Full coverage nursing covers and stylish cover ups for moms who want to cover up while breastfeeding. Add your favorite breastfeeding cover up to your baby registry. Best Nursing Covers

You might spend a lot of time inside the first few weeks after your baby is born, but eventually you’ll want to get out and about.

While you certainly don’t need a nursing cover when you’re breastfeeding in public—and you shouldn’t feel like you do—some women find that there are times when they want a little privacy.

You can throw a swaddle or baby blanket over your shoulder to give you that privacy. But an actual nursing cover is designed to provide ample coverage, stay on even when your baby squirms, and many can be worn as accessories in between feeding sessions. Note: some babies refuse to be covered up, but most are happy to breastfeed within the cozy cocoon of a nursing cover.

Check out our favorite nursing covers—these look great and give you confidence if and when you need it.

Super Practical

You won’t need to worry about your baby kicking or pulling off this wraparound, poncho-style cover. The stretchy, breathable knit fabric snugly fits around you and your baby while nursing. And later, you can pull it over your car seat to shield your child from sun, wind and curious strangers. You can also use the Milk Snob cover to protect your wee one from germy restaurant high chairs and shopping cart seats—the fabric covers everywhere your baby would touch or mouth.

Dimensions 26” x 30” x 26”
Care Hand wash, lay flat to dry

Roomier Cover-up

Just like Milk Snob, this cover is a multitasker. It can be used as a seat cover and when you’re not nursing, it doubles as a cute infinity scarf. Because it’s a little looser than the Milk Snob one, it’s ideal for bustier or plus-size moms. It comes in a silky rayon blend or a buttery-soft, brushed fabric.

Additional Specs
Dimensions 64” x 14.5” x 30”
Care Machine wash cold and tumble dry on low

Peekaboo Poncho

Want wraparound coverage, but an unobstructed view of your baby? This cover is a poncho made of mesh at the top so you can peek down at your baby without having to tug it open. A drawstring neckline lets you adjust how loose it is at the top. After your feeding session is over, wear it as a scarf.

Additional Specs
Dimensions 38” x 24”
Care Machine washable

Customizable Cover

This is the most versatile scarf ever: it transforms into a shoulder wrap, a shrug, a vest and a tunic. Not to mention that it can also be used as a car seat cover and a light baby blanket. Snap buttons along the edges let you make style adjustments, and when fully buttoned it provides 360-degree coverage for nursing.

Additional Specs
Dimensions 60” x 27”
Care Machine washable

Breastfeeding Camouflage

While some nursing covers scream “I’m breastfeeding,” the Bamboobies Nursing Shawl is super discrete. The pretty poncho comes in black or burgundy, and looks like it’s part of a trendy outfit. It’s soft and flowy with a bit of stretch to keep the top in place while your little one nurses.

Additional Specs
Dimensions 29” x 28”
Care Machine washable

Best on a Budget

Like others on this list, the Copper Pearl cover is multipurpose. It goes from being an infinity scarf and nursing cover to a car-seat canopy and a seat cover. The major difference? It’s less expensive—and comes in a variety of cute prints.

Additional Specs
Dimensions 26.5” x 27.5”
Care Machine washable; lay flat to dry or tumble dry low
