Personally speaking, I don't know how I lived without Covered Goods Multi-Use Nursing Cover with my first two kids. As a nursing mom, I used nursing covers in public but was always worried about the baby flipping it up or the view from behind thankyouverymuch. Not with this thing!! It is a game changer, a life saver, and a genius product that every nursing mother needs, and I'm not exaggerating! The soft fabric is comfortable and stretchy and gives you full 360 degree coverage. Plus, you can wear it as an infinity scarf when not used as a nursing cover. Extra bonus? You can drape in over the car seat for protection from sun and wind, or just give your little one a more secluded environment while in their carseat. It truly is amazing. Read more about it here.
Last but not least, the Copper Pearl Baby Bandana bibs. Keep those teething babies looking so stylish while they drool the day away. These bibs will help complete the outfit instead of cover it up. They even include snaps on the back which will accommodate your growing babe. Check out other reasons we love them here.
