Nursing Cover

When I had Cooper one of my biggest struggles was with nursing and keep the activity private.  We had a lot of company, people wanting to see the baby and wish us well.  I felt like I was forever banished into the nursery, to feed the baby or out in public trying to maintain my dignity.  I have seen nursing covers on Etsy and in many stores.  However instead of spending upwards of $20 for a cover I thought surely I could make one myself.  Besides anyone who knows me knows that I maintain a healthy fabric stash.  Surely I would have enough fabric to construct a little nursing cover. 

I found a fantastic tutorial on Prudent Baby and decided to try it.  In one hour I had a nursing cover.  Totally worth it.

I used the Bliss Bouquet in Teal from Amy Butler’s Love Collection

I am thrilled to get to use it and be able to feed the baby while not having to be in exile.

And for no more trouble than it was I may just start making one for all the new mothers I know.  Who doesn’t enjoy a little privacy when trying to nurse.
