With both of my girls, I was able to breastfeed them for the first full year of their lives. I was happy to do this and was thankful I was able to (and didn't have the added expense of formula, etc). With Miss M, I never breastfed her in public. She was an October baby so we spent the greater part of that winter indoors anyway. If we were out, I would feed her in the car or just wait until we reached our destination. I would always go into another room if we were not at home. As a new mom, I was most comfortable nursing her this way and it worked fine.
When C arrived, I did not have the same luxury of staying indoors as I did with M. Now I had a 4 1/2 year old and it was summertime. My sister-in-law had bought me a nursing cover and I used that anytime we were at the park, etc. and C was hungry. I don't remember there even being nursing covers when M was a baby. The cover was okay. C would get hot under it and sometimes bat at it instead of concentrating on eating. I was glad I had it but wasn't completely satisfied using it.
When I was given the opportunity to review BabyBond, I jumped at the chance. It is a nursing cover, but one that doesn't cover the baby! What a great idea! Even though my nursing days are very much behind me, I still wanted to see how the BabyBond would work. I even had a worthwhile accomplice to help me in my review, my niece Caley. She just became a new mom to a ten pound baby girl, "J", a little over a month ago!
