Bebe Au Lait Breastfeeding Cover, Yoko
Very useful when out in public. Find it comes in handy when eating out with family. I would definitely recommend it.

One of the best bits of baby kit I own
Can't recommend this cover highly enough - it has been a life saver for me knowing that I can confidently feed my baby anywhere when we're out and about. It's always in my baby bag and it has multiple functions - I often peg it over the pram as a sun cover, it can wrap around baby as a light blanket when in the pram, we've sat on it in the park, and I've used it (folded) to cushion baby's head when changing on a hard surface. It also has meant that I can wear normal clothes instead of being limited to breastfeeding tops. (I found it much easier to use than the Faye and Lou Butterfly)

Useful to keep dignity
Ok to use. A little fiddley at times. Needs to come in some more optional colours..

Stylish and practical
I am still eagerly awaiting the birth of my baby so cannot fully review this product. I bought it on the recommendation from a friend and am pleased with the product. It will provide complete coverage of my modesty, whilst allowing baby to breathe and prevent them getting too hot. I particularly like the design and quick ease of use.

This does a fab job of providing discreet coverage. Folds down well. Would recommend.

I never used one of these with my first child however having seen another mother use one so easily (and especially breastfeeding in these winter months we will need some shielding) I purchased one. I feel very comfortable using it and it folds up neatly to just pop in the bottom of the changing bag. I would prefer it to be plain in design though which would make it even more disreet. But overall a general size which covers you up and a wide neck so you can maintain eye contact with feeding baby

Every breastfeeding mums saviour!
As a new mum who is exclusively breastfeeding, I had been terrified of going out and being caught short by a hungry baby. This apron is fantastic - it fits in my nappy bag taking up little space, it's easy to put on, it has a nice contemporary pattern, and most of all, gives me the confidence to breastfeed my baby whereever I am in public. Great purchase!

Stylish & multifunctional but a bit fiddly for me!
I bought this for breastfeeding in public places after a train journey where I ended up accidentally flashing a boob at the poor unsuspecting ticket inspector. It's soft cotton with a very stylish print - the idea is that you hang it round your neck so your baby can feed in peace whilst you protect your modesty. I found this a great idea in theory but particularly in the early days when I was struggling with latching techniques and supporting my baby correctly I found it an added difficultly to position him correctly with the cloth hanging over him and I also found the material swamped him a bit. However I was never very skilled at latching him and am quite a clumsy person so it might be me that has the design fault instead of the product! I have seen other women using it with apparent ease so I know it is very popular but I haven't used it much for breastfeeding. I have however found it very useful for expressing with the breast pump while we've visitors in the house (my husband was particularly grateful for this when his mates were visiting!) I also found it very good on holiday for shielding the baby from the sun whilst he was in his sling or being carried whilst outside.
