Baby Bond Review and Giveaway

9:33 PM



Disclaimer - I was given this product(s) free of charge for review purposes.  These opinions are 100% my own.
I'm a nursing momma, I breastfeed my daughter until she self weaned at 18 months old and now my son at 9 months is a booby monster!  I've always been a firm believer that breastfeeding is the best for baby (but that's not the point of this post and I don't want to start any sort of hot topic).

I was unsure of doing this review of the Baby Bond because I've never been much of a cover up momma!  I have always felt comfortable nursing in public (and have never been giving any criticism for doing so).  I find it to be a hassle trying to cover myself, and baby and more often then not I find myself exposed more then if I just lifted my shirt.

I appreciate the story of how the nursing cover came about and you can read the story under the about tab on the Baby Bond website.  It started out as an idea during a 2am feeding of a Mother that was uncomfortable nursing in public but still wanted to maintain that intimacy between baby and mom while nursing.  Read the full story here

The reason I did decide to do this review was with summer coming there would be cute summer dresses, shirts, etc.  Sometimes these article of clothes, makes it difficult to nurse without really exposing yourself.  I would have pull the dress all the way up and place my baby underneath ultimately covering him up.  Or I would have to pull the dress down which means the breast is totally exposed over the top of my dress.  In this case, I needed a cover.  I don't like traditional nursing covers because they cover everything, it's hot, and in my opinion not necessary.  So when I read about the Baby Bond, it seemed like it was a great fit.  Exactly what I was looking for on these occasions when I wore a dress or shirt that could not be lifted to nurse my boy.
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.












I was sent the Baby Bond Couture to try.  I was interested in this particular cover because of it's duel purpose.  It works as a cover but also if you'd prefer you can cover your tummy and back (ie. belly band) from being exposed while you are nursing your child.  I also really like that it rolls into a self-storing pouch (only the couture does this).

I received the package in the mail and quickly became unsure about the product.  I liked the idea of it still, but I wasn't sure about the message it conveyed.  It took me a bit to finally use the product because of this...

  • I didn't like the idea that Baby Bond focused on the "modesty" aspect of breastfeeding.  I don't feel a women needs to be totally covered to maintain her modesty while nursing her child.
  • I didn't like the slogan "For nursing and conversing.  Feed your baby. Nourish your relationship." because again I don't feel a mother nursing a child should be excluded from conversations with others, be sent to another room, etc. They should be made to feel comfortable nourishing her child the way her body was meant to.
These two things turned me off of the product pretty quickly.  As I mentioned, it was difficult for me to use the cover at first because of these two simple things.  

But, I really wanted to find something that worked for me and what we needed during the times it just wasn't easy for me to breastfeed without exposing myself.  So I gave it a try.  And guess what!  I really like it.  It was easy to use and didn't cover my baby like most traditional nursing covers or blanket.  The best part, E didn't complain while using it. 

So I decided I'd create a short video of me actually nursing E while at the computer.  I think this was a great way to show exactly how easy it is to use.  The section right in the middle of the video shows exactly what it's like to use it with a wiggle worm.  I didn't realize he had snagged a piece of his sisters apple.  And I had to struggle with him to get it out of his mouth but we did all while staying mostly covered.

Enjoy!













Baby Bond has some great videos and pictures on their website to describe features of each of their lines, Original, Flex and Couture (all have the same price point of $35USD).  



My final thoughts on the nursing cover, I like it!  I think it's definitely worth the $35.  They have some great colours to choose from including Chocolate, Night and Charcoal.  The Original and the Flex have different sizes so be sure to check the sizing chart before ordering.  The couture is one sized.

I am still a fan of staying uncovered while nursing but if I am wearing something that makes it harder I always toss the Baby Bond in my diaper bag before I leave the house.  I got over the slogan because I understand there are many women that don't feel as comfortable as I do while nursing in public.  And I know some women have been made to feel that they have to cover or leave the room while nursing.  It's a shame this happens but I know it does.  

All in all I think it's a great option for moms and I'm happy I was able to give it a try!

  2. I like the Couture for the versatility, the colour was hard to choose but I think I would choose Barcelona. I don't often feed from the top, but I think that's because I usually choose tops with nursing in mind ;)
    P.S. I'm already a FB 'like(r)'!
