If you plan to breastfeed, you’ll want to know the answer to that question. Hooter Hiders are made by Bebe au Lait and they are my absolute favorite nursing covers on the market! When you need to breastfeed discreetly (and even stylishly), this is your product! Bebe au Lait actually has two lines of nursing covers- the Bebe au Lait line and the Hooter Hiders line. Both styles have the feature that makes these nursing covers unique: a rigid neckline that allows for ventilation and gives you the ability to make direct eye contact with your baby.
Your mom or grandma may tell you to just throw a blanket over yourself. I disagree. Bebe au Lait nursing covers allow you the privacy you desire, without cutting you off from bonding with your baby (or cutting off your baby’s air!) Each cover is generously sized to keep you completely covered and is made of 100% cotton. The covers have adjustable D-ring neck straps, and side pockets to store breast pads or pacifiers. Bebe au Lait and Hooter Hiders are machine washable and come in a variety of super cute prints to satisfy every mama’s personal style.
The differences between Hooters Hiders and Bebe au Lait covers are minimal. It basically comes down to which print you like best. (Each line has its own set of fabrics to choose from).Hooter Hiders have visible pockets on the front with a ruffle detail, versus Bebe au Lait’s hidden pockets (on the inside of the cover) that are made of terrycloth.
As an added bonus, Bebe au Lait and Hooter Hiders retail for only $35! I think it’s a great price- especially since the covers are nicely made and are multi-functional. I’ve seen moms using them as blankets and as sunshades to protect their baby’s skin.
Here at The Motherhood Center we just received a new arrival of adorable prints for summer! Check out this week’s video on Bebe au Lait- and don’t worry, I don’t try to demonstrate breastfeeding. 🙂
