This is one of the cool things about the 8 1/2 year gap between children--there are all these products out there that we didn't have last time!
So since Little Bit was born, I have seen all the cute nursing covers out there. I wanted one if I ever had another child. Little Bit was born in November and let's just say I did my fair share of public nursing because Christmas shopping, it had to happen! I'm all about nursing in public. If your child is hungry--feed them!! But I'm also a Christian, so I'm all about modesty.
My friend Rachel from The Other Huse, sent me this awesome package in the mail:
It's from her Etsy shop Shut the Front Door.
When I opened it, I saw the beautiful fabric she had let me pick out earlier.
Isn't it beautiful? I wanted something pretty and grown up looking. Not fabric that screamed "HEY LOOK! I'M NURSING OVER HERE! SEE THE BABY FABRIC MY NURSING COVER IS MADE OF?"
You understand. And I told her I wanted greens. But then I saw this one and fell in love. It was also important it not be black or dark because summer + Texas + nursing under black nursing cover = sweat. Lots of it.
It's the kind of nursing cover with the boning at the top so you can see baby. Like this one:

Wait! I haven't even told you the best part! Rachel and her friend who run the Etsy shop are Army wives. Are you ready for the name of my awesome nursing cover?
Oh come on! That is hilarious!!
Speaking of camouflage...there is one other thing I would like before baby comes. Maybe after our income tax refund?
Modest Middles. I know I have the nursing cover, but even for just around the house, it would be nice to not have the squishy middle parts of me hanging out for everyone to admire. Right? These make it so you can wear pretty much any shirt.
Also I have been VERY productive this week! Can't wait to share pictures with your tomorrow!
