Some women are confident enough to nurse in public, but I’m not one of them. If I’m in store or park, I prefer to cover up with a Hooter Hider/Bebe au Lait Nursing Cover. It’s the same company, the product has two different names.
I had owned one with baby #2 and given it away when she was done nursing, so I was so excited when Bebe au Lait recently sent me one of their new Hooter Hiders to review. I plan to use it with baby #3 and I absolutely adore the new design features! I checked out the Hooter Hider in Siena ($35). This 100% cotton cover, has a white background with a purple and green leaf pattern. I adore the feminine ruffle detail along the neckline and bottom of cover and I know even if I am covered in baby spit up, I’ll be able to throw this on as a I nurse my son (and look glam!). Don’t worry — you’ll be able to easily see your baby, the rigid boning in the neckline allows for ventilation and eye contact with baby. The neck strap attaches to a d-ring and is easily adjustable. The nursing cover will easily fit it your diaper bag and can also be used shield baby from the sun, when in a infant car seat or stroller.
Why does the product have two different names? According to the company’s website, “For 2 years the company was called Hooter Hiders. However, as the business grew, owners Ronnie and Claire Ekelund, felt the company needed a more refined name: Bebe au Lait. The loyal following of Hooter Hider fans said, “It will always be the Hooter Hider to us!” For that reason, the Hooter Hider name was kept and now the same nursing covers sell under two brand names: Hooter Hiders for the tongue-in-cheek and Bebe au Lait for mommy chic.”
Thank you to Bebe au Lait for providing a sample for review purposes.
