Welcome to Day 4 of my One Whole Year Event! (Remember, to enter you must visit the original One Whole Year giveaway post, and complete the mandatory entry first. ALL extra entries must also appear on THAT post!)
So far, I’ve announced 3 prizes in the package:

- A prize bundle from HappyBaby, including the book, HappyBaby: The Organic Guide to Baby’s First 24 Months!
This is kind of fun, isn’t it?
Today’s featured sponsor is BabyBond!
As I’ve mentioned, my son and I have been nursing for over a year now. We haven’t nursed in public much, although I believe that every woman should have the right to nurse, and feel comfortable about it, wherever and whenever the need arises. I don’t do it often because we usually keep our shopping trips, etc., pretty short, and because I am not that excited about pulling my shirt up…not because I don’t want to show a boob, but because my post-pregnancy tummy is not something I want to show off. But I don’t have to worry about that anymore! BabyBond is the answer to easy nursing any time, any place!
The BabyBond nursing wrap is brilliant! It’s a small, discreet wrap that is worn like a sash, allowing you to nurse from the top of your shirt. It covers mommy, not baby, allowing for a much more pleasant nursing experience than you get with most nursing covers. Many people will say, “Oh, just cover yourself up with a blanket.” But it’s not that simple. It never worked for us. Sometimes it’s too hot, and sometimes baby just won’t have it. My son would never nurse with a blanket over his head. Can you imagine eating that way? No baby should ever have to.
The other big plus about the BabyBond is that it allows a face-t0-face connection between mommy and baby. I absolutely live for those moments when my son looks up at me with sleepy eyes as he eats, or when he reaches up and touches my face or my hair and flashes a sweet smile. BabyBond allows me to keep those moments, and that’s a true gift.
Other items of note:
- BabyBond is made in the USA.
- Machine washable
- Rolls up into it’s own self-storing pouch, and takes up very little room in a purse or diaper bag.
- 100% cotton (a lovely, soft fabric that looks great and wears comfortably.)
- Check out BabyBond’s philanthropy page. Impressive!
I tried really hard to get a photo of us nursing with our BabyBond, but my son happens to be going through a phase where he is incredibly distracted by the camera. These shots are not the best (yes, that is what my hair looks like on the weekend 🙁 ), but I think you’ll get the idea. (For lots of great pics of the wrap in action, visit BabyBond’s website )
FYI, he IS latched on in this photo, and you can’t even tell…
The decision to breastfeed your baby should never mean that you have to feel lonely, left out, or self-conscious. With BabyBond, you don’t have to.
