Privacy For Nursing Mothers

More and more new mothers are making the decision to breast feed the newborn baby.  Breastfeeding is the healthiest way to feed a child and can be one of the most rewarding experiences you can have as a parent.  When my daughter’s first child was born, 13 of the 15 new mothers in the hospital were breastfeeding their baby.  (If you’re pregnant and thinking about nursing, visit for information and resources for breastfeeding).

When my daughter’s son was born, there were literally no fashionable nursing garments OR patterns to make nursing garments.  How do you go about nursing a hungry baby when you’re at the mall or at a restaurant without putting on a show for everyone?  She ended up designing a wardrobe of nursing clothing garments that could be used at home (pajamas, nightgown), in addition to tops and dresses that could be worn in public places, which allowed her to be able to nurse the baby privately. has patterns in s-xl size range as well as 1x-5x size range.  Here are a couple of examples:

Check out the i-nursing site for many more pattern styles.

In addition, if you’d like to make a nursing cover for even more privacy, visit  the PrudentBaby blog to get the tutorial on making this nursing cover.


Don’t miss out on the joys of breastfeeding your baby – get prepared ahead of time if possible with nursing garments and a nursing cover.  You will not regret your decision to breastfeed your baby!
