MoBoleez? YES! Nursing Covers? Uh... Not So Much

If you're new here, you may want to subscribe to our RSS feed.  Thanks for visiting!

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.MoBoleez Couture - Tropical Tiles

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!

Yes I breastfeed in public, whenever, where-ever. My first child was a receiving blanket baby, and yes they always fall off. One little wiggle and it is on the baby's face. The second time around I bought a moboleez two months before having the baby. I really like it, it takes up less space than a blanket, provides shelter and privacy, never rubs on baby's face, the brim still provides privacy all around even if you have the front flipped up to get the baby to latch on at the beginning, I love it. Look at the new colours, they are so nice. My baby is 5 months old now and I will take my Moboleez whenever I go out.
