I had the "Hooter Hider" from the same company that makes the Bebe au Lait (not sure how they're different), and would highly recommend it. It stays open on the top so you can look at baby, and keeps it off their face. I wasn't organized enough to always take it with me, so after about 6-8 months of nursing I just didn't cover up anymore :) And I often wore my BellaBand to hide my flabby tummy!

Brenda I have purchased a exercise shirt that is long and easy to pull over the boob to flip bra down...i know am able to wear shirts that i like and ordinary not b/f easy...i just pull the bottom up pull the undershirt over and pull the boob out and the top shirt covers baby just fine...and i dont have to worry about skin showing from pulling the first shirt up...but for the comfort zone of my husband when hes with me i use a receiving blanket to cover with and no one would ever know....I also found that Target sells undershirts that you can unsnap as you would with the b/f bra and they work really well also...

I think Bebe Au Lait makes good covers too. I use a blanket when my monkey is doing the pop-off every 3 seconds dance.

What I do is wear a tank top underneath and a regular shirt over. That way I pull the tank down from the neck (make sure it isn't one you want to use again for anything else) and pull the base of my overshirt up. Voila, nursing shirt without spending the money on it. :) Works great, then I have a lightweight scarf I cover with, or try to anyway, my son doesn't really like to be covered....

There is a store called Motherhood Maternity, it's here in the US, and I have found EVERYTHING I need there. Why don't you browse online?
