BabyBond Nursing Cover Review and Giveaway and Discount Ends April 10th!! ~CLOSED~

Sponsored by Tomoson.com

 You have decided to nurse your child and you look all over for a nursing cover that you like.  You purchase 5 different ones and realize that you do not really like them, or if you do like them your little ones do not.  Sound familiar?  I am sure that is how it is for most women out there, especially if this is your first child, first child you are nursing, first time nursing in public, or any other scenario you could possibly think of.  The point is there is always a need for a nursing cover...just finding the right one for you and your baby is the tricky part.
BabyBond™ nursing accessories cover mom, not her baby. Mom is able to maintain her modesty. Baby remains uncovered benefiting from the infinite opportunity to make eye contact, interact, and communicate. After all, dining is social.
BabyBond™ iParenting Award winning patented designs are products of Slurp & Burp, LLC.
Original

For me it is all to familiar.  When I first had my daughter I knew I wanted to nurse.  However, I feared nursing in public or nursing while family members were around.  Why? Because I am a plus size mommy and I could not find a nursing cover that would cover me, the baby, and the mama parts.  It took me 15 months to find a nursing cover that agreed with both me and my baby.  Why is that? Because the covers I did find I liked...my baby decided she did not because they covered her face.  She HATES to have her face covered for ANY reason.  We tried all sort of covers over 15 months.  Even as a newborn she did not want her face covered.  So there was always a fiasco on trying to get her feed if we were out or if there were family members there.  Most of the time baby and me would end up in the other room or if we were out we would go out to the car.  This puts a huge damper in things. Right?



I was given the opportunity to review a BabyBond nursing cover.  I was even given the choice of which one I wanted to use.  I decided based on the information on their website to go with the Flex version.  My choices were Original, Flex, and Couture. This one allowed me to get it in my size and not one that says One-size fits all or even most.  (Because if you are like me you know that One-Size fits smaller people)  I also got to pick the color.  I decided on the Chocolate.  I wear alot of browns and thought this would be great.

Prior to getting the product in I decided to go through the site and learn more about the product.  That away I knew what I should test for and give me ideas of more options I could have.  There is so much information on the site.   I found out that the BabyBond nursing covers typically run about $35.00.  One of my favorite things is there is a video you can watch to learn just how to use the BabyBond nursing cover.
Click on video to watch.

However this is not the only video they have available. This is just the one I used for the BabyBond I received.  I think it is great to see how to put the item on.  Sometimes when you get a new nursing cover you have NO CLUE what you are doing.  Atleast I did not!

On the day that I recevied my BabyBond in I was so excited.  I opened the package quickly.  The packaging came with it's own instructions too.  However, they did confuse me a little. So I just went back to the video.  At first I had the cover on wrong.  I thought something did not feel right.  I was sashing it over the same side baby fed and really it was suppose to be on the other side.  Once I fixed that things were amazing.  I was able to nurse in comfort and so was the baby.  I did not cover her face and I kept myself covered.  My husband was actually OK with me nursing in public.  And since my daughter is 15 months she likes to nurse in very interesting positions, and not one of her positions exposed any part of me.  That was a GREAT positive.


Now onto the other information you care about...the pros and cons.
Pros:
  • Lightweight
  • Can roll up into it's own travel container
  • Does not cover baby's face
  • Comes with a built in Burp rag that is removable
Cons:
  • Not a lot of color choices
  • Does not enable easy switching of breasts to rotate sides for nursing
  • Price is a little higher ($35.00), but if this is the only one you buy it might be worth it
Would I recommend this? Yes, without a doubt.  It takes a bit getting use to but in the end it worked for me and my baby and I am sure it will work for yours!
