Featured Review: L'ovedbaby 4-in-1 Nursing Shawl

07/06/2007 at 01:04 PM ET

Think You Don’t Need a Nursing Cover-Up?  I Didn’t Either…
by CBB Reviewer Reva

Brown_lovedbaby_nursing_shawl_1smalI’m not shy about nursing in public.  I nurse any and everywhere, and very proudly.  If I feel the need to cover up, especially if I’m not wearing a nursing top with good coverage, I will grab a receiving blanket or cloth diaper from my bag, or the cloth napkin at a restaurant, throw it over my shoulder and part of the baby’s face, and that will be the extent of my modesty efforts.  When I received L’ovedbaby’s 4-in-1 Nursing Shawl, I had thought I would give it a run when out shopping or dining, but that it would be an infrequently used, though nice-to-have accessory.

Keen_greenThe shawl arrived in Keen Green (a lovely mossy sage green) in a stylish compact pouch, and is made of super fine micro-suede that matches the shawl itself.  Great packaging, says my marketing sensibility, and it easily folds back into the pouch. I tossed it on and started nursing 3-month old Leo to see how it would feel if I were actually in public. 

The neck opening was plenty generous to see the baby’s positioning, I was comfortably and lightly covered up, and the whole thing was so soft and airy that it was non-intrusive.  Since it was a particularly hot day, and has been many days since then, I decided to slide some of the shawl between the baby’s head and my arm to reduce the stickiness, yet the air conditioning was making his legs cool, so I covered him up with the other end of the shawl fabric.  It also multi-tasked as a burp cloth when the baby was finished nursing, and was a buttery lightweight blanket to wrap him in as he fell asleep.

While I love a good sturdy cotton receiving blanket, this material was far more luxe and much more compact in my diaper bag, which has to haul stuff for both a toddler and a baby.  On a walk for some local home made ice cream, I used it as a poncho as the night cooled off, and anyone would swear it’s just a fashionable cover up.  (Unlike most nursing tops, which seem to shout “Yes, I’m breastfeeding!”)  This is now a necessity that I look forward to using whenever the time is right.

Choose this multifunctional nursing shawl as a well-priced gift for your nursing friends ($29.95 at www.lovedbaby.com) no matter where they live, and buy one for yourself.  I’ll be using its season-less practicality through the summer in New England, and happily into the winter months ahead.

6_colors_lovedbaby1smThe shawl comes in 6 lovely muted tones.  Their newest color is Clay Gray (it’s only been out in stores since last month). Other very popular colors this season are the Grand Sand and Out-on-the-Town Brown.

Answer: “Make your baby a l’oved baby”
Color choice: Clay Gray

Note: I sure would love to win one of these! When I was shopping for nursing shawls last summer, something told me to get this one. Well I got the Busy Baby nursing wrap instead (thought it was cuter)…big mistake! Baby hated it, I hated it (too hot & heavy). I should have trusted my gut. Thank you so much for the informative writeup! Even if I don’t win one, I’ll definitely buy one for my next baby…
