When it comes to nursing in public, every mom develops her own level of comfort and preferences. Some moms prefer to cover up or retreat to a more private area while some moms feel just fine to breastfeed anywhere, anyhow. With my two boys, who I breastfed for a year each, I was somewhere inbetween. One of the more frustrating issues, however, was lifting my shirt to nurse– I wasn’t so concerned with bearing part of my breast, but rather with exposing half of my stomach and back. I could wear an undershirt, but still had to fiddle with the awkwardness of separating two shirts.
Enter Undercover Mama. Elisa, founder of the Undercover Mama shirt, expressed the same frustrations with nursing in public, which is how she came to develop the shirt. The Undercover Mama shirt is a tank-style undershirt, but in place of straps there are hooks that attach to any nursing bra (or regular bra), turning any shirt into a nursing shirt. Here’s a demonstration:
Undercover Mama was kind enough to send me a shirt to try. Even with my 28 week belly, the fabric was soft and stretchy enough to fit (which means it will be great for the ever-changing postpartum belly) and the workability of the hooks was great! Using the shirt is as easy as unsnapping and peeling back a nursing bra cup. Brilliant!
Undercover Mama is giving away one of their awesome shirts to a Giving Birth with Confidence reader!
