It is day eight of my The Love Designed Life Twelve Days of Christmas Giveaway series and I am so happy I found Cover Me Ponchos to share with you for today’s theme, eight maids a-milking!

When my first babe was born, I knew I wanted to breastfeed him for as long as we both were able, and I knew that meant I would have to feed him in public eventually, but when I was actually faced with this task, it felt daunting and intimidating. To be honest, I was pretty shy about the possibility of having myself exposed while nursing in public. Fast forward to today, and I will tell you honestly I care much less about who sees my boob when I am trying to feed my baby and more about the fact that he needs to be fed. Even so, there are still certain times when I feel more comfortable being covered. I wish I would have had a poncho like this around when my first [or second] was nursing!

The first nursing cover I had was a stiffer woven fabric with a wire to hold the top out away from your body so I could see baby. A good idea in theory, but this made it awkward to pack in my bag, and if I was struggling to latch baby on, it would get twisted and sometimes even expose me anyway! I love that the Cover Me Poncho has full 360 degree coverage and is super soft and breathable modal jersey knit fabric. Perfect for our year-round sunny Arizona weather!

It also easily converts into a carseat cover, can be worn as a top over pretty much anything, or even as a scarf, as I wore it on this day with my leather jacket when I wasn’t nursing. And because of the lightweight jersey fabric, it packs easily and compactly into my bag.
