  • I think they all work basically the same. There is an Udder Cover and a Hooter Hider that I know of. My friend found a pattern online and made one herself. I love having on and not having to worry about holding up a blanket. It has made family functions a lot easier. My brother in laws will now stay in the room with me (teenage boys, lol) I would highly suggest getting one. Go to this link and you can get an Udder Cover for free, just pay the $8.95 for shipping. That is what I did.

  • Honestly, I found that wearing a low-cut tank under regular tops worked better than my cover. My MIL got me a very expencive Bebe Au Lait cover and after DD was about 5m/o, she would thrash and try to pull it off. With the tank/shirt, she nurses contently and no one is any the wiser. Hopefully, since you ordered one, your kiddo won't mind it. But just be forewarned, she might not!
