I have written before on my feelings on feeding covers, so I won’t dwell on it too much here. Suffice it to say this: If a mother wants to breastfeed, but is shy to do so in public, and faced with a bottle of formula or feeding cover, I would rather she went for the feeding cover.

To cover or not to cover is a surprisingly huge issue in the mother vs. mother politics of the breastfeeding world – personally, I don’t care. If it makes it easier for you to feed your baby, then go for it. If you don’t want to, don’t. No mother should be forced to cover up, nor should she be forced not to.

MamascarfI used a cover for the first while, until I was comfortable with  feeding in public, until I had a better grasp on what I was doing and until I no longer worried about the role of baby fat visible around my waist – it’s still there, I just no  longer worry about it! I also found that it was very useful in getting Ameli to sleep as she’d sometimes be so distracted by what was going on around her that popping the cover on cut her off from the world, without cutting her off from me.

So, should you wish to use a feeding cover, this is a giveaway for you: Mamascarf.

The Mamascarf is a feeding cover which can be worn as a scarf until it needs to be used, or folded neatly into a handbag or changing bag. It has a hidden pocket wherein you can store your breast pad – very useful, I might add! – and one size fits all.

The Mamascarf is machine washable at 30 degrees and is made of 100% cotton, so you won’t get the sweating you might with synthetic materials.

Keira, the mama behind Mamascarf, has kindly offered to support Diary of a First Child again this year, and has offered one of our readers the opportunity to win a scarf of your choice.
