For Nursing and Conversing

Congratulations to our winner, Lisa F, who was selected by random.org. Much thanks to those who participated!

If you're a nursing mama, you've probably heard of Baby Bond, a company that has created a nursing cover that won't leave you and your baby dripping with sweat after a feeding. Why? Because the days of covering up with a blanket or traditional nursing cover are over!

Baby Bond has created a comfortable nursing cover that allows a mama to maintain her modesty while feeding her baby out in public. The lightweight cover has two layers that spread apart to keep mom covered while allowing the babe to nurse.

We opted to try the Flex nursing cover, one of three styles made by Baby Bond. The Flex cover is worn like a sash and comes with a removable burp cloth. Those of you who have been the recipients of Nathaniel's geyser-like spit-up following a meal understand just how essential this became as part of the feeding process.

I first used the Baby Bond cover while nursing at my in-law's house. The first time, it was a little awkward. Positioning the cover JUST SO in order that my boob wasn't hanging out for all to see while handling a squirmy, hungry baby was a bit challenging. But once he settled down and we began to nurse, it was clear that nursing using this cover was going to give us an entirely new level of versatility.

Having used the Baby Bond cover several times now, I can say that I genuinely appreciate being able to see my son while nursing rather than stuffing him under a nursing cover that becomes entirely too hot, especially during the summer. The only challenge? A grabby baby. Although I have lost SOME modesty since my evolution into a mother who is completely comfortable nursing in public places, I don't enjoy flashing that 13-year-old boy at the restaurant when Nathaniel grabs the cover and yanks it down. VIGILANCE. It's an important part of this process, mamas.

All in all, our family likes our new nursing cover, especially when the babe is nursing calmly with mama holding his hands. It provides increased flexibility when nursing in public, the burp cloth is VERY absorbent (thank you for testing this out, dear son), and best of all, the babe and I won't overheat when nursing outside during the humid Minnesota summer.

Because we love the Flex cover, Adventures of the Stay At Home Mom has partnered with Baby Bond to offer one lucky reader the chance to choose a cover from the Baby Bond collection!
