Had I met Diane Sam of MoBoleez® about 3 years earlier than I did, I would have had one of her hats in every color! As it is, I met her when I had already weaned my youngest daughter so I didn't get to take advantage of her ingenious invention! It almost made me want to have another baby... almost. ;-)
I really didn't have a problem breastfeeding in public, but the oogles and stares indicated to me that a lot of other people did, which in turn, made me a teensy bit uncomfortable, but never enough to deter me. I usually draped my shoulder with a receiving blanket to appease the gawkers (did I say that?), which I was forever adjusting due to the fact that the baby's head would jerk and pull it off. I thought it was a pain in the ... well, you know.
I can't say that I'm too jazzed about those big, bulky nursing covers either. When I see a mom using one, I immediately think, "what big, bad thing is she hiding under that thing?" "In my humble opinion", it sends a message that breastfeeding is something to be covered up and ashamed of. "It is illicit, top secret, too awful to be seen with the human eye." So ridiculous! I also think that in warm weather, the baby would be sweltering under there. Although they seem to function well for moms, they are definitely NOT for me and I imagine a lot of other moms feel the same way.
If I had had a MoBoleez, adjusting the cover due to the baby's movements would have been irrelevant because she would have worn the hat on her sweet little head! A little bit of movement here or there doesn't matter at all. The great big brim of the MoBoleez gives moms a bit of privacy without covering-up the breastfeeding like it is some big bad secret.
And here's a bonus - once baby is done, she can continue to wear the MoBoleez as a sun hat! There has never been a better time to buy a MoBoleez - their brand new line, dubbed MoBoleez Couture features fashion-forward fabrics that are reversible to a solid so you are getting "2 hats for the price of 1".
MoBoleez hats draw attention to breastfeeding in a fun, positive and fashionable way which is what breastfeeding needs - to be once again accepted into the mainstream culture as it once was at the beginning of the last century.
Isn't it time?
Do you/did you breastfeed in public? If so, were you comfortable or not so much. What, if anything, did you use for a cover? I'd love to hear from you!
