As the mother of two large and very hungry babies, it didn’t take me long to lose certain inhibitions.
I have been known to breastfeed while standing on a crowded bus.
But I remember the first time I had to venture beyond the doctor’s office with my non-bottle-taking baby. The mounting sense of panic I felt at the thought of whipping out dinner in a public place.
If only I’d had a nursing cover to help my confidence, shield me from stealthy glances and keep baby’s eyes on the prize! Back then, I didn’t know such a thing existed and struggled with scarves that kept on slipping until I learned simply to feed without giving a damn.
One new cover-up on the market is the Mamascarf, a slinky piece of fabric that can be tied across your body to provide support for your arm while you feed your baby discreetly.
It’s made of lightweight cotton that’s comfy and breathable for the bubba and comes in different colours to match your outfits.
The cool thing is that Mamascarf hides your mummy tummy which is always an issue when you lift up your top to feed. There’s even a hidden pocket to store your breastpad.
Mamascarf was designed by Keira, a new mum who got fed up with the stares when she was out nursing her infant. It’s now a favourite baby bag item for mums around the UK including celebs Mel C and Leah Wood.
Mamascarf is offering a 10% discount to all Babes about Town readers.
