I like nursing Jaxon. I enjoy watching his little face while he nurses. Often he'll close his eyes while he nurses, but when he's not tired, he'll just look up at me with his big beautiful eyes. Sometimes when I smile at him, he'll giggle or smile back. It's a special time for us.
I also like going places. Unfortunately, I'm not one of those women who can pull their shirt up and nurse discreetly. So I usually cover Jaxon with a blanket when I nurse in public. But it's been so hot here, anywhere from 85-100 degrees this summer! After only a few minutes of nursing, he emerges from underneath even a lightweight blanket with a red face. I feel so bad for him. Even inside, it's not fun to nurse under a blanket and I miss being able to see his sweet face when I have him covered up.
Enter the BabyBond nursing cover!
The BabyBond covers mom, not her baby! I chose the BabyBond Couture, which can be used two ways: as a sash, covering my breast when I feed from the top of the shirt or as a belly band, covering my stomach as I lift my shirt to feed him. I chose the BabyBond Couture because I usually don't feed from the top of my shirt: I only have a few shirts that are cut low enough for me to be able to do that. The Couture works with whatever shirt I'm wearing. The color I chose, Riviera, is beautiful! My lighting is bad in my pictures, but it's a really beautiful blue that looks so great with Jaxon's eyes!
Here is what I see when I wear the BabyBond as a sash:
And here is what everyone around me sees: a baby snuggled up against his mommy, nothing more!
Jaxon likes the BabyBond...it's very soft and he likes to rub it. He also loves not having to be under a blanket. I like that it rolls up into itself and doesn't take up much space in my bag.
It is very easy to use as a belt/belly band. It essentially just wraps around your stomach and tucks into itself. But I will warn you, there is somewhat of a learning curve when you are using it as a sash. Don't attempt it for the first time in public. Try it out at home a couple of times first. The great thing is, once you do it a couple of times, it will start to come naturally. Also, BabyBond has videos on their website showing how to correctly use the BabyBond. The videos really helped me. To help you if you are out and suddenly get confused, there are also directions sewn into the label of the BabyBond.
