mommy must-have.

As you may have gathered from reading my birth story, I am an obnoxiously modest person.
I wear tank tops and two pieces, but when it comes to the exposure of private parts, I just want to cringe.
Breast feeding in a public place still freaks me out a little, but ever since I started using this coverlet from Pretty Well Covered, I feel more confident about it all! 
When I asked Ian to take these pictures he was like "Oh is it for that thing you're wearing? I like it. It's really pretty."And that is exactly how I feel wearing it-- pretty. 
Nursing seems somewhat animalistic to me, so the fact that I can wear a coverlet that looks more like something from my closet and less like my grandma's apron really glams up the whole thing for me.
Here's me wearing it:


I chose the black one in a size small because, since it is sheer, I thought it would be a bit more discreet than the light colored coverlets. At least for me it is. 
I love that I can still see Greyer and that he can see me through the breathable sheer fabric.


It's really easy to slip on and off and there isn't a ton of extra fabric like those apron-y kinds which frees up room in my diaper bag. 


As if all of that isn't reason enough for you to get one for yourself, Pretty Well Covered is offering free shipping for Frills readers when you use the coupon code: SHIPF4T
You're welcome.
Black and white stripes aren't your thing? 
Check out the pink and white stripes or any of the pretty floral options.

  5. Aw! looks great lady! And, can I just say, I am so glad you are so private like that. Not that there is anything wrong with others who aren't... I just love it because I am so like that. I am not pregnant, nor will I be soon, but I definitely KNOW I will be just like that. Grateful to see your viewpoint. There CAN be balance between viewing and feeling like it's "animalistic" and also knowing it's a wonderful, natural thing. Good for you :) And that Cover is too great!

  7. How awesome is that! It looks like a cute top! Loved your birth story by the way. I'm so glad everything went well!

  8. I like it! I just looks like you have your baby under a pretty scarf. It doesn't scream, "I'm breastfeeding over here!" like some covers do. Good choice.

  13. You are SUCH A GORGEOUS MOTHER. Straight out of the 50s!!! And I love that cover! Maybe for the next one (LORD willing and after this little one starts sleeping)-I just use a swaddle blanket right now. So beautiful!

  14. I like that it is a little bit sheer so you can still see what you're doing. None of that fussing with a blanket.
    I have a giveaway going on on my blog right now! Check it out!
