If you’re a breastfeeding mum in Singapore then chances are you’ve had your girls out in public only to end up with some sort of horror directed your way when a stray nipple accidentally escaped. We hear you – we’ve exposed areolas the size of Brazil on more than one occasion thanks to an unforeseen ‘bubba pulling off’ moment. Thankfully things have come a long way in the nursing cover department, and gone are the days we would have to hide under a blanket only to emerge a sweaty mess once feeding time finished. These breastfeeding aprons, ponchos and shawls are lightweight, stylish and guaranteed to prevent any spraying faux pas incidents in your local coffee shop. Yes, mum, you CAN go out and feed your baby in public.
Itzy Ritzy Nursing Happens Infinity Breastfeeding Scarf
We already have our sandwiches all wrapped up in reusable Itzy Ritzy food bags, and it turns out while we eat those sandwiches, baby can have lunch under an Itzy Ritzy scarf (pictured above). A cool everyday accessory that doubles up as a nursing scarf definitely gets a big thumbs up from us.
Itzy Ritzy Nursing Happens Infinity Breastfeeding Scarf, from $29.90, available from Pupsik Studio
Peek ‘n’ Drink
The award-winning Peek ‘n’ Drink nursing covers feature an adjustable tie-back that secures the cover in place while you breastfeed. They’re made using 100% cotton to prevent you and bubba melting in Singapore’s tropical climes, and the styles are all gorgeously snazzy. We particularly adore the Pink Lama and Sorbet Bloom patterns.

We love the gender neutral nursing covers from Bebe au Lait so much it almost makes us want to have another baby. These 5-in-1 jersey knit genius creations can be used as not only a breastfeeding cover, but also as a scarf, carrier cover, shopping car cover and car seat cover! Stylish AND practical. We love ’em.
