I think the Baby Bond Nursing Sash is very possibly one of the most useful baby items I have. I am exclusively breastfeeding my second daughter, which was my goal, but I wasn’t sure if I was going to be able to go through with it. I am a very active person who can’t stand sitting around the house. I am also a very modest/conservative dresser and was very apprehensive about nursing in public places. It is one of the reasons why I was not able to exclusively breastfeed my first daughter. I wasn’t comfortable breastfeeding without a cover but I wasn’t comfortable using a cover because I felt like it was glaringly obvious what I was doing. So, this time around I was determined to find some way to overcome being uncomfortable nursing in public so that I could exclusively breastfeed.
The Baby Bond nursing sash has made that possible for me because it is a sash that goes around you with two fabric pieces in the front, one to each side of your breast and your baby can latch on in between while the fabric hides all of your breast. It’s great because you can see what you are doing, which is important for me because both times my girls have had trouble latching and with my first, it was so hard to get the latch right while trying to hide under a cover.
BabyBond™ nursing accessories cover mom, not her baby. Mom is able to maintain her modesty. Baby remains uncovered benefiting from the infinite opportunity to make eye contact, interact, and communicate. After all, dining is social.
It is also fantastic because it isn’t really obvious what it is or what you are doing. Most people will just think you are holding your baby, which makes me more comfortable with nursing in public.
The Baby Bond comes in 3 styles: original, flex and couture. The original and flex appear to be a similar style, with a closed fabric sash that can be used for nursing from the top of your shirt. They both also come with a built in terry velour burp cloth. The couture was the one I reviewed and it can either be worn as a cover for when you nurse from the top, or you can wear it as a belly band if you lift your shirt up to nurse and want to cover your belly. The original and flex come with a matching storage pouch, and the couture rolls up into a self storing pouch for neat and compact storage, which is nice. It comes in a variety of basic colors to choose from, but it would be nice to see a larger variety in the original and flex styles.
I love my Baby Bond nursing sash and make sure to always have it in my diaper bag and ready to use. I think it will be one of the best products for someone who wants to keep their modesty and be able to nurse discreetly without having to cover their baby under a nursing cover.
