I nursed my son for just over a year. It was rewarding but stressful, convenient, yet difficult. Any mother who’s breastfed for any amount of time can relate to that statement. I am blessed that I have been able to stay home with my son, so I never experienced the stress of pumping, but because of that, he refused a bottle. I am a modest person, and tried to avoid nursing him while we were away from home, but when your baby eats every 3 hours, nursing while we were out was often unavoidable.
I received a nursing cover at one of my baby showers. It was one of the ones that you tied around your neck, and then used a large square of fabric to cover yourself and the baby. Seems easy enough, right? Not for me… First of all, I constantly would forget to pack the nursing cover in the diaper bag. When I did use it, I struggled to have it positioned just right. The overabundance of fabric frustrated my son, and I hated that I couldn’t look at him while he nursed.
Well, problem solved. The latest addition to my etsy shop is an infinity scarf that doubles as a nursing cover. This scarf is made from the same, super soft, jersey knit fabric, but is 50% wider, allowing just enough material to cover you and your baby. When you’re not using it as a nursing cover, it makes for a fashionable “chunky” infinity scarf.
These are flying off the virtual shelves. The grey chevron is the most popular color, and it’s easy to see why. This matches everything. It’s the perfect accessory if you’re going to be out and about. I placed a fabric order today, and the grey chevron should be back in stock the first week in June. I think these would be great gifts for new and expecting mothers. I know that all of my pregnant friends can expect to receive one from me.
