So, I’ve always breastfed my babies and always struggled with nursing the hungry baby in public. The typical episode would end with milk everywhere, slipping blankets due to flailing infants, and a baby not very happy with all the time it takes to be modest. I can’t believe it took me until my third baby to find this awesome thing! The other day, I even walked around after my 2 year old in public while nursing and was completely covered. Hallelujah!
I’m not going to give you the how to for this… because I used someone else’s tutorial and tweaked it. I added a big pocket on the front to carry things and another snapped pocket on the front of the big pocket… to put modest things in, like nursing pads. I made the boning 12 inches long because 16 inches seemed like too much to me. It was fun to make and easy! The hardest thing was picking out the fabrics I wanted to use! Due to too many options I may have spent an hour and a half looking at fabric at the store while pacifying the newborn in the baby sling and the two year old with crackers. Yes, I might have done that… The best part was spending $7 (after sales and coupons) instead of $30+ retail! And, finally, here’s a link to the tutorial I used. Happy sewing!
