3 of the best...nursing covers
Every fortnight, journalist and mum Laura Mason will review three of the best baby and child products on the market for.co.uk. This week, she looks at nursing covers.
This Faye and Lou cover is one of the latest additions from the mum duo that started out creating a range of bold muslin cloths. The cover has been cleverly designed to conceal all those wobbly bits you don’t want exposed when nursing, without swamping you!
Available in five funky designs, the covers look chic and can be easily accessorised with your everyday clothing, making it blend in with your outfit. The soft cotton is light and airy, allowing you to focus on your feeding position with baby rather than the shape and structure of the cover.
The Butterfly also comes with a matching print draw string bag to keep it clean.

Bebe au Lait
This multipurpose cover is available in 12 kitsch prints and features many similarities to that of your kitchen apron. One of the key selling points was that the design of the rigid neckline benefits mother and baby to provide a direct line of eye contact between the two while feeding and an added reassurance to mothers that comes with a high neck line that keeps your modesty covered.
The structure also means it can be used as a light blanket or sun shade for baby while out and about.
The cover also features practical pockets which are great for muslin cloths and other feeding essentials.

Bb London Perfect Ways Poncho
A little pricier than some of the other options on the market, however it oozes luxury and is super-soft next to skin for you and baby. Made up of a beautiful cashmere, silk and wool blend, it looks like a stylish poncho, making it an ideal layer in pregnancy and then a discreet cover for nursing.
The buttons make this poncho extremely versatile with options for it to be worn not only as a poncho but as a scarf or wrap depending on the best angles for you and baby, and personal preference.
Available in a soft oatmeal, vibrant fuchsia, classic midnight navy and cool charcoal.
