Balboa Baby- A Traditional Nursing Cover

     You may remember me writting that August was National Breastfeeding Month. I promised that I would be reviewing three nursing covers. Unfortunately, the timing of these posts was bamboozled by some major life events. The past two weeks have been a crazy blur of vacation and enjoying those we love, followed by a party-crashing hurricane named Issac.  More about our vacation and our hurricane survival later! Without further adieu, my final nursing cover review:

    The Balboa Baby Nursing Cover is the classic model of a  nursing cover (compared to Moboleez or the Dria Cover).  By classic, I mean that it hass a large piece of fabric for full frontal coverage. The cover is held up by a wide strap around the neck, and there is a metallic "bone" which allows you to view your baby from above.  The product is of very high quality, and thus I would not hesitate to say that The Balboa Baby Nursing Cover is the Mercedes Benz of traditional nursing covers.


     This cover is made of thick fabric that holds up to pulling, tugging, and multiple washings. It is heavy enough to keep your nursing sessions private but thin enough to provide ample airflow for your baby. The cover also has small gathered darts in it to make the cover form more of a circular area around your body. The neck strap can be adjusted by moving the fabric along a beautiful toggle (on my cover the toggle was brown and stone-like).  It is offered in many great patterns, and depending on your personality you can choose one that's modern, understated, or cheery.


     To be quite honest, I was planning on reviewing a cover of a competitor of Balboa Baby, however when the cover arrived to my house I knew immediately that I could not write a favorable review. I try not to be overly negative on this blog, but keep it honest, give the pros and the cons, and state what works for me and my family.  The Balboa Baby nursing cover is a QUALITY item. It looks nice, it feels great, and it is functional. Just another note regarding the other company: When a company offers a free nursing covers (you pay only shipping) you get what you pay for.  So, in summary, if you want a traditional nursing cover, and you seek quality, Balboa Baby is your brand!

  7. I really like the toggle. My old nursing cover is just a metal circle. I think the different toggles are a very nice detail. Every little bit of pretty helps when you're trying to nurse!
