Why eye contact is so important

Ask any breastfeeding mom what her favorite thing about nursing is, and 9 times out of 10, she’ll say that she loves the closeness and the bond that she shares with baby.

eye contactThat skin-to-skin contact, that warmth- there’s so much to love about nursing.

A big part of that bond- for both mom and baby- is being able to see each other.

Direct eye contact is important for breastfeeding because it helps baby to feel secure, and eliminates distraction. It helps mom to ensure a proper latch, and really allows her to share the experience with baby.

Our Nursing Covers have a patented open neckline that holds the cover away from mom and baby, allowing airflow and uninterrupted eye contact. Unlike nursing scarves or blankets, that open neckline allows mom and baby to continue to bond, even while nursing in public.
