My Boobs nursing top that is! I bet I got your attention now...
Nursing in public has been a hot topic in the past. But I must say, maybe because I am surrounded by new moms, that I have noticed much more acceptance than I expected. There has been a lot of public education lately, which has probably helped the cause. Recently, while I was at a coffee shop with a girlfriend, a man came up to us with our babies and told us that he didn't mind if we breastfeeded our children there. Ok, while the acceptance was cool, he was a little creepy. :)
It's interesting how breastfeeding is treated around the world. Many years ago, while travelling through Egypt, I was taking a ferry across the Nile and was sitting across a women in a full veil breastfeeding her baby. What was so interesting, was that in a country that believes that women should show modesty by covering up fully, she had no qualms about breastfeeding in public. I think this is a perfect example of how other cultures view breastfeeding...as a natural process needed to raise our children.
I want to be able to breastfeed in public, but I have a level of modesty that I would like to protect (along with many other women). So I have become the queen of nursing tops. Nursing tops are those with discreet
access to make nursing in public easier. I have tried Bravado, GlamourMom, Thyme Maternity, Immature, and Boobs. I picked up my Boobs shirt when I was in Ottawa, they are from Sweden and so well made! Immature came a close second. Boobs were never available here, but I just discovered that ToysRUs has picked up the line...yay!! So I highly recommend that if you are in need for nursing tops, check out Boobs!
