The linked wrap is very pretty. In general, though, I just recommend making shawls. The bulkier coverups out there make it way too obvious what you're doing, and no one wants to eat with what's essentially a blanket over their heads. Any lacy shawl pattern should give a new mama confidence without hanging a neon "Nursing in Public" sign over her head.

Here are some links to nice shawl patterns:
Beautiful Baskets Shawl (.pdf format)
Blue Jeans Shawl
Country Cotton Shawl (You'd need to make this somewhat bigger than the pattern calls for.)
Easiest Shawl Ever (Please, dear Lord, leave off the tassels...)
Elegant Shawl
Sparkling Evening Capelet (.pdf file)
Everday Shawl
Pretty in Pink Stole (.pdf file)

In general: leave off any fussy edgings, especially stuff like tassels or fringe. If you're unsure about a pattern, just ask yourself if you'd want to drape it over your face and drink a milkshake.

PLEASE do not PM me here; I'm trying to get better about visiting but sometimes months do pass. If you have a question you need answered before you die of old age, please e-mail me through my profile.

Ponchos are great too, because as they get older, they start pulling at the fabric and shifting it. Ponchos stay put because they are over your head and don't slip off. My daughter used to pull my wrap all the time, then I got smart!!!
