Some women don’t need nursing covers and instead can sneak away to feed their young ones in private each time they get hungry. I’m not sure if I just happened to end up with two incredibly voracious eaters, but I feel like I would be spending my entire life in a back room if I went with that method. Instead, we end up feeding on the go numerous times a day, oftentimes in large groups of people.
To many this means propping up blankets, coats and more to nurse, something me and my wiggly babies have never been able to do comfortably. Instead, I have found that I need to have a solution that moves with me and allows my child to eat and squirm comfortably.
One of those solutions is the L’ovedbaby Nursing Shawl that is the perfect way to discreetly nurse in public, offering privacy, warmth and shade, as well as making it easier for baby to eat without distractions. No more fighting with a blanket, no more struggling to stay warm, and no more banishing to the bedroom!
The shawl itself is a one-size-fits-all design and is really lightweight and soft, especially the sueded top layer. Although the shawl is a bit warmer than ones I have tried previously due to the two sided design as well as the fabrics used, we haven’t run into any overheating issues with my little one. I have found it perfect for nursing in cold weather as well as indoors for both me and the babe.
The L’ovedbaby 4-in-1 Nursing Shawl is a great full-coverage solution for nursing, with front and back panels that are long enough to cover your entire front and back. The opening of the L’ovedbaby is scoopneck on both sides with no stiff edges that make it hard to fold. Although this also makes it a bit more difficult for hands-free viewing of the baby, this feature is something that would be great for women who do nurse outdoors quite a bit or for those who nurse sitting down with others nearby and don’t want an open gaping neckline.
If you are having a problem with your baby rebelling against a cover while eating but still want to cover up your upper chest, I found a really easy solution with the L’ovedbaby, which was twisting the cover so I was wearing it sideways with the longer front and back positioned at my sides. This method of wearing it gives you fairly minimal coverage, hiding your décolletage but still leaving baby exposed and free to move about.
As with all great products for mom and baby, the L’ovedbaby Nursing Shawl is machine washable and dryable, and even comes with a matching drawstring pouch to keep it clean in between feedings. When folded and placed in the pouch, the compact design is smaller than a paper back novel and only weighs 7oz, which makes it easy to pop into a purse or diaper bag.
Besides a great design for nursing both away and at home, the L’ovedbaby Nursing Shawl really is multi-purpose. You can actually use the shawl as a baby blanket, a carseat canopy, stroller cover, and even for covering up while pumping breastmilk!
Even if you aren’t nursing your little one or don’t need a breastfeeding cover, you should definitely check out L’ovedbaby for their great line of basics for birth to 12 months. We got to check out a pair of their Signature Pants in their cotton basics collection and they are exquisite. Besides being super soft and comfortable, they are also really stylish with a modern cut (no cuffed legs! no waistband pulled up to the nipples!) and they even have faux pockets in the front to add a little flair.
I love that they can be dressed up or down depending on your schedule that day, which makes them one of the most well-loved pieces in the closet. My son wears the L’ovedbaby signature pants for relaxed days at home as well as with his collection of adorable of tops for playdates and days out on the town.
