mother.
Ease of Cleaning
Choose a material that is easy to wash, dry, and maintain.

- Pick out a solid or dark colored fabric to make public breastfeeding more discreet
- Poncho style nursing covers can also be used as pram covers to prevent dust from getting in the baby's eyes, or to block out the light.
- Pick a stretchy bra or nursing bra for easy access
- Practice nursing at home with the cover in order for the baby to get used to it
