Undercover Mama Nursing Shirt: Review + Giveaway

by 

Undercover Mama Nursing Shirt Review + Giveaway - sixtimemommy.comI am extremely proud to say I have been nursing Justin for 21 months now and still going strong! I remember with Jackson I was so terrified I wouldn’t even make it to 12 months but I did and soon after that at 14.5 months he weaned himself. Justin, well let’s just say he is showing no signs of weaning anytime soon. Which is okay.

He nurses mostly at night and the odd once or twice during the day for a quick few minutes. It’s more about comfort I think now than anything as he eats and has eaten everything we do since he was close to 1 year old. But, what happens if we are out at the park and he falls down? He immediately comes to me for a comfort hug and yes, usually wants to nurse. Now I am not ashamed to be a nursing mom, nor am I ashamed he still nurses at close to 2 but I don’t like to draw attention to myself. Around here, it does. So I try to be as inconspicuous as I can be.

That doesn’t mean I will use a blanket or huge cover, because let’s face it that usually draws way more attention. Instead, what I’ve been doing is layering with my absolute favorite nursing accessory, my Undercover Mama nursing shirt. I first blogged about this over a year ago now, which you can read here. I have since picked up two more Undercover Mama nursing shirts; and just recently got this Mint one for review. undercovermama1What is Undercover Mama?: The Undercover Mama is a strapless camisole that attaches to any bra. Keep your back, sides, and front covered while you nurse in style. Make any shirt a nursing shirt with Undercover Mama. Perfect for pregnancy, breastfeeding and beyond. undercovermama2Sizes and Colors Available: Shirts come in the following sizes and colors: XSMALL, SMALL, MEDIUM, LARGE, XLARGE, 2XL

I did request a Polka Dot but ended up getting a Mint and I’m actually pretty happy I did. It’s such a gorgeous color, I tend to wear a lot of black shirts and the mint really pops at the bottom, which I love! undercover34How Exactly Does it Work?: The Undercover Mama nursing shirt attaches right onto your bra strap so you don’t have to worry about extra straps (which is a huge plus, us nursing mamas know when we layer with tank tops this issue!) undercovermamaI plan to wear mine even after I’m done nursing because they are really comfortable and not having to deal with extra straps is a huge plus. I always wear a tank under my tees so I will for sure get a lot of use out of my Undercover Mamas. Not only do I love the length of these tanks, I also love the fact they don’t bunch, they don’t need any adjusting and they have two different ways to hook on to your bra. There is a metal strap hook, which slides over your bra strap and there’s also a very handy little silicone loop. Which the silicone loop just slides over the clasp and stays right in place. I prefer to use the metal strap hook and it stays right in place! nursingbubsWhy I believe every Nursing mom needs an Undercover Mama Nursing Shirt: We’ve all seen the talks, the debates and the attacks. Nursing moms are constantly under fire because some people feel moms shouldn’t nurse in public, some feel they should use a blanket, and some feel they should sit in a bathroom to nurse their little nursling. Me? I’m one to say, do what you want. I’m so sick of negativity when it comes to nursing – It’s hard enough without the added pressure of putting strangers feelings into the mix. So, if you are like me and adore nursing your nursling and don’t want to use a blanket, and are sick of fumbling with straps on traditional tank tops – The Undercover Mama is perfect for you. Not only do you not need a blanket, you don’t need to worry about your stomach being shown to everyone, or fumbling trying to make sure baby is nursing properly without over exposing yourself. Simply lift up your shirt, unclasp the Undercover Mama and you are set.

On a side note: I just wanted to share although I know not everyone chooses to breastfeed, or is able to but – Those of us who do and can are human. Words can mean something, especially to those younger moms who may not have a full support system to get through the tough days. Those mama’s are who I speak out for, and stand up for because it’s tough enough. Breastfeeding isn’t easy for a lot of people, so just keep that in mind. Everyone is entitled to their own opinions, but instead of lashing out a mama you feel should sit in a bathroom to feed her child, just realize she is doing the best she can.

  1. Sounds like an easy way to breast feed. I formula fed my babies, so I am totally unfamiliar with the whole process :)

  2. I wish this had been around back in the day when I nursed my babies. I firmly believe in nursing and I’m so proud of my daughter who nursed all 4 of her boys. I understand that some moms can’t or won’t, but I thought it was so much easier than sanitizing bottles, etc. Love this nursing shirt!

  3. I love the huge selection of colours! Other nursing tops I have only come in black,grey or white. No second straps to worry about – sign me up!

  4. This is SUCH an amazing idea! I would always use a blanket to cover ME more than the baby. I would tuck it down around me so that people couldn’t see my side or belly. This would have been the perfect solution to that. I’m going to tell my nursing friends about this !

  5. What a beautiful shirt!
    Whatever works for a nursing mom and her baby is always high in my books.
    They have changed quite a bit over the years and are offering much more privacy for moms.

  6. This is such a great option for breast feeding mamas! I love that it seems pretty discreet and easy to operate. I think Moms should be able to feed their babies wherever and whenever they need to without any grief!

  7. I breast fed my kids and I had hoped my daughters and DIL would do the same but they opted for the bottle. I wish I had of had the neat nursing products back then, that they have today. I would totally of worn the undercover nursing shirt.

  8. seems like a great nursing top. breastfeeding is a touchy subject for me… my daughter never fully latched; we got to 2 months with a nipple shield. it was emotional. but i just want to say i agree with you on the “let go of negativity” surrounding breastfeeding. we are living in a world where everyone is opening up to much bigger ideas and we’re worrying about women breastfeeding at starbucks…?

    1. I am sorry about your experience! I know how that feels. I have only breastfed 2 babies out of 6. I attempted with previous babies but had to stop due to nasty infections, multiple bouts of mastitis and at the time lack of support. Hugs to you mama!

  9. This is such a great idea! I had the traditional nursing tanks, and the extra straps really were a pain – wish I had known about this one (my little man literally weaned 2 weeks ago)….maybe for the next one :) I would choose polka dot

  10. I breastfed my daughter until she weaned herself at 13 months. It didn’t help that I was away for quite some time due to my job so it made it easier for her to stop. I applaud you for going this long, I wish I could have and that shirt would have sure made it easy for me.

  11. These are cute nursing tank tops. I breastfeed all three of my kids and I wish that I had these. I used to cover up, nurse in a hidden area, or in the car with the ac going.

    I love the mint color.

  12. Love this post, love these tanks and LOVE the last paragraph! The whole mommy bully culture needs to stop. What works for one does not work for all and we should accept that 99.99% of mommies are just doing their very best! Excellent post!

  13. My daughter in law still breastfeeds and her daughter is 2. So many people give her a hard time but I Think it’s great.

  14. That is a cool looking shirt. My daughter in law is still nursing. Her baby is two. She’s done just great!

  15. I LIVED in one of these tanks when my youngest was nursing. LOL, seriously I had so many of them and never left the house without wearing one!

  16. I would get the black I think…..bu yes,I so need one of these for my baby on the way. Thanks so much for this chance. YAY!

  17. My youngest sister has a camisole for her feedings. When I had my son, I was always at home, so there was no need for that type of stuff…. that, and I lived in Texas. They’re more tolerant of breast feeding in public.

  18. What an innovative and wonderuflly designed nursing shirt! Breastfeeding should be something you can’t do…you just need the right attire such as this!
