Bebe au Lait Nursing Covers ... chic and discreet for the nursing mother.
Bebe au Lait Nursing Covers are an award-winning nursing accessory that provide a chic and sophisticated way to nurse discreetly. Nursing in public has never been this easy - or beautiful! The Bebe Au Lait nursing cover is easy to use with an adjustable neck strap and a unique boning that keeps the cover open at the neckline so that mother and baby can continuously make eye contact while nursing - an essential part of mother and child bonding & attachment. With a nursing cover-up a mother can breastfeed in public without feeling self-conscious, and for some, this can mean the difference between a successful nursing relationship or the end of one.
Available with the Bebe au Lait label, the Hooter Hider label or in an organic design called Simple nursing covers.

We believe breastfeeding is beautiful. We also know that many new mothers are modest, and nursing in public may be uncomfortable for you. Nursing covers help to alleviate this nervousness, and provide the new mother with a way to feel beautiful and proud nursing without having to worry about the wandering eyes of passerby's. Being able to nurse your baby in comfort and privacy whether you are on a plane, spending time with friends and family or out at a restaurant with your partner is important for any mother.
Nursing Covers Help Mom Gain Confidence with Breastfeeding
For many new mothers breastfeeding in public causes apprehension and a nursing cover-up may help ease these feelings as they provide a safe, discreet and comfortable way to nurse baby without feeling self-conscious.A positive start to breastfeeding can be a trying task. While nationally 73% of new mothers will at least initiate breastfeeding, more than 40% of nursing mothers in Canada will stop before their baby is three months old. These statistics are staggering. Heath Canada recommends exclusively nursing for the first 6 months of a new baby's life and continuing to breastfeed up to two years and beyond (Heath Canada Breastfeeding Recommendations).
A mother that is too modest or embarrassed to breastfeed in the company of others may choose to supplement with bottles or formula when they are not in the comfort of home. This may cause numerous issues that could risk an otherwise successful nursing relationship such as a reduction in milk supply, the increased possibility of pain from engorgement, and nipple confusion. With Bebe au Lait nursing covers you can breastfeed anywhere with confidence and ease. Nursing covers provide privacy during breastfeeding while allowing eye contact between mom and baby. They take the anxiousness out of breastfeeding in public - and mom looks chic and sophisticated while doing so!
As proud breastfeeding advocates we are so pleased to be offering the Hooter Hider by Bebe au Lait through our online catalogue of fabulous finds to help the nursing mother.
Breastfeeding in public with ease, comfort & style.
WARNING: As this product is designed for use in close proximity to your baby's face, please exercise caution. Monitor your baby during use to ensure that the nursing cover does not interfere with baby's breathing. Never leave a baby unattended with the nursing cover as the neck straps could pose a strangulation hazard. Supervision is always required.
Bebe au Lait or Hooter Hider Nursing Covers?
Hooter Hiders was the original nursing cover-up company - the "baby" of the husband and wife team behind the brand. As the nursing covers grew in demand, mom and dad wanted their baby to grow up into a chic company and she needed a name to fit her style - Bebe au Lait. An already loyal following protested that the name Hooter Hiders stay - 'it will always be the Hooter Hider to us' they said. So, mom and dad decided to offer the same product with a choice of logo - Hooter Hiders for tongue-in-cheek and Bebe au Lait for mama chic. We offer both brands of the award-winning nursing covers, Bébé au Lait and Hooter Hiders. Please note: there is no difference between the brands except for the name on the labels - they are the exact same fashionable, high-quality product. Whether you choose a 100% cotton printed Bebe au Lait or Hooter Hider nursing cover, or a 100% certified organic cotton linen nursing cover from their new Simply Organic line, Bebe au Lait nursing covers won't let you down.

Fun breastfeeding 'cover' Review by Lorraine
Quality Price Value
A great product for women who want privacy while breastfeeding in public, or for babies who are easily distracted during feeds. Lots of fun patterns and the shape allows baby and mommy to have eye contact during nursing. A simple product but very effective. (Posted on 7/1/10)Would you recommend this product to a friend? Yes
Not a necessity but nice to have Review by Shelagh
Price Value Quality
I'm generally comfortable nursing in public without a cover. However, these can be great for a baby who's distracted by a lot of people or movement and won't settle down to nurse if you're out in a busy place.Would you recommend this product to a friend? In the right circumstance.
They're also great if you need to wear a dress, which usually necessitates pulling one side down and is a lot less discreet than lifting a shirt. I know there are great nursing dresses out there but they can be awfully pricy and having a cover means you can wear whatever dress strikes your fancy without having to worry about how you'll feed your baby in public.
The best part is being able to see the baby while nursing - I had an infant who liked to pop off and re-latch about a million times per feeding, and not being able to see what I was doing would have made it impossible.
Long story short, I don't see these as necessary if your baby budget is already tight, but they can be nice to have for certain circumstances (or if you just personally like a little more privacy). Pretty, too! (Posted on 1/3/11)
Helped me for quite a while Review by Michelle
Price Value Quality
I was not shy about nursing in public, but I didn't like baring my post-baby belly to the whole world, and this helped as well when I was in certain settings (work meetings, or with my dad who couldn't stay in the room otherwise) when it just made things easier. The neck is great to allow you to check your latch, etc. I had another cover before this one, and it was terrible - I couldn't see anything, and it was too small. This one is nice and big.Would you recommend this product to a friend? Yes
I had a plain white one - no distracting patterns here!
I almost forgot - loved the pocket for my breast pads - I had to wear them forever, and it was always awkward to figure out where to put them. (Posted on 1/4/11)
Great product - a must have! Review by Amanda
Quality Price Value
Love my nursing cover and find it so useful when breastfeeding my little guy in public or when visiting others' homes and want a little privacy but don't want to leave the room and conversation! :-) It's easy to put on and take off with one hand and allows me to keep an eye on the little one without having to fuss with blankets or keep peeking under the cover.Would you recommend this product to a friend? Yes
My only complaint is the patterns are very busy (didn't know about the solid organic ones when I got it - we have polka dots) and my little guy is extremely distracted by the patterns about half-way through his feed now - he's almost 4 months old. I find he spends more time touching the cover and looking around at the colours and patterns than concentrating on the task at hand once his tummy gets a bit full. Wish I had gotten a plain one! :-) (Posted on 11/25/10)
Fave baby purchase Review by SISMA
Price Value Quality
I purchased this and I use it just about every time I go out: airport, airplane, mall, people's houses...... I am plus-sized and there is ample fabric to keep me and my baby modestly covered. I have also used it as a blanket, stroller cover, sunshade, and emergency changing pad. If you intend to breastfeed in public, this is a must-have. (Posted on 1/20/12)
