In case it wasn't already obvious, I love breastfeeding. That being said, I'm not an in your face, here are my boobs, see me in all my woman-ness, breastfeed in public-kinda-gal. Public nudity is just not my style. Some people that are very pro-breastfeeding would say that breastfeeding openly (boobs out) is completely normal and acceptable. I agree, breastfeeding is "normal" but its also my normal to show a little humility and cover up! That being said, I have not run off to a dark corner somewhere for the past 9 months every time my little one wants to eat. I use a nursing cover.
In the first several months of nursing Weston I used a traditional nursing cover (envision a blanket with a strap around the neck). This week I was super excited to be given the opportunity to try a MoBoleez. MoBoleez is marketed as a modern bonnet for the breastfeeding baby. The product is basically a stretchy, wide brimmed, sun hat/nursing cover.
MoBoleez is made of very soft stretchy fabric so that it fits snugly to your infants head. The fabric is 95% cotton and 5% spandex jersey knit. It is completely machine washable and should be laid out to air dry. Due to the fact that size is important, to ensure a snug fit, there are two sizes of hats. You can order a 0-6 months or a 6-12 months hat.
For the purposes of this review I received a 6-12 months MoBoleez hat in blue, with a little star pattern on it. Scattered around the hat is the phrase, "The Milky Way." Pretty creative little phrase for a nursing hat I must say!
tightly, but comfortably, and stayed on despite his immediate tugging at the bill. Unfortunately,Weston at this age, is now just too squirmy for the Moboleez to remain full coverage. For a smaller or more calm baby, or even a Mama that just needs a little bit of modesty (but doesn't mind an occasional flap of the hat) this product would be great! It just so happens that my boy has bypassed the easy going eater phase, and the current situation is more like wrestling a baby gator.
The above facts being stated, MoBoleez could also be an adorable new baby gift! Given the double use, nursing cover and sun hat, it is a one size fits all kind of Moms gift. MoBoleez can be found at boutiques around the world as well as purchased online. On amazon right now the price of MoBoleez ranges from $22.99-$28.00.
