Baby Bond is offering our readers a giveaway of a Baby Bond Nursing Cover in the winner’s choice of style and color, a value of $35. The Baby Bond cover makes it easy and comfortable to nurse in public in almost any top.

From our reviewer, Arpita at Up, Down & Natural:

P7050745 One of the many things I’m looking forward to once our little bambino comes along is breastfeeding. The main reason of course is because of the incredible health benefits both to mom and baby. However, I have to admit that a large part of my desire to breastfeed is because coming up on 3 years of trying to conceive, I’m going to want to soak up all the bonding time that I can possibly get with our baby! When I think about our plans for breastfeeding I always wondered how I would balance the fact that I think breastfeeding is the most natural thing on the planet, and the fact that, at least at first, when in public I know I’ll want to cover up. 

Enter, Baby Bond! I was really impressed with this nursing cover when I first saw it. I love that someone finally addressed the fact that it is absolutely ridiculous to throw a tent over your baby’s head while feeding him or her! Of course, I couldn’t fully review this cover since I’m not nursing yet, but I did recruit the help of my sister who nursed my beautiful niece and nephew.

P7050750 My Thoughts: The fabric is SO deliciously soft!! As soon as I took it out of the box, I touched it to my face! I was pretty amazed at how easy it was to figure out how to put it on. I also like that on P7050751 the label there is a how-to. It’s nice to always have that handy. I also really like that it rolls up and has little flaps to keep it tucked in to itself so that it’ll travel really nicely (a la pic #1) I love the deep chocolate brown color! It’s beautiful, and can be worn with anything! I love how stylish it looks while wearing it! No one would have any clue at all you were wearing a nursing cover. 

I have the Baby Bond Couture, which I chose because you can nurse either from the top or bottom of your shirt – which is a nice feature. However, when I tied this the way you would to nurse from the bottom of your shirt, I thought it felt a bit cumbersome and I’d much rather just wear a nursing tank under my shirt if I was wearing a top that I didn’t have access to the breast from the top of the shirt.

I do really love this nursing cover and it will definitely get a lot of use! I will also likely buy one more once I am finally pregnant. It’s not as “universal” as it seems to be, though, so I will be buying other nursing wear as well.

P7050752 My Sister’s Thoughts: It’s nice that you can wear normal clothes and just wear the Baby Bond Couture on top of anything you already have. The Baby Bond nursing cover is especially good if you have a nice dress that you can still access your breast from the top, and then you can just fit this cover over top your outfit when you want to feed. The burp cloth and being machine washable are good features as that is definitely necessary, although the BB Couture is the only style that does not have the built in burp cloth. Being made of cotton, it is very breathable and good for winter or summer.

However, this is an additional item that you now have to carry with you along with everything else you need for baby. There are also only certain types of tops that you can wear and still have access to your breast so you would be limited in terms of tops you can wear.

All in all, I like this cover. It’s stylish, and good for dressy occasions. But, I wouldn’t rush out and buy it if I was starting to nurse again.
