Of course, not every mom feels comfortable just whipping out a boob, so nursing covers are a nice way to feed your hungry baby wherever & whenever without getting uncomfortable stares from passersby.
You can buy brand name nursing covers and Etsy is loaded with cute ones, but I found a tutorial on one of my favorite crafty blogs and decided to make my own. It was surprisingly simple and also cost less than buying a pre-made cover. All you need is 1 yard of fabric, a pair of metal D rings, and a 14" piece of boning (which is a stiff, curved thingy to make the rounded semi-circle at the top of the nursing cover, enabling you to look down & see what your baby is up to).
