While breast may be best for baby, some mamas are reluctant to breastfeed because they aren’t comfortable with breastfeeding in public and don’t want to be stuck in their house for months. Stylish breastfeeding covers are a must-have for these mommies.
Shortly before Baby Mwah was born, I received a Slurp & Burp Breastfeeding Cover. This innovative, mom-invented breastfeeding accessory covers the breast without covering the baby. The Slurp & Burp allows moms to discreetly and comfortably nurse in public while maintaining eye contact with their babies.
The Slurp & Burp is a loop of layered cotton material that is worn like a sash over one shoulder of the mother and under her opposite arm, so there is no risk of the Slurp & Burp falling off while you are nursing. There is even a burp cloth sewn into the product, which makes burping a breeze. No more fumbling for burpcloths while baby drools on you! The Slurp & Burp easily folds into a small carrying case and fits into my diaper bag without taking up much room.
The Slurp & Burp is meant to be used with clothing that can be opened from the top such as a dress, wrap top, button down, etc. If you are nursing in a crew neck t-shirt or a similar top that needs to be pulled up from the bottom in order to nurse, you might prefer a traditional blanket in order to cover your stomach. But I found the Slurp & Burp works with about 90% of my clothing.
I own the Slurp & Burp in black. Since I wear a lot of black clothing, it blends right in with my outfits, and I love the pretty Burberry-esque grosgrain ribbon trim. But you can also buy the Slurp & Burp in colorful striped fabrics. There is even an organic option.
