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 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.
