Breastfeeding is hard enough, but if you’ve ever breastfed a baby in public, you know it comes with its own set of challenges. Whether it’s extra distractions keeping toddlers from getting busy or worrying that you’ll flash everyone within 50 feet, that’s enough to make you want to stay home sometimes. Nursing blankets and blankets can help, but they’re not always ideal, especially if the weather is hot or you have a baby who hates having their face covered. (Who can blame them? I don’t want to eat with a rag in my grill either.) One of the coolest solutions I just found? The Mobobaby 2 in 1 Nursing Blanket and Cap.

The design so simple it’s brilliant is the world’s first “nursing hat”, serving double duty as a blanket for mom and a soft, stylish sun hat for baby. (Are we surprised it was designed and made by a mom? No. Not at all.) Made from an eco-friendly blend of hemp, lyocell and organic cotton, it’s the perfect weight to use even on the hottest summer days and unlike others. traditional blankets, don’t drape the two of you in a bunch of extra, unnecessary fabric. The fabric is soft and stretchy, so it stays in place without the need for a chin strap – a detail I really appreciate. (When my babies were little, they absolutely hated any hat with a chin strap. It was like an open invitation to rip the thing off right away, which in this case just isn’t helpful at all.)
But it’s the carefully crafted edge that does the real work. It’s wide enough to provide ample coverage even for busty moms, and can be buttoned up for a better view of their sweet little faces. (And vice versa!)

Best of all, because it’s just adorable, it doesn’t scream “HEY! There’s a nursing baby under there!” Stealth power like the pro you are, my friend.
