Covering Your Needs

***WINNER PICKED 4/1 WITH RANDOM.ORG***

***CONGRATULATIONS, Mia J. (non-blogger)!!!***

her comment...
I like the shrine pink hooded towel.


When I was expecting Roo, I was obsessed with the concept of modesty. How was I going to breastfeed in public? What if someone got an unexpected eyeful?! When I discovered the nursing covers by Hooter Hiders (now also known by the slightly more dignified moniker Bebe Au Lait), I was smitten immediately. They come in a zillion gorgeous prints and are incredibly simple to use– I was pretty sure even I couldn't mess them up! Once Roo was born, they were a must-have, multitasking as a nursing smock, a lightweight blanket, a clean surface to change diapers on, and even as a burp cloth. I bought several different patterns and Hooter Hiders became a go-to baby shower gift. I love all of the bold prints but the simple Black Eyelet nursing cover is tres chic and would go with everything.



Of course, when I had Jasper, modesty was no longer an issue. I pretty much had become the "don't mess with me when my baby is hungry!" mommy, whipping them out whenever necessary. Jasper was also a much more fidgety nurseling than Roo, kicking and flailing and sucking emphatically just to make sure people knew what was going on. Perhaps that's why he weaned at 16 months when Roo went past her second birthday. I was a little sad to pass my Hooter Hiders along to new mommies but I was also pleased to discover that Bebe Au Lait has expanded their product offerings to include super deluxe Burp Cloths, Reversible Double Bibs (these look so smart!), and Gift Sets that pair coordinating nursing covers with three matching burp cloths. Total no-brainer shower gifts, every one.



The new Bebe Au Lait offering that I am swooning over most is their Hooded Towel collection. They feature the same gorgeous prints Bebe Au Lait has come to be known for, plus smart extras like sleeves and invisible magnets that hold the towel on like a poncho. Best of all, they come in baby AND toddler sizes, so my growing kiddos could still actually use them… I so covet them.

  1. I would have to say that because I am a nursing mom, my favorite is the nursing cover. I am 4 1/2 months into nursing and wish I had known about this product sooner (or someone gave me something like this...hehee)! My favorite is the "hot dots" color! I think I may just buy this now.

  2. I didn't know that Bebe au Lait and Hooter Hiders are the same company. I wish the website explained how they were different products, 'cause they're still listed separately.
    But, Bebe au Lait or Hooter Hiders, I'd love a nursing cover!

  3. I love the double reversible bibs - I think the magnetic closure is brilliant. I do wish they had some more gender-neutral and boyish prints though - I feel like their prints are all quite girly.

  10. Uh oh. Another bookmark.
    This is a fabulous find superdumb! I've never seen such a luxurious bathtowel for kids. Oh my. I absolutely adore that HotDots. What a fun towel!

    (Please let us know if you get to try one of the towels. We'd love to know what you think). I just think these are the bees knees. And the cats meow!

  13. I love my Bebe Au Lait cover, and I only wish I could use it more. Soren is of the Jasper school of nursing where he is so figgity. Whenever I use the cover, he's pulling at it and gets distracted, so I just use it in emergencies.

  32. I love the "Double Reversible Bibs". Nice to reverse the bib and use the same for a longer time and then wash it. The burp cloths are organic and safe on baby's skin. My 15 month old will feel comfortable with the burp cloths even though he does not like me wiping his mouth. Thanks for this giveaway!
