Baby Bond Review and Giveaway

Nursing is one of those touchy subjects that I normally choose not to bring up to most people. I don't know a lot of women who breastfeed, and I feel like it's all awkward. I really hate that. People believe in things so strongly that they argue. Now don't get me wrong, I am a die hard nursing Mama. I could tell you all the benefits, but so could a Mom who uses formula. I don't judge them. I'm the only one in my family in my generation to breastfeed. With all that being said, I fully support products that help Moms who want to breastfeed. We need all the gadgets we can get because, lets face it, we don't live in a nursing Mom friendly world. Is it a shame? Of course. I'm not against covering my baby up, but I live in Arizona and it gets too hot for that!

I came across Baby Bond nursing sashes and instantly fell in love with their unique idea. Why cover the baby up? Once I discovered nursing tops, I was in love with those as well, so it should have been no surprise to me that I would take to this nursing "cover". Let me give you a little peek at what a Baby Bond looks like and then I will go over my favorite features!

Original Flex Couture



Baby Bond comes in a few varieties, but they all work the same way. The only things that change are burp cloth and fabric options. I love that the Baby Bond works like a nursing top, one piece of fabric goes up and one goes down. This action creates an opening for your baby to eat through. Your shirt you have on keeps your sides covered and the Baby Bond keeps the rest of you covered. Baby can eat and not have a blanket over his/her head!

I adore that Baby Bond says dining is social. It totally is! I love going out to eat and chit chatting with family and friends. It seems so silly that we should have to cover our babies up and not let them participate. I don't have to give up my modesty anymore and my baby can join in on the dining experience.

For review I received the Baby Bond Flex.

Flex

The Flex is basically the same as the Original, except with the Flex you have the option to take the burp cloth off and replace it with your own or not have it at all and with the Original, it is built in so you cannot remove it. Both the Original and Flex come in Espresso, Charcoal and Black.

The Couture Baby Bond is adjustable. You can wear it like a sash, like a nursing top or you can wear it like a belly band. The Couture comes in Espresso(dark brown), Hudson(black), Riviera(turquoise), Classic(navy) and Barcelona(charcoal).

Couture

All three of these sell for $35.00! You pick the one you want the most and they are all the same price. I love that!

This is seriously one of the best inventions for nursing Moms. You don't have to have your modesty compromised, but you don't have to stash your baby under a blanket anymore! I also love that they come with a little pouch to store them in and the fabric they are made out of is SO soft. You know that worn in t-shirt feel? That is how these babies feel! They are 100% cotton and machine washable.

  64. i LOVE this idea... i wonder how it would really work. i would love the Flex in charcoal... and t-shirt feel? that's one of my favorites. i'm a FB fan of baby bonds. and yes... i hate the nursing cover. not only does it cover baby (literally) but it rarely stays put and gets so very completely in the way!
