BabyBond Review + deal

I have to admit something...yes another admission. As you all must know by now, I am pregnant with my 5th child. Here is the admission. In all of the 4 previous babies, I have never owned a nursing cover. NEVER. I was always a mom that used the blanket and fought with the kid under it and inevitably ended up flashing my exposed breast to the world on a daily basis. Sad but true...

So, I absolutely JUMPED at the chance to test out and review the Baby Bond Nursing Sash. I picked the Couture style to try out.

Now, with my last baby, I was able to try out a certain nursing cover out that actually made it a bit easier as I did not have to hold or balance the blanket while holding the baby-it just tied on to my neck and hung there. BUT I had some complaints, I still could not really see my baby down there buried under the covering, and I was cold-that's right cold nursing the baby. I usually pull up my shirt to nurse (occasionally the shirt is easier to pull down, but generally I end up pulling up the shirt). So, I leave my whole stomach/back area exposed and cold. This is part of the reason I chose the Couture style to review/test out.

The Couture style can be used in 2 ways. One is as a Nursing Sash where you wear it at the top and pull your shirt down. It is not bulky and does not cover the baby up, but it DOES cover you up and keep you modest! When using the sash that way, it has an opening where you can open the latch to nurse the baby.  It works like the picture at the top of this post.

The second way this style can be used is as a belly band that you essentially wrap around your belly like a belt and it keeps you covered (and warm) while you nurse when pulling your shirt up (as I typically do). 

Now, as I said, I am pregnant right now and baby is not coming until April, so I have not had the chance to try this out with an actual baby nursing yet, but I did get it out of the box and try it out. The first thing I want to not is how compact it is when rolled up-you could easily tote this around in even a small diaper bag. 

I was afraid I would have trouble figuring out how to make this work (since I have never used anything like this before), so I was very thankful for the easy step by step, simple instructions on the box AND on the tag in the band itself about how to use this as either a sash or a belly band. It took me a couple tries to figure it out, but in the end I got it.

I really like it as a belly band especially. It covers me and keeps me warm. And it is great as a Nursing Sash too since it lets you nurse your baby without lots of bulk in the way. I LOVE that on their website they say that "After All, dining is social." I SO agree with that and I really look forward to using this product with my baby when he is born in April.
