I had one of the covers like in the photo, but barely used it, it was ok for getting him attached early on, but then I'd have to pull it aside as he got too hot. Muslins under bra strap were good. But now I just don't bother.....the tops with the cross over drape fronts are good, the ones from asos have big long openings in the under section which is good, so many tops have very small boob slits and it's hard to line Bub and them up, especially once they fidget as get older. I find the drapey cross over top good for when I know he's gunna feed for ages and I'll be somewhere not at all BF friendly, that way u can cover ur boob.
I love my cover, it's called a 'Booby Trapper' they have a website.
It's discreet and doesn't sit on my baby so I can see him too.
I don't think I will give a fluff about it tbh, but will have muslin wraps on hand in case I do get self conscious.
For me, having quite large breasts, it feels very awkward for me to feed in public without a cover. When I do use one I don't have to think twice if my baby is hungry and there is no parents room or private place to sneak off to.
yeah I just know I'll feel self conscious, even more so if I can't get it right straight away and am spending 50 years fluffing about and bub is screaming. my luck there'll prob be some leery old men about too and I'll just go to pieces.
I'll take it one outing at a time but will ensure I have some kind of Muslim cloth or cover handy just in case.
There are also many tops you an wear that are very discreet. I feed my DD under a singlet and the clothing covers any visible breast.
After childbirth you may find your a lot less body conscious. It's not very dignified!!
