BooB*TooB Nursing Cover Review and Giveaway! - CLOSED

THIS GIVEAWAY HAS ENDED.

Have you ever tried to nurse in public, only to have your ten month old kick the cover off revealing you to some lucky onlookers? Or, like me, are you slightly embarrassed to show off your baby's former home because your nursing cover or blanket just isn't big enough?

Well, that is why Nicole designed her very own nursing cover, the BooB*TooB! It is the only nursing cover that's got your back, and your front, and your sides!

Nicole is a mom to a one-year old named Roman, the inspiration behind the BooB*TooB. She was so sweet to work with and when I asked her to tell me about herself, she included that her favortie food is anything with cream cheese. I mean c'mon don't you just love her already?

When I found BooB*TooB on Etsy, I was thrilled that Nicole agreed to do a review and giveaway because this is exactly what I have been looking for. I am not a pro-nurser. I mean I love to do it, and I nurse my daughter full time, but I am the mom that needs a comforter to cover up when feeding my child. I have breastfed three children, and I just am not able to nurse discreetly. I have to hike up my whole shirt and reveal more than I would want to show any stranger to get the job done. So needless to say I thought this was an awesome find.

Well, let me tell you, it is amazing! It has elastic around the top and bottom so it fits any part of you, no matter what size you are or how big or small your baby is. It wraps around you completely so that you could pull your whole shirt up if needed and no one would ever know. You have the option of covering up your baby completely, which is what I did. Or if your child is bigger, you can just let their feet hang out. Plus it is really easy to use and folds up small to shove in a diaper bag. The only thing I missed was being able to see my little one while she was nursing, but all I had to do was peek inside to know she was fine.

If you are one of those amazing mommies who can nurse and do something else, this is the perfect cover! It allows you to hold your child with one arm and still be on the move.

She has a wide selection of fabric styles, so I'm sure you'll find one you love. And, the fabrics are so cute, most people won't even notice you have a nursing cover on because from the back it just looks like a shirt.

It is made up of lightweight cotton fabric so it doesn't get as hot as some blankets can and is totally machine washable. I washed it in a normal cycle with other clothes and it held up great.

And, as an added benefit, if you are at church and your baby has a blow-out and you don't have an extra outfit for her, the BooB*TooB is big enough that you can swaddle your baby up and no one knows she is naked underneath....yes, this did happen to me this past Sunday.

If you are looking for a baby gift, this is a great idea. Nicole even neatly wraps it in a pretty tulle bow and includes directions for you. But, if you need further help, she has videos on youtube that give you step by step directions on how to put it on and use it! 

The bottom line...this cover is everything it promises! I would recommend it to any nursing mother and am proud to be able to do this review for you.

  1. I like how versatile she's made it. Bright baby pink, fun animal print, yet also a few more subdued "adult" patterns for it to be less obvious if your out and about!
