The Skinny

Bebe au Lait's 100% premium cotton nursing covers are pretty and functional. With a rigid yet flexible neckline with adjustable neck strap, baby has adequate ventilation and mom can see baby while nursing. Two terry cloth pockets are on the inside for storing small items like pads or pacifiers and are helpful for clean-up. Its large dimensions (36" w by 26" l) allows mom and baby privacy, yet makes it multi-functional for use as a sunshade for baby.

Our Analysis

The Bebe au Lait provides a compelling way to nurse in public settings with pride. It is a simple, lightweight, and attractive solution that gives you privacy and modesty while nursing.
