Modest moms don’t need expensive new breastfeeding covers, with all the green choices available.
While it’s not difficult to breastfeed modestly in public, many women in the Middle East prefer to wear a breastfeeding cover. And a range of companies will be happy to sell you a new one. But there is a greener way: buy second-hand, borrow from a friend, or make one yourself with fabric you already have on hand. Choose a light-weight all-cotton fabric, so stains won’t show. You can cut up an abaya that you no longer wear, or get something at the second-hand store or gemach (a type of lending library for items with limited use).
