hi there- i plan to bf again, on demand, and this time i am in the middle east. I would like to know if anyone has used a bf cover like the bebe au lait ones. i love the look of these and how they don;t lay on the babies head.... any stockists in the uk you know of? many thanks for any help

Blueberrysorbet - I have one which I bought from this site and I highly recommend it. I actually (bizarrely) use it sometimes at home when DD gets too distracted by exciting things like a speck of dust to feed properly wink

I've also seen them for sale in the big John Lewis department stores so they might be online with them too.

Also saw this at JoJoMamanBebe earlier.

i bf in the middle east with no hassles. i wouldn't get a bfing cover especially for that. you can always use lovely scarves instead.

or a wrap sling, like I did or a ring sling.

Don't get a breastfeeding cover.It's barking. Just a muslin will do. Never had any issues b/feeding in ME either.Koran specifically proscribes breastfeeding.

Hi all
I use a breastfeeding cover called a Mamascarf and think it is fantastic. I don't go anywhere without it. I did try with muslins but the thing I didn't like about them is that they can be pulled off (this can't) and they block the view of your baby while you are feeding (you can see your baby with this). Also if baby comes off mid feed, youcan latch them back on in privacy (with a muslin, I found I had to take it down so I was on show anyway!!) The big bonus for me is the support it gives, as I was finding my arm would ache without my widgey cushion. The best £15.99 I ever spent!!
