BabyBond Review & Giveaway CLOSED

Preverbal skills, eye contact, and attention are vital to cognitive and language development & breastfeeding is the perfect opportunity to interact and communicate with your baby.

I don't really know what to call this accessory because it doesn't "cover" like the ordinary nursing cover, it only covers your breast and belly. The BabyBond™ is worn like a sash across your body, the concept is so simplistic yet so genius. Many babies hate to have their heads covered while nursing, they might even pull an ordinary cover or blanket down. Using the cape-like cover is also alot of hassle, bringing unneccesary attention to the fact that you are nursing your baby & it can be so hard to try to peek in to see baby & adjust them without flashing everyone around you.

Most of the time I don't use a cover in public, if I am wearing a shirt that has to be pulled up to nurse then I wear a tank underneath to keep my belly covered or if my shirt can be pulled down to nurse, then I will just pull it down. I feel proud to 'nurse on display' but I have nothing against those who don't feel comfortable with it & I do get a tad nervous that I might be confronted. Also, there are a few certain situations where I would rather be covered a little more. This sash is perfect for those situations.

If you don't feel comfortable with bearing all in public but don't want to cover up your baby's face then the BabyBond™ is for you.


BabyBond™ carries 3 styles of nursing accessories. Here's the info on each of them :)

BabyBond Original™ is worn like a sash, functioning like a nursing top. Nurse from the top of your shirt. Separate the layers of fabric to achieve latch on. Double panel keeps breast covered above & below. Belly & back remain covered with your own shirt. Built-in 9 x 12″ double layer terry velour burp cloth. Stores in matching pouch.

BabyBond Flex™ is worn like a sash, functioning like a nursing top. Nurse from the top of your shirt. Separate the layers of fabric to achieve latch on. Double panel keeps breast covered above & below. Belly & back remain covered with your own shirt. Removable 9 x 12″ double layer terry velour burp cloth. Able to attach any cloth or wear without cloth attached. Stores in matching pouch.

BabyBond Couture™ is adjustable creating a custom fit as your body changes after baby arrives. A hybrid between nursing top and belly band, it can be worn to nurse from the top or the bottom of your shirt so it works with your entire wardrobe. When worn like a sash, it functions like a nursing top. When worn like a belt, it functions like a belly band. Rolls up into self-storing pouch.

All 3 of the designs come in black, Expresso, or Charcoal. They are 100% Cotton, machine washable (On cold, with like colors), dryer safe (On low heat), and made in the USA.





BabyBond™ sent me the 'Flex™' to review.


Each of the designs comes in 4 sizes, here is the BabyBond™ sizing chart:


Now, since Weston was born, I have been wearing mostly size Medium shirts. I am about 5' 3" tall, 135lbs (Shhhh!), & since I am breastfeeding I am a C cup. So, to be on the safe side I ordered a size 2. However, I think I should have went with the size 1. I think it would have been a better fit. You can see in the picture below that little man likes to tug at the sash, making it gap. I think that I would have better coverage with a size 1.


BabyBond Flex™ is worn like a sash, functioning like a nursing top. Nurse from the top of your shirt. Separate the layers of fabric to achieve latch on. Double panel keeps breast covered above & below. Your belly & back remain covered with your own shirt.

BabyBond™ nursing accessories don't cover baby, just mom. Mom is able to maintain her modesty. Baby remains uncovered benefiting from the infinite opportunity to make eye contact, interact, and communicate.



I love the matching pouch that comes with every BabyBond™ nursing accessory!




The BabyBond Flex™ also comes with a removable 9 x 12″ double layer terry velour burp cloth. Of course, you can wear it without the cloth attached or use any other burp cloth (Because you know that one will not stay clean for long!)

It's really a tough choice between the Baby Bond Flex or Couture...they both seem equally awesome.
