As a mother who believes in breastfeeding my babies, it is important to me to be able to modestly nurse my babies, even when away from home. I used a cape style nursing cover with Elaine. While it had boning in the top to allow me to maintain eye contact with my baby, it was very hot. The place I nurse my baby most often when away from home is our church nursery. It is a small (but adequate) room, and it easily gets warm when you add more bodies to the room! The cape nursing cover was making me and my baby very hot and sweaty. This did not provide a comfortable environment for nursing!
Enter Baby Bond!
I was so glad to discover the Baby Bond nursing cover. It is a unique design that allows me to remain covered and modest without covering my baby. This allows eye contact, ease of movement, and a cool experience during nursing.
From the Baby Bond website…
“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.” Baby Bond is also the winner of the iParenting Award.
The Baby Bond website is very helpful. Not only are there diagrams, pictures, and descriptions, but there is a tutorial video demonstrating how each product works and should be used. I found these videos very helpful as I selected the product I wanted, as well as to learn how to use this unique nursing cover. Since the concept is different, I needed help!
Baby Bond Products
There are three styles of the Baby Bond. The Original is a sash style that allows you to nurse from the top of your shirt.
The Flex is just like the Original Baby Bond, but it includes a removable burp cloth on the shoulder. How cool is that? It keeps the cloth in place so it is not constantly falling while you burp the baby.
The Couture is a double functioning nursing cover that can be a sash so you nurse from the top of your shirt, or it can be worn as a belly band to allow you to nurse from the bottom of your shirt. It is adjustable also, allowing you to use it through the different changes your body goes through post partum. I chose to review the Couture Baby Bond in the Navy color.
I really like the concept behind the Baby Bond. As I mentioned before, I like that it does not overwhelm me with heat as I am nursing.
I really love that the Baby Bond rolls up into itself. This keeps my diaper bag more organized and neat. It also means that I don’t have a separate bag that can be lost.
I found that I am more accustomed to nursing from the bottom of my shirt, so I was even more glad that I selected the Couture Baby Bond. I don’t wear lower cut or v-neck shirts, and I discovered that I only have a couple of button down shirts which I wear for everyday. (Maybe I need to make my wardrobe more breastfeeding-friendly…).
It did take some practice for me to get the hang of the Baby Bond. A great feature is that there are diagrams right on the product tag. I had watched the video, but when I needed reminded of which way to wear the sash, I could get help at any time just by glancing at the tag.
Nolan and I intend to put the Baby Bond to much more use!
