There are many things I was told to buy for a newborn that I never used. However, there is one thing that I wish I would have had that I didn’t. It wasn’t on the list of must-haves that I certainly could have lived without, ahem- the Boppy. And no experienced mother informed me how convenient it would have been to have one of these.
I wish I had a nursing cover.
I had no intention going into this nursing in public. It was not a desire of mine to whip out a tit and feed a crying baby because “by golly, I’m a mom now and you all need to deal with it.”
But when it came down to real life, a kids gotta eat.
And it was my job to feed him.
I am not a stay at home momma, by day two Lincoln was out and about. The thing is, I had no idea how often those little bundles of joy would want to eat, and I wish someone would have told me.
I cannot tell you how many awkward moments I had trying to cover myself up with a friends sweatshirt or a clothe diaper/burp clothe.
So, if you are planning on nursing. Please, for the sake of modesty, sanity, and your own public embarrassment, buy a nursing cover.
And skip the stupid Boppy…just saying.
